Mold Services in Greenbrae & Kentfield, CA

Greenbrae and Kentfield are filled mainly with hillsides and waterfront. As beautiful as this can be, it also harbors mold and mildew. Our company has offered mold inspection and remediation services throughout the bay area for over 45 years, with in-house trained and certified technicians providing truly expert care.

The inspection is competitively priced and includes a diagnosis of problem areas in your home. A number of factors influence the growth of mold colonies, and older homes are especially at risk. The first factor is the presence of spores. These are basically seeds for fungi, only invisible to the eye and nearly weightless. Spores can drift in over the years or hitch a ride on your clothing, then hide out from the vacuum under furniture and behind baseboards. The next factor is water, which can enter your home in a number of ways. Storms, leaky pipes or simple seepage can provide more than enough moisture for mold. The water collects and forms shallow pools that trickle around the floor, seeking areas with low elevation and carrying mold spores with them along the way. This leads to the last factor, which is a space with poor ventilation. Inadequate airflow allows water to stand and stagnate, raising the humidity level and creating the stuffy atmosphere mold thrives in.

If not properly treated, mold will eventually destroy everything it grows on, from wood to drywall to sheetrock, racking up potential thousands in repair bills. But more alarming than property damage is the risk mold poses to your health. Any species of fungi can cause an allergic reaction, but many also produce poisons known as mycotoxins. These toxins saturate the tissues and spores of the plant, and when inhaled can cause a wide range of health problems, from heart disease to bronchitis to cancer, even neurological disorders. The elderly and young children are particularly at risk. Our inspection will identify which species are present in your home with laboratory analysis of field samples.

Once your situation has been fully assessed, we’ll provide you with a free estimate for remediation and abatement services customized for your home.
