Cornelius, NC – Mistakes to Avoid With Mold Cleaning | Removal Company Advice

BY: John Alexander, STOP Restoration - Charlotte North

Mold Remediation

Are you thinking about hiring a home restoration company to address mold damage? An expert restoration company will avoid the following mold cleaning mistakes.

Mold is amongst the most common health hazards found in homes. Yet, an enormous number of American households continue to ignore the problem. Others remain completely oblivious of mold presence in their homes until it spreads across entire space. Either way, if the occupants inhale or get exposed to mold spores in other ways, they can experience allergy-type symptoms such as eye irritation, runny nose and congestion, sore throat, skin rash, lung irritation, coughing, sneezing, headache, and so on.

When you do hire a mold cleaning company to avoid these issues, make sure that the agency avoids the following remediation mistakes:

Not Using Protective Gear

Since remediation experts directly confront mold, they’re more vulnerable to the above-explained dangers than others. Scrubbing mold leads to an emission of a huge dose of spores, which, if inhaled, can cause respiratory damage. That’s why mold restoration experts will typically come with the necessary protective gear. If your hired professional approaches the job without taking this critical precaution, it’s the biggest mold cleaning mistake they can make.Mold

Using of Mold Resistant Paint or Bleach

The problem with mold-resistant paint is that it delivers exactly what it claims to do, that is, resist mold damage. It won’t kill mold that’s already there. Even if you coat your entire home in mold-resistant paint, it won’t eliminate the problem completely. Plus, if the paint sits on top of pre-existing mold, the infestation will spread under the coating until it spreads across the entire wall.

Similarly, using bleach to get rid of mold is another common mold cleaning mistake. It’s important to understand that there’s nothing in bleach that kills fungus in homes. In fact, using a bleach-water solution to address mold invasion can fuel mold growth by providing additional moisture. Mold will grow back in the exact same spots rather quickly. You’ll need to clean the areas every three to four months.

Not Preventing Mold Spread

Mold remediation involves scrubbing surfaces, cutting out drywall, ripping up the carpet if necessary, and taking other similar steps. All these activities send mold spores flying around the space. To prevent mold spread, it’s important to seal the affected area as effectively as possible. Not abiding by the critical rule is among the worst mistakes a mold cleaner can make. The best mold remediation companies will leverage temporary containment systems so they don’t end up worsening the problem inadvertently.

Trying to Restore Unsalvageable Items

While it’s possible to remove mold from non-porous surfaces such as porcelain, metal, and glass, it tends to penetrate deep into carpets, insulation, wood, drywall, and upholstery. If any of these items are severely damaged, you have no other choice but to dispose of them. Retaining such as items and trying to restore them means they can become a health hazard for you and your family.

Conclusion

Now that you’re aware of the most common mold cleaning mistake, try your best to avoid them as much as you can.
