New internet trend can cause you major health issues

Recently a new trend has seemed to spread social media like wildfire with posting pictures of the holes in your walls and your own DIY fixes for them. It seems that many people have went to the extent as to make the holes themselves in rental properties just to have that “picture perfect” staged image to post on Facebook, twitter, reddit and 9gag.

got mold? wants our younger readers to know the hazards of doing such things to your home. Not only are you causing yourself the headache in having to fix the holes you created in your home, but you are putting yourself at risk of inhaling particles from the walls that you put the hole in. Many younger people don’t know the risks of Asbestos because they may have been born after it was stopped being used, but the reality of it is that they could be living in a rental property where it is present in the walls, by disturbing it you are putting yourself, any of your roommates, family members and even pets at risk of major respiratory issues and health issues.

Asbestos isn’t the only concern with this new “fad” out there. If you did have water damage and you are punching out holes in your walls, you need to consider the fact that you have now made any mold behind that wall now go air bourn and could potentially contaminate the rest of your home. This contamination can potentially cause other major health concerns as well.

So please people… if you are thinking about making a photo op out of your damage to your home, consider your health first. Also, if you have an issue don’t hesitate to contact us. 1-888-909-6653
