How Mold Can Affect You
Mold is a very dangerous health hazard and there are many different kinds out there; children, the elderly, and pets can be the most susceptible to the effects spores have as they float through the air without you knowing. When left untreated, mold can also cause asthma and allergies to act up, so it is important to get it taken care of quickly. As mentioned in our previous article, if left for too long mold can damage your house structure–Restoration Now! Omaha can help. As mold removal specialists, we recommend not trying to clean the mold yourself because many steps have to be taken before the mold-infested area is really clean. Below are the steps we take to clean the mold.
- The water must be evaporated from the damaged areas
- The air must be cleaned with a dehumidifier as spores can live on in the air
- Then the areas of mold must be cleaned up and disinfected
- We will save any belongings we can that have mold on them
- If the area is not cleaned properly the first time, the problem can become much worse
Appearance of Mold
Can you believe that 50% of homes are at risk for mold growth! This is not good. Now, not all mold is bad but when it is growing inside your home, it isn’t good either. It means some kind of moisture that shouldn’t be there is causing the mold to grow.
Signs you should watch for when looking for mold is:
- Look for any standing water
- Molds can look furry or cotton-like
- Molds are usually gray, white, or green in color
- You may be able to smell mold, although it does not always have a smell
