Mold Removal

While water remains the most widespread and costly problem that most property owners will have to face, one of the most common results of damage is mold infestation. According to statistics, over 98% of all property owners will have to deal with water in some form, and whenever there has been damage from water, mold is usually not far behind. It takes less than 48 hours from initial saturation of an area for mold and mildew to begin to form, and once it begins to grow it can be notoriously difficult to get rid of. It pays to be prepared. VIP Restoration is the leading authority on water and mold removal in your area. If water is not dealt with quickly, you can find yourself facing a myriad of other related problems—mold being first among them!

Mold colonies form in areas where there is an excess of humidity. Whenever the humidity of an area reaches 45% or higher, there is a potential for mold colonization. Pockets of high humidity can be formed in a number of ways. The most obvious way that pockets of moisture are formed is through flooding, whether it is caused by burst pipes or outside sources, a flood can spell disaster for any home or business. If flood waters are not dried out by a professionally certified damage restoration team, normal processes of evaporation may cause airborne moisture to become trapped in areas that are difficult to reach and treat. When water gets between the walls, into crawlspaces and attics, or below the floorboards, those moist areas can linger on for a long time after the obviously affected areas are already dry. Another cause of moisture can be the temperature differential between the air outside and the climate-controlled air on the inside of the building. This differential can cause condensation to build up on the inside of your walls, again creating a humid environment that is conducive to mold colonization. Other common problems include small leaks, improperly sealed fixtures, cracks in the foundation, and appliance-related moisture. When so many different things can go wrong—both singly and in combination—it can be difficult to identify the problem right away, but wasting time trying to figure it out without professional assistance can be a mistake.

When mold infests your home or office, there can be a multitude of health issues that arise as a result. Children, the elderly, and pets are all particularly susceptible to the dangers of mold infestation, as are those with allergies and asthma. Symptoms of mold exposure include headaches, nausea, difficulty breathing, congestion, allergy and asthma attacks, itchy watery eyes, and flu-like symptoms. Some species of mold can even cause permanent health problems. The best way to deal with a mold problem is to avoid having one in the first place! If your home or business has suffered from damage, call the professional team at VIP Restoration before mold has a chance to set in.

At VIP Restoration, we know that safety is an important issue.
