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.
