Long Beach Water Damage and Mold Remediation

Is mold as dangerous as asbestos?

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, it can be if there’s enough build-up and the development of mold spores is allowed to continue. If you live in the vicinity of Ft. Tilden Beach, Jacob Riis Park Beach or the iconic Jones Beach, you know that humidity and condensation are a fact of life. But you don’t have to live beach side to understand consequences of mold following of flooding. If not eradicated, mold build-up isn’t just a pesky problem. It can compromise your family’s health, triggering skin rashes, respiratory diseases, eye sensitivity plus allergies and sensitivities. For people with compromised immune systems, exposure to mold exacerbates health concerns, which is why we take mold-removal jobs seriously, wearing protective gear each time we return the residential or commercial property to a healthy, sanitary state. Are we obsessive? Yes. Because your family’s health depends upon our thoroughness. Want to know more about our certifications and credentials in this area?

  • Is Mildew as bad as mold?

    Confused about the ugly soil that’s accumulated within your window frames or “decorating” your bathroom caulking? You’re not alone. Molds are microscopic fungi that don’t discriminate: they’re as happy to grow on your basement wall as they are to settle into the old loaf of bread you forgot to throw out. It doesn’t help to know that scientists have classified over 1,000 types of mold and mildew in the U.S. alone! Truth is, mildew is a close relative of mold, distinguished only by color: Mildew is white, which is why it can hide in plain sight. Mold colors range from green and blue to black and red, and while you probably don’t want to get up close and personal with either, our mold clean-up experts can differentiate each by smell, which is one of the reasons you need experts, not novices, dealing with your fungus infestations.
