Controlling Mold Is Possible

Controlling Mold Is Possible

Table of Contents

As a general rule, mold is bad for you. Asthma, a sore throat, coughing or wheezing, red eyes, and a skin rash are just some of the symptoms that some people experience when exposed to mold. Severe reactions are possible for those who suffer from asthma or allergies to mold. Infected lungs are a serious problem for people with compromised immune systems or chronic lung diseases.

The presence of mold is inevitable. In all likelihood, molds have existed on Earth for a very long time. Mold can enter a home through broken seals, gaps around windows and doors, or even through the HVAC system. Outdoor mold can be brought inside on a person’s or a pet’s clothing, shoes, bags, or other personal belongings.

To detect and handle mold or moisture-related issues, Kleen Condition offers all necessary services.

Mold can spread after a flood or other source of standing water, such as a leaking roof, window, or pipe. Various types of organic matter serve as mold food, including drywall, ceiling tiles, cardboard, and wood. Dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, drywall mud, carpet, fabric, and upholstery are all potential mold growth mediums.

Is Mold a Problem in Your House?

Spots are another way that mold can disguise itself. It can be any number of colours, and it often has a musty odour. Mold should be eliminated if it is either seen or smelled. Identifying the specific mold strain is unnecessary.

Remove the mold and address the source of the moisture if you find it in your home. Hard surface mold can be cleaned with simple soap and water or a bleach solution of no more than one cup of regular laundry bleach per gallon of water.

If You Clean Mold With Bleach

  1. Be sure to keep your bleach and ammonia separate at all times. When bleach and ammonia (or other cleaners) are combined, a toxic gas is released.
  2. Never use bleach or any other cleaning product without first reading the manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. If you want some fresh air, open some windows and doors.
  4. While cleaning up damaged areas, it is important to protect yourself by donning rubber boots, rubber gloves, and safety goggles.

How to Stop Mold from Growing in Your Home

  1. Your home should have a humidity level of no more than 50 percent throughout the day. To maintain a comfortable level, use a dehumidifier or air conditioner. A metre to measure the humidity level in your house is available at most hardware and gardening stores. You should check the humidity levels more frequently than once per day because they fluctuate throughout the day.
  2. Maintain a free flow of air in your house. Exhaust fans with outdoor venting should be installed in both the kitchen and the bathroom. Ensure that the dryer’s exhaust is directed away from the building.
  3. Mold can’t grow without access to moisture, so if your roof, walls, or pipes are leaking, fix them.
  4. After a flood, it’s important to clean and dry out your home as soon as possible (within 24 to 48 hours).
  5. Before you paint, make sure your paint has mold inhibitors. Anti-mold treatments are available at hardware and paint shops.
  6. Apply mold prevention cleaners to the bathroom sinks.
  7. If the carpets or furniture can’t be dried right away, remove them. We recommend avoiding installing carpet in damp areas such as bathrooms and basements.
