Richmond, CA is located in Contra Costa County, east of San Francisco Bay. Other neighboring cities include El Cerrito, Pinole, San Pablo and Albany. The first inhabitants of this city were the Ohlone Indians, who settled in the Richmond area about 5,000 years ago. This is a waterfront town, with 32 miles of ocean views. Because of this it has Brook Island, the Brother Islands and half of Red Rock Island bordering it.
The climate in Richmond is a very mild Mediterranean, being slightly warmer than coastal areas in Marin County, but more temperate in areas further inland. Rain season here is between October and April, delivering between 3.3 and 4.91 inches monthly. It’s not surprising that during this time of year, property owners tend to see mold growth in their properties.
Mold is a fungus that likes moisture, darkness and cellulose-based materials. When you have an area of your home that is dark and damp, due to a leak or humidity, it makes the ideal environment for mold to grow. It only takes two days for mold to begin forming, so if you’ve had a roof leak during rainy season that lasts for a couple of months, then the probability of mold is high. In this case, it could even spread throughout your attic and may even be behind your walls. When you suspect mold growth, it’s advised that you contact a licensed mold removal specialist to perform mold testing and necessary remediation.

It’s true that mold can lead to health problems in children, elderly, people with respiratory problems and even healthy adults. When it’s allowed to remain in a property for too long, symptoms like skin rashes, sneezing, coughing and throat irritations could occur.
We perform a five-step mold removal procedure that is comprehensive. These mold removal steps include the following:
Step One: A HEPA filtration system is installed in your home to purify the air of spores, dust and allergens. Areas that have been found to be contaminated with mold will be restrained to prevent the spread of contamination. The removal of moldy materials will also be done at this time.
Step Two: The areas of your home that have large areas of mold will have biocide applied to them to stop further spreading and growth.
Step Three: The areas that have small mold growth will have anti-fungal containers used to eradicate the mold. At this step, thorough mold decontamination will be performed.
Step Four: All studs, wall boards and other areas with cracks will have fungal encapsulate applied to prevent mold growth.
Step Five: A final decontamination will be done to ensure that mold removal has been completed.
After having samples retaken and sent to a trusted third-party laboratory to confirm the mold remediation was successful, you will receive a 10 year warranty and a Certificate of Clearance.
