Mold spores can cause a large array of problems when inhaled including minor breathing problems to severe respiratory issues. People with a compromised immune system, asthma, or other respiratory ailments are at the highest risk.
Located beside the Santa Ana River about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, the historic town of Riverside hosts a populace of 303,871, according to the 2010 US Census. Currently the 12th most populated city in California and the 59th in the country, Riverside has come a long way since its humble beginnings.
Founded in the 1870s by a Tennessee abolitionist named John W. North – who also founded Northfield, Minnesota – it would quickly become renowned for its orange trees. In 1871, the first trees were planted. However, it would be three years before the area became famous for its oranges after a local resident, Eliza Tibbets received a gift from a horticulturist at the United States Department of Agriculture.
Mold Inspection for Riverside, CA Residents
As the city prospered and grew, many different structures were built including homes, office buildings, industrial buildings, and many other types of facilities. Today, Riverside has a mixture of older and newer structures; all of these have a common enemy – mold. Left uncontrolled, mold can cause severe damage to the wood, sheet rock, and other building components. However, the worse affliction that can come from mold targets people.
Mold loves moisture. Moisture within the home or workplace is often unknown to the occupants and may remain hidden for years while causing adverse reactions to those inside the building. Typically, if you see mold growing somewhere, it is likely it is also thriving unseen elsewhere in the structure.
Common causes of moisture and mold growth are leaking pipes, roof leaks, moisture infiltrating poorly sealed window frames, and flooding events. While flooding events are obvious and should be cleaned and more importantly completely dried, it is the unseen mold growth that poses the greatest risk to health and property.
When mold contamination is suspected it is important to handle the situation appropriately to eliminate the probability of creating a worse problem. Since mold spores become airborne, special equipment is often needed to sample and clean the air. It is important that mold testing and decontamination are done by professionals to ensure a safe and thorough job is accomplished. The best way to make certain the project is completed right is to contact Indoor-Restore. Our professionally certified mold inspection specialists will make sure the air is mold free.
