It isn’t that uncommon for some mold to grow in a home in at least small amounts. In some cases, it’s pretty easy to clean off surface mold. However, sometimes mold isn’t just on the surface, or the mold keeps coming back. Then it may be time to hire a Mold Remediation Service in Palm Desert.
Risks Associated With Mold
Mold can produce allergens that cause allergic reactions, bring on asthma attacks and irritate the lungs, throat, nose, eyes and skin even in people who aren’t allergic to it. Mold exposure can increase the risk of respiratory illnesses and, in those with chronic lung problems, cause infections in the lungs. While it’s impossible to remove all mold because of its presence in the air, keeping the levels as low as possible is beneficial to health. Having excessively high mold levels can weaken the immune system and make people more susceptible to illness. Mold can also damage walls, furniture, and other household items and make it so they need to be replaced, which can get costly over time.
Molds are most common in areas that are damp or moist. Limiting moisture in the home will limit mold growth. Keep humidity levels below 50 percent and ventilate cooking areas and showers. Clean any mold right away to keep it from spreading. Commercial mold removal products can be used or a mix of one gallon of water and one cup of bleach. When painting areas that have more exposure to moisture, such as the bathroom, use paint that contains a mold inhibitor.
