You Say Tomato, I say Tomato

Perception is an interesting thing.

Some people see red where others see pink. Some people think olives are delicious while others can’t even be in the same room when a jar of pimentos is opened. Conversely, there are some things that are indisputable truths regardless of the person experiencing them. For instance, nobody likes the smell of skunk. Another good example of this is mold. Some describe it as “earthy”, others say it smells like dusty plants. No matter what, it smells like trouble if you’re not prepared for it.

Mold is everywhere. It is a naturally occurring and, when kept in check, isn’t a big deal and is typically undetectable to the human eye. Problems begin to arise when mold spores are allowed to continue growing behind walls or under floorboards, typically as a result of moisture, darkness, and certain atmospheric conditions. It is very easy not to notice if you are unaware of a leak.

A lot of people have heard about the ill effects of black mold. Most of these people may not know that mold can’t be killed. It can be remediated, which essentially means to reduce the negative impact mold can have on a person by returning it to normal levels. This is done with a combination of proprietary cleaning agents that SERVPRO Oxnard has at our disposal.

If you think you may have a mold infestation or a leak behind a wall, give us a call today at 805-984-2347. We are here to help.
