If you recently had water damage to your home, due to a roof leak, plumbing leak or other source, it’s always a good idea to have a mold inspection performed just in case – even if you feel you thoroughly cleaned up the mess.
Concord, California is the biggest city in Contra Costa County. It was founded in 1869, when it was first known as Todos Santos, which means All Saints in Spanish. Back then the land was filled with, not only the infamous Concord grape, but other produce like walnuts, wheat, tomatoes and even hay. Neighboring cities you’ll find next to Concord include Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento and San Jose. In the heart of downtown, you’ll find Todos Santos Plaza, where farmers markets, free concerts and restaurants.
Surrounding this epicenter are neighborhoods that have been redeveloped into condominiums and high-density apartments. Then to the north and east of downtown are areas of Concord that are considered more “classic”. Here, you’ll find older homes, some dating back to World War II. In this city, residents see lots of sunshine throughout the year, but they also get their share of rain – 18 inches per year on average. Given the amount of residences that are in Concord and the weather patterns, one could imagine the amount of mold cases that could spring up throughout the year.
Mold growth can and do occur in many types of properties in Concord. This is why it’s imperative to have mold inspections performed on your home or business regularly.

During a mold inspection, our licensed experts will take samples from the air and surface areas of your property.

The dangers of mold are oftentimes downplayed by the general population. It’s not until it’s nearly too late when some people take action to eradicate the problem. Health problems can be caused when exposed to mold for long lengths of time, such as weeks or months. This could include throat irritations, coughing, sneezing and skin rashes. Those who are asthmatic may notice sensitivities that cause wheezing and tightness in the chest. The elderly and small children are at special risk of health issues caused by mold.
When mold isn’t remediated right away, it can quickly become a bigger problem. The mold spores that it reproduces flows through the air of your home each time wind or your ventilation system blows it, spreading the problem throughout your property. When this happens, you have a mold infestation that is widespread.. To avoid this, it’s best to have a mold inspection performed to determine if and where mold is manifesting itself.
