Bleach is not the answer! And ignoring those pesky spores only allows them to multiply by devouring the structure they’ve adhered to and enjoying the moist environment that they are living in. Did you know that once mold begins to dry it becomes even more dangerous? The spores become air borne and want to find more moisture…like your lungs! Bleach doesn’t work because it only bleaches out the color of microbial growth – it won’t kill it.
Health Risks of Mold
Due to the health risks associated with mold exposure, it is best to have mold remediation conducted as soon as possible. Though the type of reaction depends upon the mold present, according to both the EPA and CDC all molds have the potential to cause health issues such as:
- Breathing difficulties
- Persistent cough or cold symptoms
- Burning or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat or lungs
- Asthma attacks
- Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
- Skin irritation
- Allergic reactions
- Opportunistic infections in immune-compromised individuals
Mold remediation is best performed by trained experts that understand proper mold removal and protection methods. Mold affected drywall needs to be removed, framing sanded and dust Hepa vacuumed….then the framing needs to be treated with anti-Microbial solution. The solution we spray is used by hospitals and is considered a green product. It is safe and you will be too. Rainbow International Restoration is an IICRC certified firm in mold remediation.
