Mold Removal Specialist Company Warns Public On Dangers of Mold Removal

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS), a Los Angeles mold removal and construction cleaning business, issued a public announcement about do-it-yourself mold removal. The company has many years of experience in mold removal and urges anyone with a mold problem to first seek advice from licensed professional. BCS said significant mold usually requires professional removal.

The California Department of Health (CDPH) released a paper where they stated the following about the risk of mold in a home: ?If indoor mold contamination is extensive, it can lead to very high and persistent exposures to airborne spores. Persons exposed to high spore levels can become sensitized and develop allergies to the mold or they may develop other health problems. Mold growth also can damage your furnishings, such as carpets, chairs and sofas, and cabinets. Clothes and shoes in damp closets can become soiled and start to fall apart. Unchecked, mold growth can seriously damage the structural elements in your home, for example, floors, walls, and ceilings.?

Further, CDPH said: ?During the cleaning process, you may be exposed to mold, strong detergents, and disinfectants. Spore counts may be 10 to 1000 times higher than background levels when mold-contaminated materials are disturbed. If this activity bothered you, consider hiring a licensed contractor or other experienced professional to carry out the work.?

Building Cleaning Services specializes in rapid mold remediation for all Los Angeles mold situations. The company stresses that mold remediation must be thorough and systematic, leaving the area mold to better safeguard the building?s occupants. An independent testing company tests the area after remediation is complete.

This is what one of BCS clients had to say about their mold remediation experience: ?Having to deal with mold and water damage is a real downer — but BCS got me through the mess about as well as could be imagined. I chose BCS over another remediation contractor, even though the BCS estimate was somewhat higher, because BCS looked like they were ?on the ball? and motivated to do a great job. In particular, compared to the other contractor, I noticed that BCS took more time in checking out my place, and in explaining to me what they were thinking. Then, they rewarded my confidence by actually doing a great job. Best of all: in my case, their remediation work was so effective, there was no remaining trace of mold that could be detected when the post-remediation testing was done. As I understand it, it’s rare and unnecessary to have a zero reading in order for the remediation to be considered adequate, but they managed to deliver a zero reading for me and you can’t get better than that. I would use them again.?
