San Francisco Mold Inspection

When it comes to mold contamination in a home or property, IR Environmental should be your first choice, as we are a certified mold inspection company offering services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Everyone who live in the Bay knows how much humidity there is in the air. Because of this constant moisture coming in from the ocean, it makes the area a breeding ground for water intrusion and mold problems.

The main ingredient needed for mold is moisture, something that San Francisco knows a lot about.

With much usual overcast and foggy climate, it only takes a little bit of an opening for moisture to begin growing mold in your home.

Our certified inspectors cover the entire Bay Area to make sure we handle all of your needs big and small. Even small apartments can have a big mold contamination problem.

If you feel like you may have a mold problem, it is best to call to have a certified inspection done for your property to find out for sure. In the meantime, making sure that moisture stops is key to limiting how your home may be affected.

1. Checking the exterior of your home or apartment is always a good first step, to check and see if there are any openings in the siding or spots where moisture can enter the home.

2. Do your best to dry moist areas as much as possible. Running the heat and setting up fans are two ways to increase the rate of evaporation.

3. If you do find leaks, take the time to patch it up as best you can–if at all possible–and immediately call us to book an inspection. Let us know about what you found so our inspector will know where to start..

All of our inspectors go through a thorough certification process so that they can come to your home and give you all the help they can. When they arrive they will inspect the entire property and begin sampling the areas of concern for air contamination, and will also conduct direct surface sampling and moisture readings.

The samples the inspector collects will be sent to a third party lab to be analyzed, and the results will be sent back to you with a full report detailing out the findings.

My thanks go out to Adam in Berkeley, he was so great to us when he came out.

Thanks a ton, Adam!

San Francisco Mold Inspection and Remediation

 

San Francisco Mold in the News

 

Balcony in fatal Berkeley collapse had severe dry rot, report finds” – CNN, June 23, 2015

City inspectors investigating the infamous residential balcony collapse in Berkeley that killed 6 students have reported on the cause of the fatal collapse. In the memo they issued, inspectors found that the ends of the joists supporting the balcony decking were extensively rotted. The balcony’s outer beams also exhibited extensive decay caused by water damage and mold growth. Part of the reason for the extensive investigation is that the apartment building where the collapse occurred is less than 10 years old.

Treasure Island Mold Monster” – SF Bay View, June 8, 2014.

Mold has become a serious issue for many Treasure Island residents. One resident in particular grappled with black mold in his home, in addition to mold with other colorations such as green and white. After a mold remediation specialist removed part of his wall, the contractor decided the process was too much hassle and gave up on the clean-up process. He instead relocated the resident to a unit across from his current one, where he continued to have a similar mold infestation. The case is common in Treasure Island, where residents report many incidences with moldy structures.
