Mold Remediation in Marietta, GA

mold corner1Although mold functions in the breaking down and recycling of basic nutrients back to the earth, it poses several threats to humans as well as any material it encounters. It usually grows in dark humid areas and can survive in any condition provided there is a scent of water. Mold is lightweight, has small pores and can at times be tricky to detect until it is too late. Its favorite food is wet paper, which is why newer homes with more insulation are more at risk to mold problems. Not only that, it does not take long for mold to blossom, and it may have spread by the time you would detect it. Mold can be toxic or allergenic even when it is dead. There have been records of allergies and illnesses in humans that are caused by molds in old buildings.

MOLD REMOVAL IN MARIETTA

Once you identify mold or see its traces in your home, the next thing would be to carry out mold remediation. The first step in mold removal in Marietta is to find out the source to stop it from spreading or coming back. The next step would be to control the amount of moisture, which is important to prevent its threat to people and property. This can include removing standing water, fixing leaks, cracked masonry and separated roof shingles, installing a proper gutter system and repairing seals around windows and doors. If the mold invasion is minimal, you can most likely take care of it by yourself. But be sure to wear protective gear including a respirator and gloves, and also use the correct cleaning products. A regular cleaner can work effectively for most hard surfaces.

Note: It is not advisable that you use bleach and also ensure that the affected surface is thoroughly dry after cleaning.

Furthermore, make sure you properly get rid of any item that has been affected by mold. Large items that will not fit into plastic bags must be covered with polyethylene sheets, sealed with duct tape, and then thrown away with other construction wastes.
