Mold in your residential or commercial property can pose a serious challenge. The harm caused by mold often extends much further than what's visible and can affect areas you might not expect. For instance, mold can damage construction materials, paint and wood finishes, furniture, and even cause structural harm to wood. It can also lead to health complications in both humans and pets, particularly those with asthma or weakened immune systems. A single square inch of mold growth can house over a million microscopic spores, some of which could be toxic.
Professional intervention is essential when it comes to mold removal from your home or business. The specialists at Best Option Restoration of Butler Warren Clermont County are trained and certified for the safe eradication and prevention of mold in residential and commercial properties throughout the Butler Warren Clermont County area.
Mold growth is sometimes clearly visible, which is likely how you spotted it. At other times, you might not see mold growth but might detect a musty or unpleasant "mildew-like" odor. In certain instances, mold is neither visible nor identifiable by smell, but individuals in the property may develop or have mold allergies, experience consistent health issues, show flu-like symptoms such as sneezing or coughing, skin rashes, worsening asthma, and in severe cases, serious illnesses.
A professional assessment of the damage extent is advised, though testing for mold isn't always necessary due to the lack of defined "safe" indoor mold levels. Mold testing can often become an expensive and unneeded cost. It's better to allocate your resources to address the mold issue.
Even if you plan to handle the problem yourself, consulting a professional, like the industrial hygienists at Best Option Restoration of Butler Warren Clermont County, can provide insight into the scope of the mold damage, as it often goes beyond what's immediately noticeable. Mold favors warm, dark, hard-to-reach spaces such as between wall boards, heating ducts, ventilation fans, crawl spaces, and basements. Our technicians at Best Option Restoration of Butler Warren Clermont County have the necessary experience and expertise to locate the source and identify all affected areas.
The visible mold is just the beginning. The moisture source must be identified, as it's the root cause of your mold problems. If the moisture source isn't tackled, your mold issue will continue. The source could be a leaking, cracked, or broken pipe, a bad seal, an improperly connected hose to your refrigerator, washing machine, coffee maker, or ice maker, your irrigation system, air conditioning unit, or numerous other sources. Mold can also arise from flooding, rain, snow, ice, and other natural phenomena. Best Option Restoration of Butler Warren Clermont County's first step is to locate the source or sources.
After the source or sources are identified, we locate all areas affected by mold growth and/or water damage. To completely mitigate the mold issue, all impacted areas must be removed and correctly disposed of, or thoroughly cleaned with industrial-grade products approved by the AIHA, CDC, and EPA.
