Mold Do’s & Don’ts
Mold is an ongoing concern and should not be treated lightly. In fact, if you discover mold in your home or office, be sure to take the discovery seriously because mold can adversely effect your health. Below is a list of tips to help you deal with your indoor mold infestation safely:
DO NOT place fans on mold thinking it will go away. When you blow air onto a mold infested area it will disperse tiny harmful spores into the air affecting the air quality dramatically and negatively.
DO NOT try to kill the mold. Dead mold spores are just as harmful to the human lungs as living mold spores.
DO NOT spray bleach or any other chemical on the mold because this will cause the mold to disperse its spores.
DO NOT think you are tough and mold won’t hurt you. Mold is an airborne pathogen, no matter how tough you may think you are, mold can adversely affect your health.
DO wear a respirator with P100 hepa filtration cartridges.
DO wear gloves.
DO put up containment with plastic sheeting to avoid the spread of spores.
DO use a hepa vacuum.
DO have negative air pressure.
DO call a certified mold removal and remediation professional to get a professional assessment of your mold issues.
