Clearing Water Damage Essential in Mold Remediation

Address Water Damage and Mold Sources Immediately in Mold Infestations

LOS ANGELES, CA: Water damage has been linked to Los Angeles mold growth in many studies and Building Cleaning Services, (http://buildingcleaningservices.net/) a respected Los Angeles mold remediation and building cleaning company warns building owners to be on the watch for indoor water damage and mold growth. Fast action can avert the health effects of mold.

In 2011, the California Department of Public Health released the following statement on indoor mold: “CDPH has concluded that the presence of water damage, dampness, visible mold, or mold odor in schools, workplaces, residences, and other indoor environments is unhealthy. We recommend against measuring indoor microorganisms or using the presence of specific microorganisms to determine the level of health hazard or the need for urgent remediation. Rather, we strongly recommend addressing water damage, dampness, visible mold, and mold odor by (a) identification and correction of the source of water that may allow microbial growth or contribute to other problems, (b) the rapid drying or removal of damp materials, and (c) the cleaning or removal of mold and moldy materials, as rapidly and safely as possible, to protect the health and well-being of building occupants, especially children.”

One of Building Cleaning Services clients from Newport Beach stated: “We used a separate inspection company who referred us to BCS, among other mold remediation services. We got quotes from three remediation services and BCS was by far more thorough and helpful. We had mold in the kitchen and bathroom and the original inspection company provided suggestions for remediation. When Sheldon came by to give us an estimate he actually helped save us some money by suggesting some less costly (but equally effective) alternatives for remediation. BCS’s crew came in and took care of the mold and passed the post-remediation inspection with flying colors. We would definitely use BCS if we have mold problems again.”
