My landlord or builder will not take any responsibility for cleaning up the mold in my home. Where can I go for help?

If you feel your property owner, landlord, or builder has not been responsive to concerns you’ve expressed regarding mold exposure, you can contact your local board of health or housing authority. Applicable codes, insurance, inspection, legal, and similar issues about mold generally fall under state and local (not federal) jurisdiction. You could also review your lease or building contract and contact local or state government authorities, your insurance company, or an attorney to learn more about local codes and regulations and your legal rights.

Mold Prevention Tips From the CDC!

by Scott Danci on April 11, 2018 , Comments Off on Mold Prevention Tips From the CDC!
  • Keep humidity levels as low as you can—no higher than 50%–all day long. An air conditioner or dehumidifier will help you keep the level low. Bear in mind that humidity levels change over the course of a day with changes in the moisture in the air and the air temperature, so you will need to check the humidity levels more than once a day.
  • Be sure your home has enough ventilation. Use exhaust fans which vent outside your home in the kitchen and bathroom. Make sure your clothes dryer vents outside your home.
  • Fix any leaks in your home’s roof, walls, or plumbing so mold does not have moisture to grow.
  • Clean up and dry out your home thoroughly and quickly (within 24–48 hours) after flooding.
  • Add mold inhibitors to paints before painting.
  • Clean bathrooms with mold-killing products.
  • Remove or replace carpets and upholstery that have been soaked and cannot be dried promptly. Consider not using carpet in rooms or areas like bathrooms or basements that may have a lot of moisture.

Pesky little pests

by Scott Danci on April 4, 2018 , Comments Off on Pesky little pests

Pests (and their droppings)

Moisture in the crawl space is a magnet for spiders, mice, rats, snakes, termites and other nasty pests. Because the crawl space is usually left undisturbed, this provides a safe haven for critters looking for a cozy home. What’s more, much like our kids, critters don’t usually clean up after themselves. Pathogens from rodent droppings ad urine can affect the air quality inside your home.

Call today to schedule your appointment.

Fact or Fiction

Closed Crawl Space Vents

In the past, it was believed that homeowners should, “let their crawl space breathe.” Come to find out, this was way off the mark. A crucial step to preventing moisture and condensation in your crawl space is closing and sealing off your crawl space vents. If your vents are open, the outside air will enter your crawl space and cause moisture problems. Furthermore, mold and mildew could begin to form and pests could find their way in.

A crawlspace repair is not a DIY project

by Scott Danci on April 4, 2018 , Comments Off on A crawlspace repair is not a DIY project

Crawl Space Repair is NOT a “Do It Yourself” Project

Some homeowners try the “DIY” strategy when it comes to crawl space encapsulation or repair. However, this could end up costing you more in the future, while creating even bigger problems for your crawl space. It’s important to have a professional inspect your crawl space and provide the proper repairs. Professionals don’t just fix the problem; we fix the cause of the problem as well, so it doesn’t happen again.

Call us today to schedule your appointment.
