Why You Should Not Attempt to Remove Mold Yourself

8/18/2017 (Permalink)

Roof leaks are typically a high source of mold growth throughout your home. Other common places include the bathroom, around windows, and sinks.

SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor understands that when it comes to your home you want what is absolutely best for it from which the saying “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself” comes in. But what about mold remediation?

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines mold as- a superficial, often woolly growth produced especially on damp or decaying organic material or on living organisms by a fungus. Mold spores are all around us both indoors and outdoors. But when does it become too much? When you have a water damage in your home or business and it is not taken care of promptly, there is a chance that mold may start to grow in its place after just 72 hours. Once a person who is not a professional in the restoration industry attempts to remove the source of mold without the proper protective equipment, tools, and knowledge there is a chance that they have just endangered their own health as well as the health of anyone who comes to their home. Mold spores can easily become airborne and not taking care of containing the area and wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment, can lead to several health issues including several diseases. Excessive mold spore exposure is dangerous without the necessary tools and knowledge needed to complete the job accurately. There are just some things that people can’t do themselves.

Trust SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor. Our staff are certified and knowledgeable on the mold remediation process for your specific, unique, mold damage. They will make sure the job gets done promptly and correctly the first time.
