LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS) (http://buildingcleaningservices.net/) warns Greater Los Angeles area residents to ensure water damage is cleaned up fast within 24 hours because of potential mold growth which is encouraged by warm and humid conditions often found in California.  The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that about 50 to l00 common indoor mold types have the potential for creating health problems.

BCS, a company with more than a decade experience in water damage restoration and Los Angeles mold removal, stressed the importance of rapid handling of water intrusion because, unattended, within 72 hours there can be the onset of mold.  Garrison Clarke, BCS Operations Manager, stated, “Common sources of indoor moisture include: roof leaks; storm-driven rain through window frames exterior walls or doors; leaking pipes, sewer back-ups or overflows and damp basements or crawl spaces due to rising damp or poorly managed rainwater drainage.”

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Institute of Medicine of the U.S. National Academy of Science, and the World Health Organization, agree that living or working in a building with mold damage results in increased risk of respiratory disease.

People who may be affected more severely and quickly than others include infants and children, the elderly, pregnant women, those with respiratory conditions, asthma, allergies or weakened immune systems.

More information on the specific cleaning protocols can be found on the company’s website: http://www.buildingcleaningservices.net/water-damage/. The company also helps property and home owners, greatly relieving any worry or stress about mold risks.  As one Redondo Beach client reported on Yelp.com, BCS “was able to explain the whole process thoroughly and provide recommendations when I needed them…. BCS also found an earlier undetected source of mold damage under the sub-floor of the house.… We likely would have never found that, and since it is directly under our bathroom/bedroom, who knows how long we could have been inhaling it.”
