Cleaning Black Mold Disasters Requires Proper Safety Protocols

Dec 6

        The mold removal process is highly recommended to be left to mold remediation professionals because of its complexities.      

         Lately, mold remediation disasters have become common in North America.       

         They are also beginning to happen more often in other regions around the world.       

         Mold is a fungus that thrives in dark areas with an ample water source - typically widespread where flooding occurs or storms cause heavy rains.      

         But mold can grow anywhere if it gets the proper conditions to grow upon surfaces that remain damp long enough for mold spores to germinate and produce colonies of mold that appear as spots or patches which are clearly visible, especially when viewed up close.               

          These mold colonies are not always black in color.   

         When mold colonies grow it is inevitable that mold spores are released into the air.       

          Mold spores are microscopic and become airborne easily, especially when disturbed by things like vacuuming or dusting, opening windows for ventilation, turning on ceiling fans or using exhaust fans during mold remediation work.        

          There is no practical way to remove all mold spores from the air after mold remediation has been attempted so mold contamination will continue to persist throughout an environment until new mold colonies can establish themselves.       

         This explains why mold disasters continue to get worse despite mold remediation efforts because even if there were no visible mold spots or patches before mold removal started, once mold remediation is completed, mold spores will be released into the air and some of them will land on new surfaces to start the growth of new mold colonies.

         The bottom line is that mold remediation is a very complicated process that needs to be done properly in order to minimize the chances of mold spores becoming airborne and causing a future mold disaster.               

         If you have been affected by a mold remediation disaster, it is best to seek professional help from a qualified restoration company.  

         These companies have the experience and expertise to deal with these types of disasters and can help you get your life back to normal as quickly as possible.
