Did you know around 50% of homes have an issue with mold?
Although it is common, many people still don’t understand it completely. For example, can mold effect your health?
Do you have to be a professional to remove mold? How do you know who is qualified to remove mold properly? How does mold remediation work?
All of these questions will be answered throughout the article. Pay attention to how Complete Detail plays a vital role for mold removal in your home.
It is not a myth that untreated mold can result in sickness. Many times, a homeowner may be unaware of mold growing in a home. However, it can result in various health issues. For example, you may notice symptoms including: headache, sore throat, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes and fatigue. If you suffer from asthma, asthma attacks can occur. It is important to find the root of the problem, especially if it is a mold problem.
It is important to remember how dangerous mold can be. Further, do not try remediation yourself. You can spread spores and make the problem worse and more expensive in the long run. Remember, mold professionals understand much more than just getting rid of visible mold. We know how to find out the type of mold being dealt with and how best to remove it. Additionally, we find out how much moisture is in the home causing the mold to grow. Once the mold is removed, we have special equipment to take moisture readings and ensure no further growth. So instead of doing it alone, call the professionals at Complete Detail.
Mold thrives with excessive moisture. Because it can be tough to spot, a professional is needed. As mentioned before, if you try to handle the problem yourself, mold spores could spread, and your problem will become worse. When we come to your home or office, our technicians perform a thorough examination and analyze the problem so that we can offer you a step-by-step and detailed plan on how we will carry out the remediation.
Mold effects people in different ways. For example, those with asthma, or any other lung or respiratory issues are most at risk. However, mold can be toxic for anyone to breathe in. It will often lead to difficulty breathing, runny nose, itchy/watering eyes and sneezing. If you suspect mold growth in your home, don’t wait to call us. Our professionals will be happy to assist anyway we can.
If you have been a victim of mold in your home but do nothing about the moisture problem the mold will only return. The best way to control moisture that can lead to mold growth is to follow a few simple steps:
If the moldy area is small—it’s growing in an area that’s smaller than 3 feet by 3 feet—you can probably do a DIY cleanup. However, there is need for caution in this area. You may end up making the matter worse in the end. The CDC recommends wearing an N-95 respirator and safety glasses while handling any mold. After leaks and moisture has been cleaned up simply use 1 cup of bleach in one gallon of water.
If you have a large amount of mold and you cannot clean up the mess yourself, it is best to call a professional to help do things the right way.
It is no secret that mold can have adverse effects on your health. However, if mold is not eradicated it can have long term effects on a person. We will not only discuss what those symptoms are but how they can be diagnosed if they get extremely serious.
In rare cases of long-term mold exposure, some have experienced mold poisoning. Symptoms alone cannot diagnose mold poisoning. The following options are available from a doctor:
Blood test– A test on your blood needs to be taken and a sample sent to a lab. There it will be tested for the reaction of certain antibodies in your immune system to different mold species. This will help to diagnose mold allergies and reactions to mold. A blood test can also check for biotoxins in your blood from mold exposure, which can also reveal mold poisoning.
Skin prick test– Your doctor will perform this by taking small amounts of mold and apply it to skin using a tiny needle. Your skin will break out in bumps, a rash or hives if you are allergic to mold.
Your doctor will know best how to proceed once the results are in.
It is never a good idea to presume your homeowners insurance will pay to fix your mold problems. Insurance will usually only cover a mold problem if it results from an emergency covered on your policy. However, mold that resulted in lack of maintenance, persistent moisture, or from floodwaters (unless you have flood insurance). If you are concerned about your coverage, it’s a good idea to call your provider.
