Frequently Asked Questions

What causes mold to grow?

Mold can grow in a home or business due to excess moisture or high humidity levels. Common causes of excess moisture include leaks in the roof, walls, or plumbing; condensation on windows or pipes; and poor ventilation in bathrooms, kitchens, and other high-moisture areas. Additionally, certain materials such as drywall, insulation, and wood can provide a suitable environment for mold to grow if they become wet or damp.

How do I know if I have mold in my home or business?

There are a few ways to determine if you have mold:
 

  1. Visible growth: Mold can appear as black, green, or white spots on walls, floors, or ceilings. It can also appear as a slimy or fuzzy texture.

  2. Musty odor: A musty or damp smell can indicate the presence of mold.

  3. Health symptoms: Exposure to mold can cause symptoms such as allergic reactions, respiratory issues, and headaches. If you or someone in the building is experiencing these symptoms and you suspect mold may be the cause, it is important to have your home or business inspected for mold.

  4. Conducting a Mold test : you can buy a mold test kit from a home improvement store or order one online. We can also come out and do a  professional inspection. 
     

It's important to note that mold can be present in a home or business even if it is not visible or if there is no musty odor. If you suspect you have mold, it is best to have it inspected and tested by a professional at ARLO Environmental Inc.

How do I remove mold from my home or business?

Removing mold can be a complex process, and it's important to take the necessary precautions to avoid cross-contamination and protect yourself and your family or employees from exposure. Here are some general steps for removing mold:

  1. Identify and address the source of moisture: The first step in removing mold is to find and fix the source of moisture that is causing mold growth. This may include fixing leaks, improving ventilation, or addressing high humidity levels.

  2. Contain the mold: Before beginning the mold removal process, it is important to contain the affected area to prevent the spread of mold spores. This can be done by sealing off the area with plastic sheeting and using negative air pressure to keep spores from spreading to other parts of the building.

  3. Protect yourself: When removing mold, it is important to protect yourself and others in the area by wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, goggles, and a respirator.

  4. Clean the mold: Once the mold has been contained and you have protected yourself, you can begin cleaning the mold. It is recommended to use a detergent solution or a mold-killing solution and a stiff brush to scrub the mold away.

  5. Dry the area: After cleaning the mold, it is important to dry the affected area thoroughly to prevent re-growth. This can be done by using fans, dehumidifiers, or opening windows.

  6. Dispose of contaminated materials: Any materials that have been contaminated with molds, such as drywall or insulation, should be properly disposed of.

  7. Monitor the area: It's important to monitor the area for any re-growth and make sure that the source of moisture has been addressed and eliminated.

It's important to note that if the mold growth is extensive, it's best to hire a professional mold remediation company to handle the cleanup process. We at ARLO Environmental Inc. are ready to handle the job in a safe and professional manner. Give us a call, and let's discuss your project! 

What are the health effects of mold exposure?

Exposure to mold can have a range of health effects, depending on the person and the type of mold. Some common health effects of mold exposure include:

  1. Allergic reactions: Mold can cause symptoms similar to hay fever, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash.

  2. Respiratory issues: Exposure to mold can cause asthma symptoms or aggravate existing asthma. It can also cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing.

  3. Headaches: Some people may experience headaches as a result of mold exposure.

  4. Eye, nose, and throat irritation: People with mold exposure may experience symptoms such as red eyes, a runny nose, and a sore throat.

  5. Skin irritation: Some people may develop a rash or other skin irritation as a result of mold exposure.

  6. Immunosuppression: Some studies have suggested that mold exposure may suppress the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections.

It's important to note that not everyone will have the same reaction to mold exposure, and some people may not experience any symptoms at all. However, if you suspect you have mold in your home or business and are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is important to have your home or business inspected and take steps to remove the mold.

How can I prevent mold growth in my home or business?

Preventing mold growth is important to maintaining a healthy living environment and avoiding potential health problems. Here are some steps you can take to prevent mold growth in your home or business:

  1. Control moisture: The key to preventing mold growth is to control moisture in the building. This can be done by fixing leaks and other sources of water damage as soon as they occur, keeping humidity levels low, and properly ventilating high-moisture areas like bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.

  2. Use exhaust fans: Use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens to remove excess moisture from the air.

  3. Keep the area clean: Keeping your home or business clean and free of clutter can help prevent mold growth, as mold spores thrive in warm, damp, and dirty environments.

  4. Inspect your home or business regularly: Regularly inspect your building for signs of water damage, such as leaks, discoloration, or musty odors, and take action immediately to address any issues.

  5. Keep a watch on HVAC systems: Make sure your HVAC systems are properly maintained and cleaned to prevent mold growth in ducts and other areas.

  6. Use mold inhibitors: There are products available that can be added to paint and other materials to inhibit mold growth, such as mildewcides.

  7. Regularly check Basements and crawl spaces: Basements and crawl spaces are particularly susceptible to mold growth, so it's important to regularly check these areas for any signs of moisture or mold.

  8. Be mindful of indoor plants: Be mindful of indoor plants and make sure they are not overwatered, as excess water can lead to mold growth.

By following these steps, you can help prevent mold growth in your home or business and maintain a healthy living environment.

What is Mold?

Mold is a natural product of the environment and cannot be completely removed. Mold spores are present in most any environment that contains moisture and oxygen. The problems begin when the mold spores take over and begin creating problems like respiratory distress and unclean surfaces that can lead to building damage.
