Mold and Health Risks

Mold can spread quickly through a structure, bringing a variety of health risks with it, the most common including allergic reactions, asthma, and irritation of the eyes, ears, throat and lungs. Even when you don't smell it, mold could be contributing to other health issues like headaches, nausea, bodily infections and skin lesions.

Mold Testing

If you suspect mold is growing in your home, call Handyman On Call to test your home. We will assess the residence for visible mold growths, persistent and strong musty odors, evidence of past moisture problems, and high humidity. Mold is most commonly found in rooms that retain moisture like bathrooms, kitchens, attics and basements.

Mold Prevention Services

Simple preventative steps can decrease the likelihood of future mold infestation, especially in rooms prone to mold growth. Handyman On Call can identify potential problem areas, improve ventilation to control the humidity of a particular room, weatherproof doors and window panes to keep moisture from seeping through, and ensure that moisture producing elements like pipes and HVAC units are in proper repair.

Mold Remediation

If we do discover mold, our trained technicians will perform a full mold remediation for your home. Remediation will remove mold and mold spores from a building to kill the existing mold and prevent it from spreading or returning. Sometimes this process can be relatively simple, but more serious infestations may require disposal of affected sheet rock, insulation or HVAC ducting. These remediation services include rebuilding of damaged areas. You will need your basement waterproofed when you see the following signs:
