Mold Risks and Causes

Mold growth is usually the result of moisture from plumbing leaks, high humidity, HVAC system problems, roof leaks, window leaks, floods, and more. The age of your property can also contribute to mold growth, so it’s key to get it inspected if you suspect something.

Mold exposure can cause detrimental effects if not removed properly. Those with seasonal allergies, asthma, underlying health issues, infants, and the elderly are more likely to be affected by mold.

Common mold signs:

  • Irritated lungs, throat, nose, and eyes
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Cold and cough symptoms

FAQs About Mold Remediation

How can I safely remove mold and protect my health?

The first step in mold removal is to identify the source of moisture causing the growth. Once the source is addressed, it's crucial to gather the necessary protective equipment before starting the removal process. This protective gear should include gloves, a respirator mask, goggles, and disposable coveralls. By wearing this gear, one can minimize personal exposure to mold spores.

Before beginning the removal process, it is important to isolate the affected area to prevent the spread of mold spores. This can be done by closing off doors and windows and using plastic sheets to create a barrier. Installing an exhaust fan can also aid in keeping the air clean during the removal process.

During mold removal, it is best to use a combination of detergent and water to clean affected surfaces. Bleach should be avoided as it can be harmful and may not effectively kill mold. Additionally, utilizing HEPA-filtered vacuum cleaners can help in capturing any loose spores and preventing their spread.

Once the mold is physically removed, it is crucial to thoroughly dry the affected area. Moisture promotes mold growth, so adequate drying is imperative to prevent its return. Dehumidifiers and fans can aid in speeding up the drying process.

To summarize, the safe removal of mold involves identifying the source of moisture, wearing appropriate protective gear, isolating the affected area, using detergent and water for cleaning, thoroughly drying the space, and taking precautionary measures to protect personal health. By following these expert tips, individuals can safely remove mold while safeguarding their well-being.
