Mold in your house is more than creepy – it is hazardous to your health and could be causing damage to your home.
There are just some things we come in contact with that make us shiver or cringe – fingernails on a chalkboard, walking through a cobweb, and one you hope never to experience – mold in your house! At AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we understand being a bit concerned if you find mold because it is widely known that it can cause health problems and even potentially cause structural damage to your home. The good news is that we have the experience to remove the mold in your house, both the mold you see and what is well hidden out of sight.
There is no such thing as an acceptable amount of mold in your house. Even the smallest patch is cause for concern because it indicates that conditions are favorable for the mold colony to exist, and therefore grow larger. When you call on us to assess mold in your house, we’ll address its cause and advise you on what to do to minimize the chance that it will return after we’ve removed what’s there.
You can’t always see mold, so it isn’t a bad idea to call us if you suspect it is lurking somewhere so we can perform air sample testing. Signs that you have hidden mold in your house include breathing issues, watery eyes, rashes, trouble sleeping, odd odors, and increased allergy symptoms. People often attribute these symptoms to other causes, but if nothing else has changed, such as a new pet or new household cleaners that could be irritating, it might be time to have a professional determine if mold is present. Call today to learn more or schedule an appointment to have your Ankeny, Iowa home checked out.
FAQs About How to Deal with Mold in Your House
We at AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central know you care about your home, and we want to help you keep it in great shape. One of the many problems we can help you with is mold, and in this article, we will go over a few of our most frequently asked questions on the topic.
How can I tell if I have mold in my house?
One of the problems with mold is the way it tends to grow in dark, hidden areas, which allows it to go undetected for long periods of time because it’s not in anyone’s direct sight. However, mold will show its presence in other ways—for example, you will likely smell a characteristic musty odor, or you might experience an increase in respiratory symptoms. The best way to determine if there’s mold in your house, however, is to get a professional mold inspection.
What should I do about mold in my house?
If you have mold in your house, you should call our mold removal experts right away to enlist our services. Our team has extensive experience in the mold treatment industry, and you can count on us to eliminate all traces of mold from your home. We will take every precaution to make sure no mold spores escape into other areas to create new problems, and we’ll dispose of all moldy material properly to provide added protection.
Can I get rid of mold myself?
Mold is a problem best left to experienced professionals like those on our team. While it may seem simple enough to just scrub the mold away, attempting to do so without the right preparation or safety gear is a recipe for disaster. Not only will mold spores spread to other parts of your home to create new colonies, but you will also breathe in the spores and suffer negative health consequences for it. Our team has the right training and safety equipment to get the job done right, and we encourage you to let us do so.
