The Truth about Mold Remediation You Need to Know

The Truth about Mold Remediation You Need to Know

When we hear the word “mold,” we often think of an infected area of black spots on a wall that cause serious health problems. That is partly accurate and partly mythical. The truth is, there is always some mold everywhere – indoors and outdoors, and in the air and on surfaces – and it may not always be visible to you, and it will not always make you sick.

The Truth about Mold Regarding Health Issues

Mold isn’t always toxic and it affects everyone differently. Some people who are sensitive to mold, especially those with lung or respiratory conditions, may experience symptoms when exposed to mold at different levels of severity. Some people might suffer from nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or skin irritation, while some people might not have any symptoms at all.

What Causes Mold Growth?

Mold requires certain conditions to grow, like moisture and high humidity. If the relative humidity level is too high and there is not enough ventilation, especially in a bathroom with shower, laundry room, or kitchen, you are providing a perfect environment for mold to grow in your home. Also, if there were recent flooding or leaks in your building that wasn’t properly cleaned and dried off, there will most likely be mold growing around those areas.

How to Prevent Mold

  • Keep humidity levels no higher than 50 percent in your home.
  • Use exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms. Keep the bathroom or shower doors open after use.
  • Repair any leaks in your house such roof, walls, or pipelines as soon as possible.
  • If there was flooding, make sure the house is thoroughly cleaned and dried by a professional water damage restoration service. This includes carpets, hardwood floors, walls, upholstery, etc.

When is Professional Mold Remediation Necessary?

If there is minimal mold growth in your home, you might be able to clean it up yourself with some cleaning agents. However, to prevent potential safety hazard, the cleaning process requires protection gears as well as good knowledge of mold cleaning.

When the contaminated area is too big or severe or mold is growing underneath the surface, you must contact the professional mold removal company. Mold needs to be cleaned off immediately as it will spread quickly if not removed right away. A licensed and certified service will have a deep understanding of mold and the proper equipment and solutions for the job.

When a team of professional mold remediation arrives at your home or business, they will inspect the mold growth, looking for all infected areas, its source, and the severity of the contamination. Then, the technicians will document the inspection and create a remediation plan. The mold mitigation professionals will repair the water problem such as leakage or flooding damage, eliminating the source of mold. They will isolate the contaminated area and replace the infected materials from the site, preventing future mold growth.

Cleaning mold can be an intimidating task. Ask your local mold remediation service how they can help at a reasonable price. Your mold remediation professionals with experienced mold technicians will take care of the job with proper equipment, skills, and knowledge. Protect your health and the house or business with the correct mold removal process.
