The Environmental Protection Agency reported that mold is one of the top 5 indoor health hazards in the San Francisco area which makes mold removal a serious topic.
This city is the financial and cultural hub of Northern California. It has a rich architectural history dating back to the major rebuild of the city after approximately three quarters of it was destroyed by fire and earthquake in 1906. Home of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island, San Francisco, is a very popular tourist destination. It is a destination city for some people to move who wants to enjoy the warm weather that the city boasts; being located so close to the ocean the Bay Area’s environment contains more moisture than some of the other cities within the state of California.
While the Victorian era homes might draw in new homeowners, the overabundance of moisture from the ocean air and consistent heat from the hot California weather is a recipe for disaster. Moisture, heat and time will often breed mold spores in older homes. Left untreated this becomes toxic in most cases. When the mold spores begin to grow and change additional warm air and closed environments can sometimes create a new growth that contains mycotoxins which are harmful to your health.
How would you know if you have a growing mold problem in your home? Allowing Indoor-Restore Environmental specialists inspect and test your home is a great preventative step towards understanding if you and your family are breathing in high levels of spores or not.

Mold Removal Services in San Francisco, CA
Indoor-Restore’s mold removal professionals are trained in eliminating/removing the toxins as well as repairing leaks that may have been the original problem or sealing off areas that are allowing too much outside moisture into the home. Mold removal involves creating a containment chamber around the work area to prevent mold spores from contaminating other parts of the property. A negative air machine with High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter is used to control the amount of mold spores circulated in the work area. At this point in the mold removal process, contaminated materials are carefully removed to prevent disruption of mold spores to be released in the air, and a biocide is applied to kill any remaining mold spores that might be present. Encapsulation of the wood frame, studs, and other areas of concern is the next phase to prevent future moisture and mold growth issues. And the final step would be to decontaminate the containment chamber by running the HEPA vacumm one last time.
