Don’t Spray Mould, Leave the Remediation to the Professionals
Posted in Air Quality, on September 09, 2016
The typical first reaction to finding mould is to get rid of it. Mould attacks and damages your health, your indoor air quality, and the state of your home. A lot of articles on the internet suggest spraying certain chemicals onto the mould to get get rid of it, but that may just be one of the worst things you could do.
When mould is disturbed it releases millions of mould spores into the air, hurting your air quality, and spreading all throughout your home. Dead mould spores that go airborne can not only affect your air quality, but can sometimes be more harmful than live mould spores. This means, if you try and remove the mould from whatever area, you are going to disturb it and send millions of dead mould spores airborne, and they will attack your health and wellness, and your indoor air quality.
It is our suggestion never to try and remove mould yourself. Since there are types of mould that are much more dangerous than others, and you can’t tell, you could really be putting your air quality and your health in danger by trying to remove the mould yourself. Not only is spraying it a bad idea, but any home kit that promises to help remove mould is bad idea.
The best thing to do is to call us, and leave the mould alone. We come in and test for mould, and give you a report that states if you have mould, how severe it is, as well as what type. We then give you scope of work and recommendations on how to proceed to make your home healthy again and how to improve your air quality.
Trying to spray chemicals, or remove mould yourself is always dangerous, and is not worth the damage it will cause to your air quality and to the health of your loved ones. If you notice any moisture or areas that are damp, don’t hesitate to call us to come out and figure out what the problem is and how to deal with it safely and effectively. We are looking out for the best interests of your air quality and the health of the people living in the home.
You never know what type of mould it is, and how it is affecting your indoor air quality and the health of your loved ones. Put down the sprays and home kits and give us a call so we can help you fix your mould problem without causing anymore damage to your air quality or health. Give us a call today! You will want to be a little careful dealing with companies that perform both mold remediation and mold testing. This is a clear conflict of interest! A testing company should never be able to provide the fix or the solution. In many cases, a small mould issue could be blown out of proportion in order to secure the removal or remediation contract. Call us today...we can help.
