The Basics on Molds

It’s a fungus that reproduces via spores that can float in the air. When it lands over a damp surface, it can thrive and multiply there. You can see various colors of molds which include orange, yellow, black, white, purple, or green.
This fungus can grow on various materials such as cloth, wood, carton, papers, glass, plastic, and tiles. The surface must be moist and can be a dark or lighted place. Also, it eats the surface where it’s growing, so you can expect damages to your wood or upholstery with molds.
If you have zero knowledge and experience in mold removal and disinfection, then call a professional restoration service today. You can book an early appointment or free consultation with us.

Who Are Vulnerable To Mold Infestation?

Seniors or elderly

Here is a further explanation for the respective health consequences of mold infestation.

Respiratory Problems

If you are asthmatic, then inhaling mold spores can be a serious concern since it can cause an asthma attack and shortness of breath. Typically, these mold spores can cause irritation and inflammation inside your nose, throat, and lungs.

Skin Rashes

Besides asthma attacks, you can also develop an itch and redness on your skin when mold spores are present. With that, you have to immediately wash your skin with running water and soap.

Red Watery Eyes

When you have an asthma attack or continuous sneezing, your eyes naturally react by being reddish and watery. When this occurs, you need to seek medical help right away.
If you don’t have the right tools and skills for efficiently removing molds around your house, then get help from professionals like Royal Restoration. We give free estimate service and consultation.

Tips: Preventing Mold Infestation Inside Your House

Mold spores aren’t visible to our naked eyes, so it will be impossible to ensure there are zero spores around your house or office. Going back, molds only grow when there is sufficient moisture on your surfaces, so your main goal will be to reduce the moisture level inside your premises.
Furthermore, here are some helpful tips from our personnel for you to avoid mold infestation inside your residence and commercial establishment.
During hot seasons, use your dehumidifiers and AC units to remove excess moisture in the air.
Allow your interior doors to be opened at some points to permit free air circulation inside your premises.
Do periodic cleaning and maintenance with your HVAC system, so you are confident that it’s efficiently keeping your indoor air clean and cool.
Check your plumbing and sink for leakages.
Immediately attend and dry your wet floors, shower, underneath the sink compartment, and other areas prone to moisture and water leaking.
Secure a moisture meter inside your house to periodically check your moisture level. You must keep it within 60% moisture level to avoid mold infestation.
During winter, make sure your walls are properly insulated to prevent condensation inside your residence or office.
Ensure there is proper ventilation inside your kitchen and shower area so that it won’t be too humid.
In your basement, ensure your crawl spaces are well-ventilated and protected from groundwater going inside.
Use area rugs instead of wall-to-wall carpets to cover your basement floors. However, if you insist on the latter, then install a sub-floor to avoid moisture dilemmas.
