Water can invite damages into your home that can compromise the health of everyone in your household. Shortly after a flood or plumbing disaster, you and others in your family may begin to suffer symptoms like coughing, wheezing, skin rashes, and wheezing.
These symptoms may be the result of fungus growing in your house because of water damages. You can ease these symptoms and get rid of any fungus growing in your home by hiring a professional mold remediation service.
Finding Out Where It Grows
When you hire a mold remediation company to inspect and treat your house, you can find out quickly where the mold is growing in it. You may not know for sure where this dangerous fungus has taken root. All that you know is that you and your family members suffer symptoms that are linked to black mold growth.
Instead of trying to find it in your home, you can hire mold remediation contractors to find out where the infestation has taken root for you. The contractors can look in dark corners in the basement, on the walls in your crawlspace, and on the outside of your foundation. Once they find the mold, the mold remediation contractors can formulate a plan to get rid of it quickly.
Treating Dangerous Mold
The mold remediation contractors also know how to treat dangerous fungal growth that can pose a serious risk to your health. If you were to try to get rid of it on your own, you might come into contact with spores that can get on your skin, in your eyes, and inside of your sinuses and mouth. You might develop painful rashes and swelling or potentially even deadly fungal pneumonia.
However, the mold remediation contractors take precautions by wearing gloves, hazmat suits, and respirator masks. They also prevent spores from spreading around your house and growing more mold. They use chemicals like bleach and ammonia to kill spores, loosen fungal colonies and make removing the mold easier and safe.
Finally, mold remediation contractors can send the billing for their services to your homeowners insurance company. They can find out if your policy covers their services and send billing for their work to your insurer directly.
