Got Mold?

Microscopic mold spores are everywhere—indoors and out. And when excessive moisture accumulates in a building or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. Surprisingly, mold can spread throughout a building in as little as 2-3 days.

Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. According to the Center for Disease Control, recent studies have suggested a potential link of early mold exposure to development of asthma in some children, particularly among children who may be genetically susceptible to asthma development.

We Can Help

Mold growth, which often looks like spots, can be many different colors, and usually smells musty.  If you can see or smell mold, a health risk may be present, and no matter what type of mold is present, you should remove it. Or, you may suspect hidden mold, but you cannot see or smell the source. If you believe that you may have a hidden mold problem, consider hiring an experienced professional.

Mold may be hidden all sorts of places in your home such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top side of ceiling tiles, the underside of carpets and pads, around pipes that may be leaking, on walls behind furniture, inside ductwork, or in roofing materials above your ceiling.

If you address a mold problem without removing the source of moisture, the mold will simply reappear. Weatherseal specializes in finding the root cause of the moisture causing the mold, and addressing that problem. Whether your home needs basement or crawl space encapsulation, a sump pump or dehumidifier, or new gutters or drainage improvements—we can fix it.  We also specialize in mold remediation, so that you and your family can return to feeling safe and healthy in your home.
