Got Mold? What To Do if you Suspect Mold in Your La Jolla home

Mold in the home is a serious problem. It has been clinically shown that the presence of mold spores, especially black mold, can have an impact on your health. What many people are not aware of is that mold can also damage the structural integrity of the home as well. La Jolla is located in just the perfect kind of climate environment to encourage mold growth. Making sure you monitor your home for mold on a regular basis will be very important to your health and welfare.

Regular visual inspections. Using a flashlight, check your home for the visual presence of mold. You will see it as either small black dots on drywall, green and/or white raised patches, or even a spider web like growth on a surface. Places to look are inside cabinets, where the floors and walls meet and beneath carpets and runners.

Perform a mold test. You can purchase a do-it-yourself home mold test to test the air for the presence of mold spores. These are not as accurate as the testing a mold specialist will do, but they will tell you if there is enough of a concern to call one in.

What to do and when to do it. Should you test positive for mold or find evidence of it, call one of our La Jolla flood damage specialists listed in the blue book immediately. Flood restoration companies and La Jolla plumbing contractors are very familiar with mold and can help. Here is one other tip to prevent mold from setting in; call and have your home inspected after the rainy season and after any heavy storm. A mold specialist can test for the moisture content in the air and make recommendations for placing dehumidifiers to prevent mold from starting.
