Mold Services in Portola Valley, CA

Portola Valley is another of the nation’s wealthiest towns, with beautiful, expensive homes and lovely scenery. But beneath this charming setting hides a sinister enemy: mold. Mold can quickly rack up thousands of dollars in property damage, turning a new, beautiful home into a wreck. Our company has offered mold inspection and remediation services in the bay area for over 45 years.

The bay area has a very pleasant, moderate climate. Temperatures never stray too far from the 40-80 degree range. This is very comfortable for humans, but it’s ideal for fungal growth. Another thing the bay area has is water, and lots of it. The foggy mornings especially offer up a veritable buffet for mold and mildew. But even if your home is sealed against humidity in the air, moisture can leak in through other ways. Water seepage is a constant problem, especially in older homes. The tiniest leak in a pipe or appliance can jumpstart a mold colony as well. Our inspection will find places in your home where moisture enters and collects, places where dust and mold spores hide out, and places where inadequate airflow provides the stuffy, stagnant atmosphere mold thrives in.

Our inspection also includes the collection of samples from your home for lab testing. We’ll find out the species of mold living in your home and their concentrations, which can be very important during remediation so that you know exactly how to fight your specific invasion. Different molds look and behave differently. Some mold produce poisonous mycotxins- these are the molds you really have to worry about. The tissues of the fungi are saturated with these toxins, including the airborne spores. If too much poison builds up in your system, you can start having severe health problems, from heart and circulatory sytem problems to bronchitis, chronic asthma, even neurological disorders.
