Avoid falling prey to a “disease” afflicting American homes, offices and families: mold. Prevent “treating” this in a way that could affect your health or undertake remedies that expose you to further risks.
After all, mold is a problem and can affect health. Called the asbestos of the new millennium, millions of dollars are being spent in cleaning up and removing it from homes and buildings. Families have moved out of their homes. Buildings have been condemned because of it.
The rapid growth of the mold industry in the United States has caught many contractors, homeowners, landlords, property managers, business owners and others by surprise. Mold litigation ranks as a legal specialization and insurance companies now often deny coverage due to skyrocketing costs connected with it.
From homeowners who become anxious for their family’s health, contractors who unexpectedly find themselves the subject of a legal suit and property managers pressured by tenant concerns about mold, there is very little information available that isn’t driving the message home, in one way or another, that they are in big trouble. And most of that information is very costly.
If mold is not correctly remedied or is addressed with chemicals that can also effect health, the problem is exacerbated—or as we refer it, “committing fungicide.”
There is something that anyone with a mold or water intrusion problem can do right now to get control of the situation and reduce their level of anxiety. Get better informed from sources that share their knowledge without hype that is designed to scare open your purse strings. Unfortunately, this tactic is very prevalent in today’s market and the only way to avoid being a victim is to estimate the integrity of your source of information. Is it primarily to inform, help and service you, or is it to profit from your ignorance and fears?
With experience, you will be able to tell the difference. Building Cleaning Services is committed to helping people to become better informed, to help them find the source of water intrusion or leakage that is causing the mold problem and to help you understand how it can be easily and swiftly addressed.

Many have become victims of those more interested in increasing an individual’s worry about mold into outright fear instead of servicing customers and fixing the problem.
