Mold Services in Novato, CA

Novato is a beautiful place to live year-round, with temperatures rarely straying from the 40-80 degree range. Unfortunately, this is the perfect temperature range for mold and mildew. Our company has offered mold inspection and remediation services throughout the bay area for over 45 years and has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

The inspection, competitively priced at $349, is performed by in-house trained and certified remediation experts and includes lab testing and a diagnosis of your home. The diagnosis will outline problem areas in your home related to things mold likes. The first factor, obviously, is the presence of spores. Spores can blow in from outside over the years and hide out under furniture or in a dark corner, waiting for the second factor- moisture. Water can enter your home in a number of ways. A leaky pipe or simple seepage can provide more than enough. Even temporary moisture can kickstart a colony, like water from a storm or a pile of wet laundry. This water trickles around the floor, picking up spores as it goes and carrying them until it finds the third factor- poor ventilation. When water finds an area with poor airflow, it doesn’t dry up. It stands there, raising the local humidity and creating the stuffy, stagnant atmosphere mold thrives in. If a colony is not properly treated, it will eventually destroy everything it grows on, from wood to drywall to sheetrock.

Worse than property damage is the risk posed to your health. Many species of fungi produce poisons known as mycotoxins. These toxins saturate the tissues of the spores, which are inhaled without notice. Over a long period of time- such as months or years spent living in an infested home- the poison builds up and can cause a wide range of health problems. Heart damage, lung diseases, even neurological disorders and cancer. Our inspection includes the collection of samples for laboratory analysis to determine the species present and their concentrations.

Once your situation has been fully assessed, we’ll provide you with a free estimate for remediation and abatement services customized to fit your needs. Bay area residents have trusted Montgomery Sansome for nearly half a century. Let us show you why.
