Mold Remediation in Pennsylvania

mold remediation philadelphiaWe are sure you have heard all the fear around mold and the challenges to completely remediate it. At Value Dry, we want you to know that with a little education and some help from us this doesn’t need to be something to worry about.

When will you need to remediate mold presence in your home?

  • Presence of Moisture or Humidity
  • Recent Water Intrusion from Storms
  • Smell a Musty Odor
  • Adverse Health Effects (Illness or Environmental Hazards)

Often times where mold is concerned, finding the water source and working out how to stop it before it spreads is the right first step to follow. This may include basement waterproofing or foundation repairs in Pennsylvania if the water is coming through cracks, or even considering getting your crawl space encapsulation in Pennsylvania redone.

But it may also be as simple as moving your sprinkler system to a new location or rearranging where downspouts end. Make sure the people you speak with about mold know enough about your water drainage issues to make the right decision regarding removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes that typical basement smell?

The musty smell is often mold that is blooming and starting to spread. Mold is always present in the air and is just looking for a source of moisture. If there is any humidity or water in your basement this allows it to thrive and as it grows the smell is created.

Is all mold dangerous?

No, only a few types are really toxic but all mold in high concentrations can cause issues with allergies, breathing, headaches etc. Because of modern building practices, homes now are built tightly sealed with little to air circulation to the outside. This tightness when combined with moisture allows for a buildup of mold and allergens that can be harmful. This is what the EPA and Board of Health term as “sick building syndrome”.

I have been told that all I need to do when I see mold is check if it is black mold and if so then simply bleach it. Is that true?

The color of mold does not determine whether it is toxic. Many types of mold are black while only a few types are toxic. The number of spores, their impact on you and whether the mold is actively growing is more important than color. Bleach can be effective on removing mold from nonporous substances such as tile counter-tops but it actually leaves behind water which promotes future mold growth on porous items like wood, drywall etc.

Why do we normally suggest the air sample test?

In many cases when a person calls us they might not actually need remediation. Mold exists everywhere. It is the amount and type that are present in your home versus what is normally found outside your home that matters. The outdoor air sample test is conducted to get a control and comparative sample. The indoor test will be conducted around the location of your concern. These are compared at the lab for corresponding concern around issues. If someone only takes a sample at the location of your concern it’s easy to show large numbers of some naturally occurring mold spores that do not need remediation. Know whether you need remediation by testing correctly.
