Dealing With Mold in Your Rental Home
Molds are microscopic organisms that are present everywhere. They are critical for natural processes in the environment, but excessive mold growth in certain areas can be harmful to human health. National Property Management Group offers San Fernando Valley property management services to rental owners and HOA’s. Mold inspection is an important aspect of managing any property or home, so NPMG has some information about Mold to help residents in San Fernando Valley detect and protect their homes from the dangers associated with it.
Indoor mold contamination can lead to airborne spore exposure, or contamination by contact. These particles may trigger allergies, respiratory infection, asthma, cough, and much more. Mold particles will grow and multiply wherever the environment has sufficient moisture and organic matter, so you want to inspect your home for these common sources of moisture:
- Leaky roof
- Sprinkler spray hitting the house
- Plumbing leaks or overflows
- Shower steam
- Wet clothing
If you detect mold problems, NPMG suggests that you clean and handle the situation as soon as possible. Common household cleaners can eliminate the mold, but If the growth is over 10 square feet, NPMG recommends seeking professional help. Mold is a serious problem; so using smart judgment will keep you and your family safe at home. Many solid materials can be kept after thoroughly cleaning them, but food and any other items that are difficult to clean should be discarded. If you have any questions about mold growth in your home, or implementing mold inspections in your property, contact National Property Management Group in Santa Clarita. We serve the San Fernando Valley and surrounding areas.
