Preventing mold growth in your house is important for both your health and to protect your possessions from being destroyed. Mold is an important part of our outdoor ecosystem. However, it can lead to respiratory and skin issues if it grows in work or home spaces. Mold creates spores which easily travel into your house through open windows, cooling systems, clothes, or pets. Mold prevention is optimal, however if you do have mold growing in your home, our team at My Pure Environment can help you eradicate any mold effectively and naturally with our two step fog treatment.
Where is mold often found?
Mold requires moisture to grow. If you are seeing mold, it is a good indicator that moisture is present in that area. In an article about mold control posted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the following areas are listed as high risk for mold:
“...around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been a flood. Mold grows on paper, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.”
What do I do?
Controlling moisture is essential for mold prevention in your home. If mold is found, it is imperative that you act quickly to remove it. Household cleaners can be used to rid any visible mold. Cleaning as well as controlling moisture will prevent the mold from continuing to grow. In addition to this, an experienced professional should be called to rid the environment of mold spores that can linger in the air, dust, and hard to access areas. These spores are invisible to the naked eye and will create more mold when they land on wet surfaces. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advises that precautions should be taken to limit exposure to mold and mold spores.
What will a professional do?
A professional will be able to assess if the mold has spread to areas that you can’t see such as an HVAC system or behind walls and wallpaper.
