Why Mold Damage in Roseville Homes May Be Hazardous

SERVPRO Is the Answer to Grappling with Mold Infestations in Roseville

SERVPRO Can Safely and Efficiently Remediate Mold Damage in Your Home

At SERVPRO, we are committed not just to eradicating mold damage, but also to educating homeowners about why it happens. We believe that knowledge is key to preventing new problems from developing in the future, so getting to grips with the basics is important.

You should know, for example, not just that mold damage in Roseville homes can be harmful, but also what the physical symptoms are. That way, you can identify sources of trouble quickly and seek the right kind of assistance. We want to stress that, while mold damage can compromise physical health, a calm and measured response is always best.

This guide to some of the potential effects of persistent mold will explain why it needs to be tackled safely, by professional remediation experts.

Why a Speedy Response Is Important
As soon as you suspect that you have mold damage in your home, you need to call the removal experts at SERVPRO. You may not develop any visible symptoms, as a result of contact with an affected area, but it is still important that you steer well clear of it. Mold, particularly in very damp conditions, may cause health effects.

If there are very young or elderly occupants in the house, you are advised to leave after you have arranged for SERVPRO to carry out an inspection. Infants, the elderly, and those with existing medical conditions are at a significantly greater risk of the potentially negative effects of an infestation.  At the very least, you need to stay away from the affected room or area to help prevent the spores from spreading. Few mold species are a threat to our health, but be safe and avoid exposure when possible.

Some Common Physical Symptoms
Ordinarily, the physical reactions to mold are either nothing or quite mild but still unpleasant. Once again, this is why remediation should be carried out quickly. Symptoms may develop, but are they from the mold or an allergen in the air? SERVPRO technicians have training in best practices of the IICRC to deal with mold issues, primarily to the structure and contents of a home.

SERVPRO of Citrus Heights/Roseville is a local company so that we can arrange a same day inspection over the phone. Call us 24/7 at (916) 966-2601.
