How to Remove Mold From Your Home

1/20/2020 (Permalink)

A window and curtain on a rainy day, covered in raindrops with the sunlight coming in. Mold comes from water damage and water damage can come from anywhere, including as simple as a rainy day.

Knowing the facts about mold is helpful in household information. However, many of the details and truths about mold can get lost in the process. This is the case, especially when it comes to the fact that we can search for any process online through all of the blogs that exist. Several unaccredited, sourceless websites can post procedures without actual facts about things like, for example, how to remove mold from your home. For instance, some people believe bleach can kill mold. That’s not true. While it can temporarily remove the mold, the spores from the initial mold will grow back within a couple of weeks of spraying the bleach.

Similarly, people may consider merely painting over the mold. The truth is that you cannot only paint over top of the mold. Even if it could be, that would pose a long term threat to the safety of the home because the mold would still impact the air quality. The truth is that mold can only be removed appropriately with equipment by professionals. There isn’t an article online that can teach the ways of mold removal in the safest possible way. Most of the life hacks centered around mold removal do not acknowledge that mold spores can exist unseen even after we remove the mold. Mold spores can wait for the proper environment and begin the fruition process as soon as those environmental needs have been met. Therefore, only professionals can create a genuinely safe removal process of mold.
