Company Warns of Rapid Mold Growth Risk During Summer

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS),, a company specializing in mold removal for residential and commercial buildings, warned greater Los Angeles residents about fast growing mold during the Summer months. A plumbing problem, leaky roof or malfunctioning HVAC system can cause water damage that can lead to rapid mold growth, Jeff Valliere, BCS Vice President for Sales and Delivery and a licensed contractor, stated.

California legislature enacted the Toxic Mold Protection Act (TMPA) in 2002. In an update on the implementation of this law, it said that damp buildings encourage the growth of bacteria and degradation of wet building materials can “release irritant chemicals indoors. Some or all of these chemicals or biological organisms may contribute to occupant illness.” The California Department of Health Services recommends that water intrusion be corrected promptly and any mold growth removed safely.

BCS has a long work history of ensuring black and other hazardous mold is remediated quickly, safely and with no worry to tenants Valliere issued specific guarantees to the public in a recent statement about mold removal.
