Mold Removal in Your Margate Home – Don't Put It Off

Statistics show that for many homes in Margate, mold removal will become a very real concern. Margate homeowners shouldn't feel like they are being picked on, their neighboring communities are just as likely to be visited by a mold colony simply because…we live in South Florida.

Florida's hot and humid climate is a perfect environment for mold and there are literally thousands of species that call the Sunshine state home. Mold spores float on the air, cover the ground and bushes and have no problem hitching a ride into your home via your clothes, shoes or even your pets.

Normally these spores are controlled through regular cleaning like dusting and vacuuming but there are times when conditions are ripe that they can gather and form a colony. Spores need heat (above 740), nutrients and moisture to form mold. They will always have enough heat inside your home, they eat almost everything including leather, fabrics, wallboard and wood so they have plenty of food what's missing normally is moisture.

There are however, dozens of places in your home that could provide the conditions that allow mold the moisture they need. Leaky pipes, leaky bathtubs, overflowing condensation trays in air conditioning units, leaky appliances or small leaks in your roof can all provide concealed sources of water.

Mold Removal Can't Wait

Unless you routinely check those sources of water you will probably not discover mold until you smell it or someone in the family comes down with allergy symptoms or respiratory difficulty. Mold can be a serious health risk and should be removed as soon as you find it.

Once you locate the mold don't assume that the mold you see is all the mold there is. That mold you see at the base of a wall may be just a small part of the much larger mold colony on the other side of the wall.

If you are going to try to remove the mold yourself be sure to read the EPA guidelines first and take all precautions.

There is of course another way to ensure complete mold removal and that's to call on a professional like All Florida. We are available 24/7 and will do a thorough inspection of your home, locate all the mold and then remove it. In some cases the only way to get rid of the mold is to remove the surface it's on like a wall or ceiling. If that's the case All Florida Restoration experts can restore the space to its original condition.
