Mold may be a naturally occurring organism, but that doesn’t mean it’s welcome in your home or office. After all, rain and spiders are natural, and we don’t want them in our living quarters either, do we? Rely on Twin Cities Clean Air to eradicate any mold or mildew growing in your home or office, and restore them to livability.
Houses and office buildings are constructed better than ever before. They’re more airtight, so less energy is wasted. But once an unwanted substance gets inside — radon or mold spores — it doesn’t so easily get out again the way it did in the old days.
This is causing concentrations in buildings of harmful substances that end up making people sick. Mold can cause itchy, watery eyes, rashes, headaches, runny noses, coughs, congestion and all manner of upper respiratory symptoms. You may think you just have a cold or flu, but when these symptoms linger for weeks and months, it’s time to find out why.
Mold needs two things to grow: dampness and darkness. Sunlight kills mold. That’s why it’s so frequently found in areas such as cellars, basements and bathrooms. These areas tend to have poor ventilation and low light.
Subterranean levels are inherently moister. You may be able to clean up the mold in these areas and install a better ventilation system, or add a dehumidifier or some DampRid. But some mold problems are bigger and more pervasive. That’s when you need the experts at Twin Cities Clean Air.
We test the surfaces — and the air — in your home for the presence of mold. Did you know that not all mold is visible? And even when it is, it may not be recognizable as mold. You could be living with mold spores in your home right now and not even know it.
But if your home has suffered a leak, you may know you have mold problems. Any area that remains wet for 48 hours is susceptible to mold growth.
When we find a home or office building with mold in it, the first thing we do is remove the items and building materials that are so infested that they cannot be saved. Next, we clean what remains with a special oxidizing cleaner that kills the mold without irritating your lungs or eyes.
The last thing we do is talk with you about the source of the mold, and how to keep this harmful substance at bay in the future.
