What To Do If You Find Mold In Your Household?
Hire Professional Mold Removal Services Right Away
Professional mold removal services can help you deal with your problem safely and effectively. Mold is present everywhere, and given the right conditions i.e. moisture and wetness, it will quickly spread. The National Association of Home Builders says that in just 48 hours, a moist environment combined with the right room-temperature conditions can lead to mold growth. Keep an eye on your kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area. As moisture and humidity are typically high in these spaces, they are more prone to mold. Your attic and basement are other areas of concern.
Potential Dangers Of Mold
If you suspect the presence of mold, arrange for testing and mold removal as soon as possible. Molds produce allergens, irritants and in some cases, potentially toxic substances which can cause many types of health problems.
- Skin irritation and rash
- Allergic reactions
- Eye and nose irritation
- Increase in asthma attacks for people with mold allergies
- Lung problems
DIY Or Mold Removal Expert—Which Option To Choose?
Many people take mold lightly and may be tempted to take care of the problem by themselves. Knowing when you can deal with it yourself and when to call a mold removal expert can prevent unnecessary health issues and remediation problems.
Generally, if the area affected by mold is less than 10 feet, you could probably take care of it yourself. But even this depends on the type and intensity of your problem. Some strains of mold do not respond to over-the-counter solutions. Bleach is worse as it only covers up the problem. Without the right equipment and safety gear, you also risk direct exposure.
