Mold and Health effects,

San Francisco Mold removal and Mold Inspection 415-861-8003

Understanding Exposure To Mold.
In understanding how exposure to mold might cause or contribute to illnesses it is useful to distinguish among the meanings of the words allergenic, pathogenic, and toxic effects that exposure to something might explain. Allergenic – causing allergic Reactions – rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, skin problems, otherPathogenic – Produces Infections, caused by pathogens such as bacteria or virusesMould Smell Illnesses – headaches, vomiting, nausea, blocked noses, and asthmatic [MVOC’s–DF]Toxic Illnesses – where mold is involved, may be produced by mycotoxins that are produced by some, not all, mold species.

Note that even for a “toxic” mold species; the actual level of toxicity can vary significantly depending on growing conditions such as the growth substrate (what the mold is feeding-on), humidity, moisture, and other factors.
Serving San Francisco since 2001

Respiratory Illnesses –Digestive Tract Illnesses – liver diseases: fibrosis and necrosis; vomiting, diarrhoea, intestinal bleeding Reproductive Illnesses – infertility, variations in reproductive and hormonal cycle Highly Serious Illnesses – Cancer, Tuberculosis, Lupus, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Chronic Fatigue Disorder (CFS), Fibromyalgi, Epstein-Barr, aspergillosisMicrobial Volatile Organic Compounds:MVOCs(Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds)MVOCs & Moldy OdorsMicrobial Volatile Organic Compounds (MVOCs) are gases produced by mold. The musty odor which you might smell from mold is caused by MVOCs. These odors are actually chemicals which are produced my moulds during some parts of the mold’s growth cycle.Laboratory experiments have identified over 200 compounds as MVOCs. They are commonly made up of strong chemicals such as aldehydes, benzenes, tulolenes and many more.When Does Mold Produce MVOCsSome molds produce different MVOCs depending on conditions such as how much moisture is available and what material the mold is growing on. However MVOCs are only produced at all when mold is actively growing (which depends on certain conditions such as humidity, temperature, air pressure and light.This is because MVOCs are the waste products created by mold as it grows.So if you can smell MVOCs from mold it is a sign that mold is actively growing in your home and that you should remediate the mould problem as soon as possible.More Mold Signs Removing MVOCsEven if you cannot see mold, the musty smell of MVOCs can alert you to the presence of mold growing somewhere in your home hidden from view. MVOCs can be doing damage to your health even if no mold growth is visible in your home.Where Mold Grows get a Mold Inspection for help with finding mold in your home.Once mold growth has been removed from a home some MVOCs may still be present as they can remain ingrained in permeable items such as clothes, carpets, upholstered furniture and curtains. These moldy odors can be hard to remove.Symptoms Caused by MVOCsMVOCs can cause symptoms like headaches, nausea, dizziness and fatigue. MVOCs may also irritate the eyes and the mucus membranes of the nose and throat. However, because research on MVOCs is still at an early stage, not everything is yet known

about MVOCs and our reactions to them.

•Mycotoxins:Mycotoxins are toxins produced by some species of mold (myco means fungal). These mycotoxins are some of the most toxic substances in existence.Mycotoxin TypesSome of the different types of mycotoxins are:•Aflatoxins (produced by Aspergillus) – includes Aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2, M1 and M2•Ochratoxin – includes Ochratoxin A, B, and C•Trichothecene (produced by Stachybotrys) – includes Satratoxin-H, Vomitoxin and T-2 mycotoxins•Fumonisins – includes Fumonisin B1 and B2•Zearalenone Killing MycotoxinsMycotoxins aren’t actually alive like mold spores. So when we talk about “killing mycotoxins” it really means breaking down mycotoxins and their toxicity so they are no longer dangerous to humans.It takes fire at 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius) for half an hour or fire at 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) for 10 minutes to destroy trichothecene mycotoxins.Ozone is supposed to kill most or all mycotoxins. However the level of ozone you need to kill mycotoxins is not safe for humans. So the use of an ozone generator there must be no one in the house..Mycotoxins do eventually break down and lose their toxicity after some time. Some types of mycotoxins can take several years though, for example trichothecene mycotoxins which are among the most resilient.How small are Mycotoxins?Like mold spores, mycotoxins are too small for us to see with the naked eye. Mycotoxins are as small as 0.1 microns. Mold spores are between 1 and 20 microns. Human hair, for comparison, is about 100 microns thick.How do Mycotoxins Enter the Human Body?When people are around toxic mould they are usually exposed to airborne mycotoxins by breathing them in. These mycotoxins end up in the lungs and cause breathing problems and other severe symptoms.

What are VOCs?

Volatile organic compounds are chemicals used to manufacture and maintain building materials, interior furnishing, cleaning products and personal care products. “Volatile” means that these chemicals evaporate or can easily get into the air at room temperature. “Organic” means these chemicals are carbon based. The term “chemical emissions” refers to VOCs as they evaporate into the air from products.

Studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S.EPA) and other researchers have found that VOCs are common in indoor environments and that their levels may be two to a thousand times higher than outdoors. There may be anywhere from 50 to hundreds of individual VOCs in the indoor air at any one time. Some may produce objectionable odors at very low levels, but many have no noticeable smell. Many VOCs are irritants and can cause headaches, eye, nose and throat irritation and dizziness. Long-term exposure to certain VOCs may lead to chronic diseases or cancer. At high concentrations, some VOCs are toxic.

Where are VOCs Found?

The majority of VOCs found in the indoor environments and originate from building materials, indoor furnishings, cleaning supplies, consumer products and processes, such as printing, cooking, hobbies, cleaning, interior renovations and pesticide applications.

Results from studies conducted as part of the state of Washington’s East Campus Plus Program showed that 96 percent of the VOCs found in a large office building following construction resulted from the materials used to construct and furnish the building.

Volatile organic compounds are found in a number of products, including:

Furniture, Paint, Drywall, Bedding, Paint strippers, Adhesives/glues, Solvents, Upholstery and other textiles, Carpet, Cleaning products, Copy machine toners, Office supplies, Electronic equipment, Dry-cleaned clothing, Building materials

A few common VOCs in homes, offices and schools include:

Formaldehyde, Decane, Butoxyethanol, Isopentane, Limonene, Styrene, Xylenes, Perchloroethylene, Methylene, Chloride, Toluene, Vinyl chloride

Means of Chemical Exposure

There are three ways in which people are exposed to chemicals: ingestion, dermal absorption and inhalation. Ingestion occurs when materials that have chemical content are eaten or placed in the mouth.  Dermal absorption occurs when chemicals come into contact with the skin.  While these are both significant forms of chemical exposure, the majority of everyday chemical exposure occurs through the air we breathe in our homes, offices, schools and other indoor environments. These airborne chemicals are commonly referred to as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).

Health Problems Caused by Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Many factors determine if people get sick from exposure to indoor pollutants, including the type of pollutant, its concentration, the duration of exposure, the method of exposure (inhalation, ingestion or dermal absorption) and the individual sensitivities of those exposed. Building conditions, such as the amount of ventilation, age of the building, indoor temperature and humidity levels, can also have an impact.

Health Impacts

Indoor Air Quality and Your Health

People spend the majority of their time indoors, where they face significant health risks due to repeated exposure to air pollutants in their homes, offices, schools and other indoor environments. Exposure to these pollutants can lead to numerous immediate and long-term health problems. Common pollutants include respirable particles, chemical emissions, mold spores, animal allergens, radon, combustion gases, smoke and pesticides.

Immediate or Acute Health Effects:           

Headaches •Eye, nose and throat irritation •Allergic skin reaction •Difficulty breathing •Nausea and/or vomitingConfusion •Loss of coordination •Dizziness •Fatigue •Nosebleeds

Health Problems Associated With Mold

Health problems caused by mold may be acute, which occur immediately, or within a few days of exposure. Health problems may also be chronic, which are long-term health effects that might not occur immediately.


Acute health problems associated with indoor mold exposure include:

Irritated eyes, nose and throat Headache Difficulty with concentrating or short-term memory

These symptoms together are often called sick building syndrome, but are more correctly referred to as building-related symptoms. Generally, acute symptoms resolve when the person is removed from exposure. However, mold exposure may also aggravate chronic conditions, such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and  hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and may trigger asthma and allergy attacks.

Overview of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Indoor Air is 2 to 5 Times More Polluted Than Outdoor Air

Most of our exposure to environmental pollutants occurs by breathing the air indoors. These pollutants come from activities, products and materials we use every day. The air in our homes, schools and offices can be 2 to 5 times more polluted, and in some cases 100 times more polluted, than outdoor air.

People Spend 90% of Their Time Indoors

Indoor air quality is a significant concern, because when the hours spent sleeping, working in offices or at school are added up, people on average spend the vast majority of their time indoors where they are repeatedly exposed to indoor air pollutants. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) estimates that the average person receives 72 percent of their chemical exposure at home, which means the very places most people consider safest paradoxically exposes them to the greatest amounts of potentially hazardous pollutants.

What Contributes to Poor Indoor Air Quality?

The primary sources of indoor exposure to airborne chemicals are products used in interior environments, including furnishings, building materials and other household and office products, that can emit thousands of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particles into the air. Of all the culprits that can affect IAQ, chemical emissions are the most harmful as they can contribute to a wide range of health effects.

Mold in San Francisco

Moisture problems are another common source of indoor air pollution as they can lead to indoor mold growth. Mold can also emit VOCs and particulates, compromising indoor air quality and leading to negative health effects.  Since it is impossible to eliminate mold spores, the best way to reduce the impact of mold on indoor air quality is to prevent or promptly repair the moisture problems that enable mold growth.


The particles emitted from products such as furnishings, building materials and other household and office products are another source of indoor air pollution. Airborne particulates can also come from dirt and dust that is tracked in from outdoors. Particulates can trigger allergies and other respiratory problems in many people.  Installing walk-off mats at doorways and changing air filters regularly are both good strategies to limit these pollutants.

Poor Ventilation

Most of the buildings in which people spend the majority of their time are tightly sealed and insulated to keep out unconditioned outdoor air. Furthermore, most ventilation systems are designed to bring in very little outdoor air and instead recirculate the indoor air that has already been heated or cooled. While this strategy is effective for minimizing energy costs, it can have a negative impact on indoor air quality.

Tips and techniques:

The tips and techniques presented in this section will help you clean up your mold problem.  Professional cleaners or remediators may use methods not covered in this publication.  Please note that mold may cause staining and cosmetic damage.  It may not be possible to clean an item so that its original appearance is restored.

Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible.  Dry all items completely.
 Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
 Absorbent or porous materials, such as ceiling tiles and carpet, may have to be thrown away if they become moldy.  Mold can grow on or fill in the empty spaces and crevices of porous materials, so the mold may be difficult or impossible to remove completely.
 Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold (see discussions: What to Wear When Cleaning Moldy Areas and Hidden Mold).
 Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces.  Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting.  Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
 If you are unsure about how to clean an item, or if the item is expensive or of sentimental value, you may wish to consult a specialist.  Specialists in furniture repair, restoration, painting, art restoration and conservation, carpet and rug cleaning, water damage, and fire or water restoration are commonly listed in phone books.  Be sure to ask for and check references.  hire a licensed Contractor.


Places that are often or always damp can be hard to maintain completely free of mold.  If there's some mold in the shower or elsewhere in the bathroom that seems to reappear, increasing ventilation (running a fan or opening a window) and cleaning more frequently will usually prevent mold from recurring, or at least keep the mold to a minimum

Water Damage Restoration Guide

San Francisco Water Damage Restoration Guide. 415-861-8003
EPA presents strategies to respond to water damage within 24-48 hours. These guidelines are designed to help avoid the need for remediation of mold growth by taking quick action before growth starts. If mold growth is found on the materials listed in Table 1, refer to Table 2 for guidance on remediation. Depending on the size of the area involved and resources available, professional assistance may be needed to dry an area quickly and thoroughly.

* If mold growth has occurred or materials have been wet for more than 48 hours, consult Table 2 guidelines. Even if materials are dried within 48 hours, mold growth may have occurred. Items may be tested by professionals if there is doubt. Note that mold growth will not always occur after 48 hours; this is only a guideline.

These guidelines are for damage caused by clean water. If you know or suspect that the water source is contaminated with sewage, or chemical or biological pollutants, then Personal Protective Equipment and containment are required by OSHA. An experienced professional should be consulted if you and/or your remediators do not have expertise remediating in contaminated water situations. Do not use fans before determining that the water is clean or sanitary.

† If a particular item(s) has high monetary or sentimental value, you may wish to consult a restoration/water damage specialist.

§ The subfloor under the carpet or other flooring material must also be cleaned and dried. See the appropriate section of this table for recommended actions depending on the composition of the subfloor.

Structural drying Santa Rosa, California 24/7

Structural Drying of Water Damaged Properties in Santa Rosa, California 
707-800-3890, open 24 hours

Carpet cleaners, which are typically known as "restorers", do not structurally dry properties properly, and this can cause more damage than you would expect.

An Example - Water causes a flood in the home and both the underlay material and the carpet become wet, below this, there is a a concrete slab that also gets wet. Sheetrock walls then absorbs the water, and the pine frames, which are inside, also become wet.

With most professional carpet cleaners, water is sucked out, and air movers will dry the underlay and carpet. But, secondary damage can still occur; this is a result of the concrete slab absorbing the water. The sheetrock also has a paper lining, and this can absorb a great deal of water as well. If this is an area with high humidity levels, mold is bound to form on the sheetrock and the back lining of the carpet. Once mold forms, you have to replace the carpet. Frames also have to be cleaned and ice blasted or sanded, to get rid of the mold; for all of these reasons, drying the structure is very important.

Our specialised equipment can dry under subflors, the walls, inside the ceiling cavities, and crawlspaces.

It is pivotal to have all the right moisture detecting equipment in place as well, and the Delmhorst Moisture Meter is one of the best available. It has a penetrating, and non penetrating, hygrometer, and hammer meter; it also has download capabilities.
Restoration Express has introduced the Force 9 axial fan, which has 3700 cubic feet/ minute of air, in comparison to 1150, which is what is found with traditional fans. So, drying is completed faster, making your customers happier. The Phoenix focus axial fan, which is equivalent to the force 9 fan, produces over 3000 cubic feet/minute, making it more than just a fan.
You can reach Dryfast of Santa Rosa, structural drying team today at 707-800-3890, and can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in the event of an emergency job.

Property Restoration Information San Francisco

Water Damage Restoration Company San Francisco,  providing 24/7 emergency response 415-861-8003

Water Damage  in San Francisco can be catastrophic. Unfortunately, it's a city  where buildings are old and cause water damages. -  and of course, flooding -- commonly occur, causing water damage to millions worth of property. When such tragedies take place, specifically in the case of flooding, professional water damage restoration technicians need to step in immediately for several reasons:

Flooded structures can take weeks before drying out.The foundation of buildings can be damaged by rotting and deterioration as a result of water remaining underneath floors.Corrosion resulting from water penetration can attack electrical equipment, as well as its wiring, endangering anyone who enters the structure.The surfaces of the structure may be lined with asbestos and other dangerous contaminants left by flood waters, again a safety hazard.Paper products can deteriorate quickly and may be prone to growing molds.

Dryfast of San Francisco can  Help You

Fortunately,  Dryfast Services provides water damage restoration any hour in the day to immediately respond to your needs. In fact, upon inspecting your property, we will make every effort to bill your insurance provider so that we can begin our work of saving the most of what we can.

This is what you can expect of our restoration services for water damage:

Knowledgeable, skillful, and certified personnel will promptly attend to your needs. (Certification is provided by the IICRC - Nationally recognized authority in our industry.)An itemised report and/or a detailed quotation, covering all recommended restoration work to be done, will immediately be provided.Any standing water will be extracted as soon as possible.Any furniture, carpet, or flooring -- even the structure itself -- will be dried and restored right away to minimize water damage.If needed, deodorising and disinfecting will be applied. Electronics and equipment affected by water damage will be recorded and restored.Wet documents will be recorded, dried, and restored.A quotation for items that cannot be replaced and need to be restored (including carpets and vinyl) will be provided.Any furniture or flooring soiled by floodwater will be cleaned.

Professional  Water Damage Restoration, Not Just a Quick Fix

When a structure is hit by flooding, the most common remedy applied for the situation is simply drying any visible moisture. For instance, if a carpet is wet, windows are opened and fans or dryers are used on the carpet to dry it. Wet vacuuming may then follow to remove any dirt that floodwater may have brought in and left.
Serving San Francisco since 2001
The problem with such a remedy is that it fixes the appearance of the problem but not the problem itself: internal moisture. The carpet may appear dry but the flooring under it isn't, creating ideal conditions for mold to grow.

We don't settle for such ineffective fixes. Our trained personnel in San Francisco  will use only the best and most advanced professional tools to ensure that all moisture left from flooding is eliminated from carpets, floors, subfloors, underlays, walls, skirting, contents, and ceilings. When no moisture is left behind, no mold grow -- saving you from the terrible experience of a foul smell enveloping your structure weeks after flooding has subsided.

The professional readings we take include the following:

Sheetrock readings, concrete readings, wood floor readings, temperature readings, non-penetrating, readings grains per pound, air readings, underlayment and carpet readings

All of these readings are carefully taken to ensure that your structure and your belongings are saved from further damage and deterioration.

Would you rather hire a supposed restoration service provider that simply asks, "Is this carpet dry enough?" without carrying out real tests and paying attention to necessary details? If you wouldn't, call Dryfast Water Damage Service of San Francisco! Call.

Dryfast of San Francisco prides itself with the speedy response it can provide to meets your needs. For your water damage restoration needs, don't hesitate to call us immediately so that we can do the best job for you.

What to do when you have Water Damage in Santa Rosa, California

Important facts to now about Water Damage Restoration , Local Santa Rosa office is open 24/7.
Professional restoration is provided by Dryfast of SantaRosa, California. 800-980-8003

It doesn’t have to rain for forty days and nights for your home to sustain flood damage; broken pipes, backed up or broken sewer or septic systems, and accidental sink and tub overflows are the main causes of in-home flooding and the damage it leaves behind.

What should you do when you go to the basement to discover a foot of water?
Or if you come home from work to find the bathtub had overflowed and is still running?

Below is some invaluable information which will not only help you keep all of your eggs in one basket regarding the potential for in-home flooding, but will also assist you by preventing even worse damage than you can imagine.
Follow this information in any flood damage situation, and have a read of this article to help you get further prepared.

First Priority

When you first become aware of water accumulation in any room, if it is not raining hard you need to turn off the water main to the house or apartment.
This is your number one priority (after safety)
If you are a homeowner you likely know where this is; if you do not, these valves can be found typically in the cellar or basement, and can possible be found outside on a pole or on the building itself. This guide may help you locate your water valve.
Make sure you are aware of the location of the valve at any home or apartment you reside in. If your home operates on a well-system for its water you may have to actually cut off the power to the well in order to stop the flow of water into the home. At any rate, the flow must be stopped before you go any further.
The next step is to give us a call 800-980-8003, 24/7 Serving all of Santa Rosa, California
You will  then need to quickly assess the damage with your eye. Estimate the depth of the water; if you have power in the home it is best if you DO NOT go into the water for any reason. This could cause serious injury or death. Simply give the situation a good once over visually and proceed to call your flood damage restoration specialist with the information immediately.
Acting fast is essential when it comes to this step. If you have been away from home for a couple of days or even weeks, and are unsure of the amount of time the water has sat stagnate you must move even faster. The structural integrity of your home and the level of effectiveness of the restorative measures used on your possessions and house will be greatly determined by how fast you act when calling.

More Important Information

If your entire main living space is saturated or flooded you will want to either shut off power to the residence or leave the residence until your professional in-home flood damage restoration specialists arrive; it is important to be safe!
Once the pros arrive they will assess the situation throughout your home and consult with you regarding all they observe. They will make a recommendation regarding action, and this will typically begin with immediate removal of the water, regardless of the amount. This will be done by the restoration company by means of a motorized water pump or very powerful water vacuuming system. The method and equipment used will greatly depend on the amount of water needing removed from the structure.
Your in-home flood damage restoration company and the team working with you will then assess the damage to your possessions and the structure. They will be with you every step of the way, seeing to it that the very best equipment and most effective restoration methods are used to save and restore most everything that has been damaged.

At  Dryfast of Santa Rosa, California we provide the professional water damage services you require 24/7. We use only the safest and effective products to get your carpets looking new and smelling fresh again.

Water damage Assessment and Inspection
Before we do anything we take a look at what damages have been done and how best to restore them. We will make an honest recommendation based on how long the carpets have been wet and how the damage was created. Carpets that have been exposed to sewage-contaminated waters for more than 24 hours should be disposed of as soon as possible as they will be beyond repair.

Detection of hidden / trapped moisture
We will remove standing water from your carpet using an advanced extraction method with our powerful vacuums. We will then use moisture detection tools to discover any further moisture issues to ensure there is no possible danger of further moisture damage.

Professional Water Restoration
We can then conduct a thorough drying and cleaning of your carpets using pulleys to lift and remove your carpet. We can then sanitize, pressure and steam clean your carpets to ensure they are clean and safe to be returned to your home.
With our 24/7 professional services in Santa Rosa, California encourage you to call as soon as the damage occurs so we can get our team out to your home and get started before further damage can occur.
