Common Misconceptions Regarding DIY Mold Remediation
Many individuals are scared of a potential high price that mold remediation can bring and attempt to clean the problem themselves. While in some cases this is a valid option, it is important that you know what you are doing so that you do not make the problem worse by trying to save money. Here are three common misconceptions that we often hear after coming to a job that was made worse by an individual attempting DIY mold removal.
- Do not try to clean any mold with at-home remedies, such as bleach or vinegar. Any improper cleaning techniques can actually worsen the damage and cause it to spread further.
- Do not paint or caulk over any moldy surfaces. This does not treat the problem, but in fact, makes the problem spread faster.
- Do not touch any moldy surfaces directly as it can release its spores and pose severe health risks.
Creating a negatively pressurized area when cleaning mold is vitally important when trying to prevent the spread of spores. At AdvantaClean we use containment and high powered air scrubbers to clean the air as we clean the mold surfaces. That way we can stop the spread of mold in your home and bring your life back to normal.
