Mold Testing in RI

How Can Mold Affect My House?

Molds can be very destructive to your home. According to the Journal of Property Management, a single square inch of drywall can contain between one and ten million mold spores. Molds consume the materials that they grow on and can cause serious damage if the mold is allowed to grow rampantly.

Can Mold Make Me Sick?

If you suspect that someone in your home is ill due to an environmental factor, it is best to visit your doctor. Some molds are known to produce potent toxins under certain conditions. These molds produce mycotoxins and are commonly found in moisture-damaged buildings. You can become exposed to mold through inhalation, skin contact, or congestion.

Can mold cause health effects?

All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, toxins that may cause reactions in humans. The types and severity of symptoms depend, in part, on the types of mold present, the extent of an individual’s exposure, the ages of the individuals, and their existing sensitivities or allergies.” Why does it seem that mold is a bigger problem now than in the past? -In an effort to build increasingly energy efficient buildings, we have been sealing up our homes more and more tightly. This saves money on heating and cooling and lessens our energy consumption. The downside though is that our homes have less breathability than ever before. We are trapping in molds and other contaminates that may be harmful to us.

Customer testimonials

I had a devastating fire in my home, which led to extensive water and mold damage. Gary and his crew were so polite and professional. They took great care in cleaning and packing my possessions in an orderly way. They compiled an easy to follow inventory, cataloging everything and providing a detailed list of all of the contents of my home. When I was able to move back into my house, all of my belongings were returned to their proper places. Gary always worked in my best interest and it was wonderful to feel like he was an ally to me during this extremely difficult time in my life. I would recommend Giordano Restoration to anyone who is faced with a disaster in their home.
