Cleaning Company Shares Insight Into Common Problem Encountered In Mold Infestation

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS), (, a Los Angeles mold removal and construction cleaning business, urges homeowners not to commit “fungicide”—meaning attempting to handle the infestation improperly or using chemicals which can further affect health and can make the problem worse, while also not handling the mold at all. Unprofessional treatment can be dangerous to try, and it delays effective handling of the mold problem.

The California Department of Health (CDPH) asserts that attempting to clean a mold infestation by yourself may be hazardous, stating: “During the cleaning process, you may be exposed to mold, strong detergents, and disinfectants. Spore counts may be 10 to 1000 times higher than background levels when mold-contaminated materials are disturbed…Consider hiring a licensed contractor or other experienced professional to carry out the work.” The CDPH’s full report can be found here:

Building Cleaning Services urges homeowners to prevent these risks. Enlisting a qualified mold removal and cleaning company is a safe way to ensure the infestation is completely resolved.

The company has helped many homeowners and offices in Los Angeles fully address mold infestation sites, like this man from Santa Monica who stated on “Last year we were shocked to discover a huge mold problem in our bedrooms due to torrential rains and poor irrigation outside of our condo. As parents with two young children, we knew that this was a serious problem. After shopping around we chose BCS to come in and help us out. Believe me, the mold remediation process was pretty gnarly…but the crew over at BCS were extremely patient, thorough and quick with their service.”
