We want to educate our customers about the mold and mildew hazards

We can think of no single incident that could better illustrate the terrible hazards of mold than the one that follows.

A MOLD "HORROR STORY"

Rain King received a call from the family of an elderly woman who was hospitalized.  The family wanted to prepare this woman's home for sale since it was apparent that she would no longer be able to live alone if she were fortunate enough to recover from the illness, which was quite serious.

The family asked Rain King's technicians to come in and assess the condition of the home, with the view of preparing it for sale.

During a preliminary inspection of the home, it was found that a chronic leak in the basement had caused a great deal of moisture in the basement walls.  It was clear that water abatement and other measures would be necessary.

Attic Mold Remediation Services

As the inspection continued, one of Rain King's technicians also went to evaluate the attic space. 

Upon entering the attic, the technician found the
attic was completely filled with mold. 

The mold in the attic was caused, incredible as it
might seem, by the leak in the basement!

Due the excessive moisture in the basement, the mold found ideal conditions for growth in the wall spaces.  Once established, the mold continued on up through the walls and filled the attic space above.

HOSPITAL MAKES SIMILAR
DISCOVERY!

Following Rain King's alarming discovery, it was later learned by the hospital doctors that this poor woman and former homeowner had become dreadfully ill and was near death as a result of this same mold! -- a hazard she was not even aware existed in her own home! 

The mold had invaded the ventilation system of her home, and she was breathing it in daily.  In fact, her entire body was infected with this mold.  It was 8 months before she could leave the hospital, and it is fortunate indeed that she was finally able to recover.

This real-life mold "horror story" is not intended to frighten you, but simply to alert you to the very real threat posed by unchecked mold and mildew in a home.

WHAT EXACTLY IS MOLD and
WHY DOES IT GROW?

Mold is a species of fungus which reproduces itself by means of microscopic spores. 

It serves the purpose in nature of causing the decomposition of dead plant matter.  It does this by consuming and digesting organic matter,  in particular cellulose. 

This activity of mold is what prevents an enormous accumulation of dead plants, trees and leaves on our planet.

SO WHY DOES MOLD OCCUR
IN MY HOME?

Cellulose is also found in a wide variety of the building materials used in your home, such as the cardboard in drywall, the wood used to frame the walls and provide finish molding.

Cellulose is also found in many fabrics containing organic material such cotton and carpets, wool and silk. 

Mold will feed on the cellulose found in all these sources, and will also feed on dust and any other form of organic matter that is available in your home.

When high levels of moisture and humidity are present, countless thousands of mold spores, many of which may have previously been dormant, will begin to reproduce and grow in the form of mold and mildew. 

This can happen very rapidly -- even in just a matter of days or hours!

MOLD, MILDEW AND ILLNESS:
PROTECT YOUR HEALTH and YOUR HOME!

Enclosed areas where moisture is present, such as basements, crawl spaces, wall spaces, and attics, offer ideal conditions for the growth of mold, mildew and the proliferation of mold spores that lead to chronic allergies, asthma, even possible lung disease and other illnesses.

Basement Mold Remediation ServicesThe result can be deadly, as in our mold "horror story" shared above, or at least injurious to your health in one degree or another.

You don't ever want to treat this hazard lightly. 

Whether you see mold or not, wherever moisture is present, mold and mildew are not far behind, and may already exist in areas of your home where it is not yet visible.

MOLD WILL "EAT" THROUGH YOUR HOME!

Not only does mold present a health hazard, it can do costly damage to your home.

As explained above, mold lives by eating organic material wherever it can be found.  That means that when mold takes up residence your home, it is "feasting" on the organic material it finds in the drywalls, in the structure and support beams and so forth. 

Left unchecked, the mold will gradually consume and weaken the structure of your home.  This is a serious concern.

HOW CAN I PREVENT MOLD
IN MY HOME?

Mold spores are found everywhere on this planet, so it is essentially impossible to eliminate mold spores completely from our homes. 

What can be done, though, to effectively prevent mold spores from multiplying and then springing to life in the form of mold and mildew, is to eliminate the single most necessary element to mold growth: moisture.  

Rain King's mold and mildew remediation services will bring the health back to your home.

Rain King will begin by doing a thorough inspection of your home to identify areas where mold and mildew may be present, and where conditions may contribute to its growth.

Rain King will then employ mold and moisture remediation solutions to eliminate any existing mold and mildew, and to prevent a recurrence of this hazard in your home in the future.
