InfoGraphic – DIY vs Pro Mold Removal and Prevention
From Our Friends at 1800WaterDamage.com
Are you thinking about tackling your own household mold problem all by yourself? It can’t be that difficult, right? After all, why spend the extra money to have a professional mold remediation company clean up your household mold problem when all it takes is a bucket of bleach and some scrub brushes?
Don’t take the risk. In cases involving mold that covers over 10 square feet of indoor or outdoor surface, we highly recommend that you don’t do it yourself. You risk your own health, and the health of your family. In fact, local laws may require you to use a professional mold remediation service for certain types and sizes of mold problems.
This infographic explains the extra steps professionals take to ensure the safe, full removal of mold. It also includes a summary of the health risks posed by mold. And what you can do to prevent mold from growing in your home.
The bottom line is mold and mold spores pose a serious health risk. So call a professional like our friends at 1800WaterDamage.com.
And for heaven’s sake, if you are tackling a small mold problem in your home, don’t use bleach as your cleaner. It only scrubs away mold branches, leaving the roots intact in porous surfaces. Plus it is corrosive and harmful to people and the environment. See details in our blog article that dispels the myth about bleach as the best mold cleaner for porous surfaces.
Instead of bleach, use our non-toxic Endurance BioBarrier Mold Cleaner Prep to deep clean any surface, followed by our non-toxic Endurance BioBarrier Mold Prevention spray for long lasting prevention that lasts through 100’s of wet-dry cycles on virtually any indoor or outdoor surface.
