Mold In NYC

NYC Mold

Mold in NYC  over the past 5 years has been rapidly becoming a hot topic. This is due to the irregular weather patterns, hurricanes, and flooding that have been hitting the area. These conditions have been a direct contributing factor to larger amounts of not only higher amounts of mold, but more so the mold cases and complaints being filed as there are thousands of people throughout the city that  are getting sick from mold and are in need of dire assistance. With Spring just around the corner, time will tell  if mold in NYC will become an even greater concern than the previous season.

So, What is Mold?

In a nutshell, mold is a type of common fungi found growing every where in the natural environment. It can grow on any surface that is moist like the concrete, wood, carpet, plastic etc. All mold needs to grow is a moist surface with poor ventilation and high humidity levels and some surrounding organic material. Mold multiplies through its “seeds” called mold spores. Spores move and spread as a form of reproduction. Spores are present everywhere in the air. When they land on a moist surface, they can start to grow almost immediately. It takes only 24-48 hours for the mold to take a hold and start thriving.

If you find old growing in your home, then you should understand that there is definitely some plumbing work that needs attention. A leaky pipe or water damage in the wall will cause constant moisture in the surface. This leads to mold growth. To avoid the mold and to control the mold, the moisture problem has to be fixed. Once the problem is fixed, mold can be cleaned.

How Mold Affects Your Health

mold health symptoms

The presence of mold in the house can cause allergies and irritation to the people exposed to it. If the people are sensitive, then the symptoms may cause severe health problems. Some of the normal symptoms are the runny one, headaches, cough, and irritation in eyes, throat or skin. Mold can be either toxic or non toxic. If the mold is non toxic, then it releases allergens and irritants that cause few symptoms in the people who come in contact with mold. But the toxic mold produces mycotoxins that are very dangerous for human life. The toxic mold can cause severe health problems like the respiratory problems or can cause asthma attacks in the people suffering from asthma. The growth of mold is especially not good for the health of infants and elderly people living in the house.

How to remove mold from your home

NYC-mold-inspection-infrared-equipmentThe first step in cleaning mold is to find the source of the moisture in the walls or the floor. Once the problem is fished out, it has to be fixed. If you clean the mold without fixing the moisture problem, the mold will spring back again. If the mold is spread across smaller area which is less the ten square meters, you can handle the cleanup job all by yourself. All you need is few house hold cleaners to get the job done. You need scrub the mold with bleach or other detergents and try not to come in contact with it. Once cleaned, you need to pat the area to dry completely. If the infested area is larger than ten square meters, then you need to hire a professional contractor to clean the infested area. They will first fix the moisture problem and then kill the mold from roots. Then they will clean the area and dispose of all the mold contaminated materials before sealing off the entire work area(s).

How to choose a Qualified Mold Expert in NYC

When you are hiring a contractor to clean the mold in your house, make sure that mold removal company in NYC   is licensed and certified to carry out the mold remediation and removal in your area. If they are not licensed, you may not get the job done properly. A licensed company has a team of technicians who are trained and works with the advanced technology tools to eliminate the mold. They protect themselves from the mold by wearing protective masks and suits. Always hire a contractor who has good reputation and go by the earlier customer reviews. A good contractor uses the biocides which are approved by the EPA to kill the mold. And once the cleaning is done the contractor always test the air for any more contamination. The house is clean and fresh after the service by a professional mold remediation company, such as Five Boro Mold Specialist.
