Mold Inspection and Mold Removal in Pompano

Does your Pompano home or business have mold? If it does, or you suspect it does, now is the time to get rid of it. Mold in Florida is a common problem and that problem can result in some nasty and expensive side effects.

First there is the health problem. The CDC lists these symptoms as typical of exposure to mold or mold spores:

  • nasal stuffiness
  • eye irritation
  • wheezing
  • skin irritation
  • asthma symptoms in people with asthma
  • hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition
  • respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children

Obviously you want to protect your family from these potentially serious health issues but if you are a business owner you also want to protect your employees to avoid workman compensation claims and OSHA violations. In short, if you know or suspect your Pompano business has mold you need to take action now to correct the situation.

So how do you do that?

Find It Fix It

If you suspect you have mold it is likely that the area in question either has plumbing present or was subject to a water leak or flooding. Under normal conditions your home offers everything mold needs to grow EXCEPT moisture. Without water mold simply will not form.

You can conduct a mold inspection yourself or you can eliminate the uncertainty and the hazard of removing the mold, finding and fixing the source of the water and replacing/repairing damaged materials by calling a mold removal specialist like All Florida Restoration.

When mold is discovered it is important that it not be disturbed until you have taken precautions to contain it when you remove it. Stirring up mold causes spores to become airborne which in turn will land somewhere else and begin a new colony.

Obviously if your Pompano home has suffered a flood from failed appliances or burst pipes you are going to need professionals to remove the water, dry out the area and remove or mitigate any mold that might have formed. Water damage is usually covered by insurance and if the damage is extensive, you might consider remodeling rather than simply replacing. All Florida Restoration are experts not only in mold removal but also in design and construction of remodeling projects.
