Moisture and Humidity in San Francisco

San Francisco, and the Bay Area generally, is a wet place. Fog and rain are a common occurrence in the region, even in the warm months of the year. When you have that much natural moisture in the air, mold is bound to become a problem. Combine that with the fact that San Francisco contains many old homes, some dating from the early 1900s, when San Francisco re-built after the famous 1906 earthquake. Older buildings gradually break down, meaning frequent roof leaks, plumbing leaks, and emergency water damage problems. These kinds of things can also lead to mold, especially black mold and toxic mold. If leaking or moisture from the weather is causing trouble with mold at your home or business, get a mold inspection or a mold test to determine if your living environment is safe.
