Mold remediation: when to call an expert in Alpharetta, GA
About Mold Remediation Alpharetta Georgia
It is frustrating to realize that you have mold in your Alpharetta home. You may feel ill, notice that your wallpaper is peeling or your home may smell damp and earthy. Mold removal can be tough to do on your own because the largest part of the problem is often hidden. You may be tempted to do it yourself but there are times when you should call a professional for an air and mold test.
Physical symptoms are one of the first signs of a hidden mold problem. Many of these issues mimic asthma or the average cold. A runny nose, sneezing, coughing, sore throat, sore eyes and trouble breathing are all signs that mold could be affecting your health. Microban Disinfectant Spray is a safe and effective treatment professionals use to eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and more.
How to detect Mold in Alpharetta ?
A leak is often the spot where a mold problem begins, but if it is behind a wall or under a floor you may not know it. You may have a leaky pipe or water may come in from a crack in the wall or the roof. In a moist area, mold begins to grow in about 24 to 48 hours and only gets worse from there, requiring an expert eye to track it down.
If the mold is deep in your walls and has been there for a long time, your home will show the effects. Walls, flooring, fabric and furniture all begin to discolor. If your wallpaper is turning orange, that means mold is growing behind it. Wallpaper, paint, laminate and linoleum flooring and counter tops begin to peel. Doors and drawers become difficult to open and close. Schedule an air and mold test to determine the extent of the problem.
Mold inside your HVAC and Air Ducts in Alpharetta
If you suspect you have mold in your HVAC and air duct system, it may be hard to clean it yourself. Warm moist air encourages mold to grow and if it has been in your HVAC system longer than you realize it may be hard to remove. You may be able to see or smell signs of mold around your ducts, but physical symptoms such as coughing, sneezing or rashes are more prominent. Regularly inspect your system for leaks and call us for an evaluation.
