THAT CRAWL SPACE UNDER YOUR HOME COULD BE A PRIME AREA FOR HIDDEN MOLD

Have it inspected before trying to sell your home!

Building Cleaning Services (BCS) frequently hears from people who are trying to sell their home who tell us the buyer’s home inspector found mold in the crawl space and they need it removed.

Some homeowners are not even aware there is a crawl space under the home which can be a source of mold problems. The crawl space is typically an unoccupied, unfinished, narrow space between the ground and the first floor, so named because there is only enough room to crawl rather than stand in that space.

Crawl spaces were initially built to provide a buffer between the house and its inhabitants and the damp, wet earth below. A home that has a crawl space and does not have a vapor barrier tends to wick up moisture onto the subfloor and it can enter the   wood framing under the home creating a potential mold situation.

Many homeowners may never look in the crawl space under their home, but home inspectors are obligated to look there, as they know the potential for mold in that area.  If there has been a leak, for example in the restroom months or years earlier, there is likely a mold problem in the crawl space that has been allowed to grow undisturbed. Crawl spaces are one of the most common areas of mold growth in the home because they have the perfect conditions for mold growth (wooden floors or framing, darkness and dampness).

A crawl space can also be susceptible to flooding, especially for homes on even a small slope. This risk is sometimes mitigated by using rain gutters to conduct rainwater away from the house and sloping the earth away from the house. Obviously, the drier you can keep the crawl space under your home, the better you can protect it from any future mold situation.

 

ENCAPSULATION CAN PREVENT CRAWL SPACE MOLD

Because vapor barriers keep moisture out, they reduce the chances of mold growth in your home. Encapsulating your crawlspace will also improve the value of your home since it reduces moisture issues such as wood rot and mold.

Encapsulation involves sealing off all openings to the outdoors, adding thermal insulation to the walls, and sealing off any remaining gaps and cracks (such as plumbing and wiring penetrations) between the crawl space and the floor of the home. This essentially creates a vapor barrier.

Sometimes encapsulation is used to prevent the passage of air from the crawl space to the living environment, to save energy and improve indoor air quality.  This is because air in the crawl space tends to rise due to the stack effect in winter, when warmer air rises in the upper floors and cooler air comes in from below.

If the crawl space under your home is not encapsulated, it is probably a good thing to look into getting this done, as you can see it has several advantages, the primary one being the prevention of mold growth.

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SUSPECT MOLD

If you suspect mold in your crawl space or elsewhere, the first thing to do is get a professional mold inspection done by a reputable company that will give you a detailed report.

There are numerous mold inspection companies in Los Angeles; however, some are not as reputable as others. Do your due diligence by checking their ratings on Yelp or elsewhere. If you’d like some names of companies that BCS has worked with, give us a call at 818-953-7100.

Once you have your mold report in hand and you need mold removed, give BCS a call to schedule an appointment so we can give you an estimate that you’ll be happy with. Mold is toxic and should be removed whenever it is observed or found. If you have mold, the solution is to call BCS at 818-953-7100.

JUST SOME OF OUR OUTSTANDING MOLD CLIENT REVIEWS

The entire crew from Building Cleaning Services was professional and highly skilled. We were in a very tough situation with the black water intrusion and mold situation in our house but helped to get our home back to normal.  I can sleep better at night knowing that a good job was done in our home. I would highly recommend these folks to anyone. We received several quotes, and some were lower than BCS, but no other company demonstrated the same depth of knowledge and that gave us confidence that they knew what they were doing. – Darryl Y.

I cannot recommend this company enough! My sister-in-law used them a few years ago and referred them to us when we discovered some serious mold issues in our bathroom and bedroom. We also discovered large raccoon droppings in the basement crawl space, and they were able to take care of that without kicking up any dust into the house. Everyone I’ve encountered so far has been very pleasant– Kathy, Geovany, Rosendo, Mr. Hernandez. Exceptional work, very professional, punctual, thorough and reasonably priced.  – Jennifer Y.

After discovering the most gnarly, neon orange, hard mold growing in a closet at our home, I contacted Building Cleaning Services after receiving a referral from our mold inspector. Given the nature of the situation and my complete inexperience with mold issues, I found the office manager Kathy to be extremely helpful and kind in explaining the process of removal. In addition, she and the rest of the team were quick to respond to phone calls or emails. Once we accepted their proposal, things continued to go extremely smoothly. Rosendo and his team were fantastic. I highly recommend Building cleaning services if you ever find yourself in need for mold remediation.          – Alisha B.

CORONAVIRUS: DEEP CLEANING SERVICE AVAILABLE & POLICY

As the situation continues to evolve with the COVID-19, we know that while many are self-quarantining at home, there are also many companies that need to remain open, especially essential industries.  As a janitorial and mold removal company, we are included on the list of essential industries and we have a team of cleaners willing to provide that service where it is necessary.

As we care about our clients and want to keep them safe, we are handling our cleaning duties per the proper protocols as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes such things as gloves, face masks, and hospital-grade disinfectants, sprays and wipes.

With those protections in place, we will continue to clean for our clients with whatever cleaning schedule best meets their needs in these uncertain times. Our mold remediation work also continues as the presence of mold in those with weakened immune systems, can deeply impact their health and should be handled as quickly as possible.

We continue to receive calls daily from clients asking what we are doing to help prevent the spread of infections in the workplace, or asking us to use specific products to disinfect all doorknobs, handrails, doors, countertops, etc.

Our policy for the duration of the Coronavirus threat is based on recommendations from the CDC. As such, our cleaning crews have been notified to:

“DISINFECT ANY CLIENT’S DOORKNOBS, HANDRAILS, COUNTERTOPS, DOORS, DOOR HANDLES, ETC. EACH VISIT.”

And to be in accordance with the CDC that states: “Ensure that cleaning and disinfection procedures are followed consistently and correctly.

“Standard cleaning and disinfection procedures, using cleaners and water to pre-clean surfaces prior to applying an EPA-registered disinfectant to frequently touched surfaces or objects for appropriate contact times as indicated on the product’s label.” – CDC, updated March 7, 2020.  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/summary.html

Building Cleaning Services has printed out the list of EPA-registered disinfectants and provided these to our cleaning crews so that they use  the proper recommended disinfectant wipes and aerosols. This list was issued on March 3, 2020 by the EPA as “EPA’s Registered Antimicrobial Products for Use Against the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.”

https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-03/documents/sars-cov-2-list_03-03-2020.pdf

The EPA-registered site covers disinfectant wipes and sprays and it is recommended that companies also keep these on hand for employees to use.

If you have any further questions, or need any additional cleaning in response to the virus threat, please do not hesitate to call me at 818-953-7100, or email me at alan@buildingcleaningservices.net.

Sincerely,

Alan Eames

WE CAN HANDLE YOUR CLEANING NEEDS!

BCS CAN COVER YOUR SPECIAL & “PICKY” CLEANING NEEDS!

For the last 22 years, Building Cleaning Services, Inc. (BCS) has strived to and taken its janitorial services to another level by providing numerous additional services to its clients throughout Los Angeles.  Because of the reputation that BCS has garnered over the years for its excellent service, what started out as a small business taking care of routine cleaning of fewer than 10 offices has now grown to over 130 clients, some of which have been with us for more than 20 years!

Although most of our janitorial clients are in the entertainment industry (78% in fact), we also clean many other types of businesses, including law offices, chiropractic offices, architectural firms, financial management companies, realtors, manufacturers, PR firms, insurance agencies and more.  BCS clients know that we’ll do the job right, so if they have additional cleaning needs, they come to us first to see if we can provide that service also.  We are all too happy to oblige if we possibly can!

We Clean Entertainment Industry Offices and Production Studios

We have developed very good working relationships with numerous entertainment industry clients over the years.  We provide daily, weekly and other cleaning schedules that are suitable for a wide variety of entertainment industry clientele, including movie producers, recording studios, casting agencies, movie and commercial post-production studios, the gaming industry and many more.  In addition to our regular cleaning, we have also provided expert window cleaning, carpet cleaning, concrete buffing and high dusting for several of these clients.

We Also Clean Other Businesses

As BCS expanded its janitorial services to law offices, architectural firms, financial managers, realtors and more, happy clients started referring other clients to us, so sometimes we have two or three clients in the same building.  In those cases, we also clean the common areas between them on a regular schedule with a budget that works best for the building owner or manager.  Other services BCS has provided these clients include professional cleaning of the floors, including the scrubbing, stripping, sealing, waxing and buffing of vinyl composition tiles, the cleaning and maintaining of linoleum floors and expert carpet and upholstery cleaning.

Then There’s Apartment Buildings and Condo HOAs

Another area that BCS has expanded into is the common-area cleaning of apartment buildings or self-managed Condo HOAs. We provide common-area cleaning services directly for building owners or to those who work through management companies.  In addition to our regular janitorial duties, we have also provided these clients with additional services such as power washing of sidewalks and parking lots and the buffing of floors.

Post-Construction Cleaning

BCS prides itself on the post-construction cleaning service it provides not only for new or remodeled office buildings, but also for recently renovated homes and apartment buildings that have undergone tenant improvements.  What most clients want from post-construction cleaning is getting rid of all the dust, which is usually on every surface after the construction, and that is what BCS does. We frequently get rave reviews about the post-construction cleaning we do!

We Do Move-Out/Move-In Vacancy Cleanings

Another area that BCS has expanded into is helping landlords or management companies with move-out/move-in vacancy cleanings, as there is hardly an apartment or condo which is left in pristine condition when the previous tenant or owner moves out.  Of course, the landlord or management companies want the apartment or condo to look a new as possible for the next person moving in, and that is where BCS comes in to do a deep cleaning which can include extras like pro window and carpet cleaning if necessary.

A summary of additional services to regular janitorial services that BCS provides:

  • Professional Cleaning of Carpets, Area Rugs and Mats
  • Cleaning of Upholstery including Standard Office Chairs, Sofas, Love Seats, Armchairs, Upholstered Cushions and Curtains
  • Professional Window Cleaning, Skylight Cleaning, and Internal Partition Cleaning
  • High Dusting of Office Spaces
  • Power Washing, Degreasing of Walkways, Driveways, Parking Lots, etc.
  • Professional Cleaning of Floors, including the Scrubbing, Stripping, Sealing, Waxing and Buffing of Vinyl Composition Tiles (VCT), Linoleum and Buffing of Concrete
  • Detailing the Inside of Freezers, Refrigerators and Microwaves
  • Detailing the Inside of Kitchen Cupboards and Drawers

OUR RAVE YELP! JANITORIAL REVIEWS

BCS had been cleaning our building for years and consistently had the place looking wonderful. Easy to deal with billing, purchasing new supplies, just an overall stress-free company to work with. Alan and Kathy have provided us exceptional service and always want to make sure we are pleased with our cleanings. If you are looking for a consistent reliable hardworking company, I urge to sign up with Building Cleaning Services, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for your continued great service, much appreciated! – James V.

My company hired BCS when we moved into our new office space in January 2017. From our sales rep Alan, to the quality control guru Peter, to our janitorial team, led by Ignacio, we are pleased with the service we receive. BCS is eager to solve any problems that arise and continually check in to ensure we’re happy. – Tabatha M.

PREVENTING MOLD EXPOSURE CAN KEEP YOU HEALTHY!

BCS HAS TIPS ON WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Mold does not affect everyone, but there are those that are particularly sensitive to it, including infants, pregnant women, the elderly or others who have compromised immune systems. Mold can even result in health issues for pets!

Health professionals have been telling us for years that there are negative health implications to both short-term and long-term exposure to mold. In 2004 the Institute of Medicine found there was enough evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with numerous respiratory conditions. In 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued the “WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampness and Mould,” which suggested a potential link of early mold exposure to development of asthma in some children.

Building Cleaning Services (BCS) would like to give you tips on what health issues to look for that mold exposure may cause or exacerbate.  There are over 100,000 different types of mold, but not all are a health threat. The most feared are toxic black molds, but these are rare, usually occurring only in indoor environments that have been damaged, flooded, or closed for long periods of time.

First you should realize that we are surrounded by mold because the spores are in the air, both indoors and outdoors. It only becomes a problem when it reaches excessive levels where you reside or work. Given the combination of moisture and a food source, mold will grow like mad!  It will grow in places such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding.  Common food sources for mold are ceiling tiles, wallpaper or other paper products, cardboard, and wood products, but it can also grow in insulation, drywall, paints, carpet, fabric and upholstery. It can enter the home through open doorways, windows, vents, heating and air conditioning systems, through the crawl space under the building or even by attaching itself to clothing, shoes, bags, and pets.

 

HEALTH CLUES THAT INDICATE YOU MAY HAVE EXCESSIVE MOLD

Individuals who are sensitive can have an allergic reaction to mold that can occur immediately or appear after weeks or even months of exposure. Common symptoms may include the following:

  • Nasal Congestion & Stuffiness.
  • Throat Irritation.
  • Coughing, Sneezing and Wheezing.
  • Asthma Attacks.
  • Upper Respiratory Infections.
  • Skin Irritation.
  • Eye Irritation.
  • Fever, headaches or nose bleeds.

Obviously, the above symptoms can have other causes, but if those have been looked into and you are at a loss for what is causing one or more of these symptoms, it may be time to see if you have mold in the home or office.

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SUSPECT MOLD

 If you suspect you have a mold issue on your property, either through any of the above symptoms or through sight, smell or the presence of water in your home, you should contact a professional mold inspection company to take air samples to determine if mold is present. They will provide you with a report about what, if any, types and amounts of mold are found. Typically, elevated mold counts only occur in a certain area, not throughout the entire home, so there’s usually limited areas that need to be addressed.

The severity of a problem depends on the comparative air quality of the indoor space compared to the surrounding area, and the severity of a leak or other source of moisture that could be causing the mold. BCS can provide you with the names of several professional mold inspectors who are very dependable, and if you need any mold removed, BCS provides professional remediation. Just give BCS a call at (818) 953-7100.

 

SOME RECENT 5-STAR YELP! REVIEWS ON BCS’S MOLD REMEDIATION

9/26/2018 – “Our company has worked with BCS for the past few years. Kathy, Garrison, and the rest of the team have always been very knowledgeable, attentive and responsive. AND you get very personal service.

“BCS is one of the top companies in their field and we’re able to see based on the quality of their work and the quality of their customer service.

“We mainly deal with BCS as it relates to mold remediation (we do the initial inspections for mold, asbestos, and lead paint – along with the clearances), but I know they provide other services as well. Give them a call and I’m sure they’ll take care of you!” – Tim M., San Clemente

5/28/2019 – “We are a real estate management company. This is the 3rd time we’ve used Building Cleaning Services. Each time the mold remediation job was done thoroughly and promptly. I highly recommend them.” – Frieda A., Los Angeles

9/9/2019 – “I work with a real estate team and we needed mold remediation done in a timely manner. We were super happy with the team and the work they did and got this huge job done in a timely manner.  I would definitely use them again if needed and highly recommend!  Thanks Again!” – Sam D., Los Angeles

GET RID OF THE MOLD!

YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published a report entitled “Mold Prevention Strategies and Possible Health Effects in the Aftermath of Hurricanes and Major Floods” which concluded that “excessive exposure to mold-contaminated materials can cause adverse health effects in susceptible persons regardless of the type of mold or the extent of contamination.”

Thankfully, Southern California rarely gets even remnants of hurricanes, but it does get heavy rains that can cause flash floods, especially in the mountains and foothills, affecting a fair number of homes each year.  Building Cleaning Services, Inc. (BCS) knows from its 20-plus years of experience that you don’t need a flood to develop a mold problem, as given any amount of moisture, mold will grow and reproduce anywhere.

Mold is commonly found in ceiling tiles, on wood floors, behind wallboard, paneling, wallpaper and furniture, around a leaky water heater or from condensation around windows or pipes.

Surprisingly, some people may not even be aware they have mold and symptoms of mold-borne illness. Typical symptoms resemble those of an allergy-like hay fever: a runny nose, sneezing, red or itchy eyes, throat irritation and coughing. Those with asthma may have an asthma attack; while some people develop a skin rash. Mold may even cause a chronic infection of the sinuses, or sinusitis.

IT ALL STARTS WITH CONTROLLING MOISTURE

Here are some recommended steps to take to help prevent water intrusion so mold and mold-borne illnesses do not get a foothold in your home:

  • Conduct inspections frequently. Look for evidence that water is causing problems, especially on ceilings and around windows. Do you see staining or wet spots on carpets, ceiling tiles or walls?
  • Use the smell test: Does any area of the home smell musty? If so, do further exploration until you find the source.
  • Check your humidity. If levels are above 60 percent, conduct additional evaluations to determine why.

The types of mold usually found in homes do not produce dangerous toxins but can create the types of symptoms described above in susceptible persons.  BCS recommends getting a professional mold inspection done ASAP if you suspect mold. BCS can provide names of several independent mold inspectors who do excellent work.

If the inspection results show elevated mold spores, call BCS at 818-953-7100 to set an appointment to professionally remove all the mold.  Our years of experience in mold removal will ensure you’ll be happy, because we do it right the first time!

“DO IT YOURSELF” MOLD REMOVAL IS NOT RECOMMENDED

We occasionally hear potential clients ask, “Can’t I just do it myself?  It doesn’t seem like a lot of mold.  It’s just some stains on the ceiling and wall, from what I can tell.”

There is a huge difference between getting rid of mold stains and getting rid of the mold itself. There are dozens of commercial “mold stain removers” on the market, of course.  These promote themselves with statements such as:

  • “Our mold and mildew stain remover oxidizes with powerful peroxide cleansers.”
  • “We use enzymatic action to remove even the toughest mold stains.”
  • “Stain eraser – perfect answer for making mold stains disappear.”

However, while these products sound great, notice they do not definitively say that they get rid of the mold.  All legitimate mold remediation companies such as BCS have the purpose of removing the mold, not making it invisible. The only way you can protect your home environment and your health, if you have mold, is to call a professional such as BCS.

Professional mold remediation always requires some level of isolation of the contaminated materials, whether it be the home structure itself or the contents.  Containment of the area or areas affected by mold is done because when mold is disturbed, the spores go airborne and could cross-contaminate other areas of the home if not contained.  This is another key reason professional remediation is needed. The removal process is done under negative air pressure containment and all air is filtered through a HEPA air filter before being vented outside the home.

Mold-borne illnesses can be prevented.  However, if you or someone you know is having any of the symptoms listed above, especially over a lengthy period of time, it is imperative you have a professional mold inspection, and if elevated levels of mold are found, call BCS at 818-953-7100 so we can get rid of it.

Shopping for Office Cleaning

What to Consider When Shopping for Office Cleaning

All business owners want to know what the “going price” is for office cleaning and what it includes.  Most companies that Building Cleaning Services, Inc. (BCS) has given quotes to are “shopping around,” getting at least three quotes, a great idea, although price is but one of the many variables to consider when hiring any cleaning company.

The price of office cleaning depends on several factors including the type of cleaning services required, the square footage needed to be cleaned, any specific requests and how often it is cleaned.  Typically, the price per square foot per visit decreases as the frequency of cleaning increases.  A word of caution:  If you base your decision solely off a low price, it can end up costing you more in the long run because of a lack of quality cleaning, poor consistency, and unreliable customer service.

How BCS Calculates Its Cleaning Quotes

Typically, when a potential cleaning client contacts BCS, an appointment is set to schedule a walk-through so we can put together a free quote for office cleaning.  Our Janitorial Sales Manager, Alan Eames, meets with the client and he is shown all areas that need to be cleaned.  If the square footage of the office is not known, measurements are taken of the areas to be cleaned.  Then the frequency of cleaning is decided upon.  Some clients request a few scenarios: for example, for five days/week versus three days/week, so they have a choice.  We inquire as to any specific requests – items that may have been overlooked by the previous cleaning company (if there was one) so that those things are given more attention.

Then we want to know if the client would like an initial deep cleaning.  Initial deep cleanings are generally required at the beginning of any cleaning program before starting regular cleaning services and normally requires a crew with multiple cleaners.  Deep cleanings are well worth the upfront cost to a business. It allows BCS to bring the entire facility up to our standards and to have a fresh start.

For a large metropolitan area like Los Angeles, cleaning quotes range from $18/hour to $25+/hour, depending on all the previous factors mentioned and what you would like us to do.   Other factors may also influence who you choose as your cleaning company, such as services which save you time.  BCS can have our cleaners keep track of janitorial supplies and place orders when you start to run low, so you do not have to worry about ordering toilet paper, paper towels and hand soap for example.  Additionally, other specialty services such as window cleaning, carpet cleaning and power washing can be obtained at a reduced price if you’re a BCS client, saving you money in the long-run.  And finally, BCS prides itself on its unique Quality Control, which includes giving clients a Quality Control Logbook to communicate concerns directly to the cleaners so they can be taken care of the next visit, as well as regular visits by our Quality Control Manager to inspect the facility to ensure the job is being done right.

All these factors should be taken into consideration to determine if what you are paying for office cleaning is worth it.  Again, if you base your decision solely off price, it can end up costing you more in the long term.

CLEAN QUARTERS CAN RAISE YOUR COMPANY’S INCOME

https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/t/handshake-colleagues-near-desktop-handshake-colleagues-near-desktop-office-120013211.jpgDid you know that hiring a commercial janitorial company that provides office cleaning services such as BCS can have a positive impact on your business? Our detail-oriented cleaners, open communication with our office and spot-on quality control results in clean quarters – which can raise your company’s income.

Here are just a few ways in which BCS’s commercial janitorial service can improve your business:

First impressions can be either outstanding or deadly for your business. Making a good first impression is imperative if you want your potential clients to become clients. Having a clean office space will make those prospective clients feel comfortable about obtaining your services. Creating an outstanding first impression is a key reason for having a commercial cleaning service such as BCS maintain the cleanliness of your office.

A clean office can also boost the productivity of your employees. A dirty or unhygienic workplace can be a breeding ground for bacteria and microbes that can potentially make employees sick. By choosing BCS, an indoor environmental cleaning company that only uses non-toxic cleaning solutions, you can keep your office environment clean and safe for your employees. They’ll be able to work in a more comfortable space with a happier frame of mind.

The benefits of having a commercial cleaning service taking care of your office are immense. BCS not only delivers what it promises regarding our janitorial service, but we can also clean your office upholstery, carpets and windows the way they should be. Our cleaning expertise minimizes wear and tear on your office property, helping to save you time and money.

So, avoid the hassles and simplify your life! The benefits you’ll get from our expert janitorial service are much more than you can imagine. The sooner you hire BCS’s janitorial services, the quicker you will realize these tremendous benefits.

Building Cleaning Services Helps Homeowners with Kitchen Mold

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services, (https://buildingcleaningservices.net/), a Los Angeles mold remediation company, is helping homeowners with kitchen mold, which it says is one of the most prevalent locations for mold in a home.

A recent client, in a review on Yelp, stated: “It was a pleasure working with” the staff and crew with BCS. “Mold was discovered in our kitchen and bathroom by a mold inspection company and they referred us to BCS. We are happy they did. The kitchen was a more serious situation. Kathy put me at ease about the process, was always available on the phone or e-mail, if she did not answer, called back within minutes,” the homeowner wrote. Further, BCS was “both supportive and provided a road map through the process. The crew was diligent, polite, neat, and a pleasure to work with.”

Kathy Liverance, co-owner of Building Cleaning Services, stated: “From our experience in hundreds of mold removal jobs, we have seen that kitchens are one of the most at-risk rooms in a home, for mold. If you see signs of mold, it is best to get an inspection from an independent mold inspector right away, and hire a mold removal company to handle the problem. That way you can minimize any potential health problems that could arise related to mold in your home.”
