Professional Mold Removal
You had a flood in your home and you thought that you got all the water dried out, only later to find mold growing behind your drywall and in your basement. This is not an uncommon series of events, many people have performed flood restoration in their home and found mold months later. What many people don't understand are the dangers of being exposed to mold and mildew in your home for an extended amount of time, and the risks involved in trying to clean the mold up themselves. Mold removal is a process that almost always requires professional help to get the job done safely, correctly, and permanently.
Mold Growth - The Gift That Keeps Giving
One thing that people discover quickly about mold is just how difficult it is to permanently remove it. Using over the shelf mold removal products, bleach and household cleaners, and water and soap often aren't adequate to keep mold from coming back with a vengeance. Mold is unique in that even though you have cleaned up and destroyed what you can see, there are still tiny microbes and spores that the human eye cannot see. These microbes and spores thrive in dark, damp environments, and build momentum as they reproduce. The only way to remove the mold for good is to destroy each and every microbe and spore.
Dangers of Mold Growth in Your Home
Mold is quite common in nature, breaking down dead organic material and generally acting like natures recycling service. It is also quite common in homes, where its recycling habits can become a problem. Mold growth in homes means the mold and the spores it produces are concentrated in a given area. This makes the mold spread rapidly, and causing a high enough exposure level to be a threat to anyone who lives around it for any length of time.
Larger mold clean up problems will require the assistance of a professional, especially when you are dealing with cases of black mold, which is extremely toxic and will produce serious health issues following exposure.
Be careful when working around mold. Some molds are dangerous to the touch, and touching mold releases thousands of microscopic mold spores into the air, where they may be inadvertently inhaled, or may cause new mold growth when they find a good, moist spot on which to land and begin to grow.
Benefits of Professional Mold Removal
When you hire a professional mold remediation company, you save yourself money in the long run. If you ever want to sell your home one day, you will have to pass a mold inspection. Often times when homeowners remove the mold themselves, they are not able to get rid of the mold entirely and therefore fail the mold inspection, and the buyer must be notified that there has been mold growth in the past. When you hire a mold removal professional, however, you don't have to buy any expensive equipment, you don't have to spend countless hours removing the mold, you don't have to worry about it ever coming back, and you have a 1 year guarantee on all work done.
