Bio Clean of Utah, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, has issued a public advisory for property owners warning that mold is more likely to affect them than most natural disasters combined. “Unfortunately, many people forget about the often unseen natural disaster which is preventable mold—and it’s one which is most likely to strike them in this glorious part of the country,” said Daryl Olsen of Bio Clean of Utah.
Most people fear the huge natural disasters they hear reported on the news, such as earthquakes, lightning strikes, wildfires, tornadoes, and landslides, even though there is little they can do to prevent them. However, wet conditions and even the tiniest of leaks can create mold issues which could become a long-term problem in a home. Although Salt Lake City gets less than the average volume of rain across the US, it also gets more than its fair share of snow.
Left unattended, small issues can quickly become much larger problems that are a hazard to occupants. Olsen explained, “Testing for mold can be extensive, so we always recommend that concerned property owners bring in a qualified specialist to inspect and analyze the property, and to ensure adequate treatment is put in place to eradicate further spread. If left untreated, mold can affect large areas of any property and may even result in health problems and structural damage.”
Some people who are sensitive to mold can find that inhaling or touching mold spores can cause allergic reactions. The symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash, so it might be difficult to associate these with mold rather than a more neutral cause. Those with serious mold allergies could have much more severe reactions to mold, however, including shortness of breath, thereby putting their lives at risk.
Home and other property owners may not know that, since molds produce spores which are so small that they are not visible to the naked eye, they can be breathed in without the person realizing it. Serious health problems can be caused by black, allergenic, or toxic molds, especially for the young, the elderly, those with breathing issues, and even those whose immune systems are weakened by stress, fatigue, or other health issues.
Those looking for mold testing Salt Lake City may benefit from this advice that Olsen shared: “When anyone is looking to evaluate any mold testing and treatment company, they should enquire about the process they follow, what they can expect from the detailed inspection, and what advice they give after treatment. We take pride in providing world-class customer service through paying attention to the smallest details which can make a big difference—we want to make sure property owners understand what we are doing, as well as create a plan which they can follow in the future.”
Recently, KLKN TV featured Bio Clean of Utah’s Mold Testing Services. The article highlighted that black mold is usually found in water soaked ceiling tiles, wood, cardboard, wall paneling, and items made of cotton. It can grow on insulation and drywall, and can infest areas in the walls, floors, and ceilings.
Michael Hatz reviewed Bio Clean of Utah and gave them a 5-star rating: “Darrell and Bio Clean came highly recommended from my Home Inspector who found mold in the crawlspace of the home we were buying. Lots of moisture from water intrusion caused the mold and water damage. Darrell and his crew were awesome. They carefully removed all the mold and treated the affected areas, and then installed a brand new vapor barrier on the ground, all at a very reasonable cost. As a realtor in Park City, I highly recommend Bio Clean for any hazardous cleanup needs.”
