Combating Mold On Your Own
Water damage and mold damage will probably become a problem in your household at some point in your life. It’s just one of those things that happens to every one at some point or another. Though, not all mold problems are a big deal. Therefore, we don’t always need mold damage professionals. Here are a few tips on how to handle the smaller mold issues within your home.
Don’t forget that mold does have the ability to place health risks in the home. Allergic reactions are nothing new in the mold world. Sneezing, coughing, wheezing, itchy nose, and scratchy throat are just a few symptoms you might receive while working this project. Some more serious symptoms may include different respiratory problems.
The best way to avoid mold all together is to take the time to prevent it. If there’s just water in the home, patch up the water issue, dry out the place within 48 hours and you should be in the clear with the mold. Make sure to check the humidity levels in the home. Try drying out the area with dehumidifiers, opening doors and windows, and heavy use of fans.
There are a few home remedies for small areas of mold growth. One includes spraying undiluted vinegar to mold areas, letting the vinegar sit, and then wiping the slate. Adding a little bit of hydrogen peroxide will kick it into overdrive. Vodka also works like that scenario, let it sit and wipe away. Same with mixing two cups of warm water and tree oil. Any option should remove the mold and leave your area looking brand new.
