Mold can be present even if you can’t visually see it growing, and having a complete mold inspection is necessary to help prevent possible damage to your Whittier, CA property, but more importantly to your health and well-being.
Whittier, California is located in Los Angeles County and was once the home of the last Mexican governor of the state, Pio Pico. Back in the early 1800s, the Mexican-American War was taking place and Pio Pico was the owner of majority of Whittier. The city was given its name after a Quaker poet, John Greenleaf Whittier. The town folk dedicated the city and a lot of land to his name and he even wrote a dedication poem, which can be found on the statues within the Whittier museum. In this time, the Quaker faith was prominent in this region, which is likely why the successful fruit shipping business was labeled with a Quaker Brand. The business sold citrus fruits to people all over the United States. Later, walnut trees were grown and sold by the Quaker Brand, making it the largest producer of walnuts in America.
Those who live in Whittier, California typically witness warm weather throughout the year and about 14 inches of rain annually. This environment is ideal for the likes of mold. When a property has water leaks that go unfixed, the property can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. This can lead to health problems, which tend to be more evident in children, the elderly and anyone who has asthma or respiratory illnesses.
Mold is a common problem that usually goes unnoticed for a very long time. By the time it is detected, it may have spread to many areas of the residence or business. Once it spreads to living or working areas, it can be detrimental to the health of those who live or work there. Mold develops in damp, dark places, which is why it’s essential to regularly check for leaks in roofs, walls and ceilings. Water damage caused by plumbing leaks can also result to extensive mold growth, if it isn’t addressed properly and quickly.
