When Should You Call in the Pros to Do Your Mold Cleanup?
Most of us have experience cleaning mold—at least from around the tub, sink, toilet, or on kitchen countertops. Those hard surfaces can be disinfected and wiped down easily. Assuming you don’t have asthma or a respiratory problem, it’s safe to clean up small, isolated spots of mold.
But when you’re facing a significant mold infestation or have a respiratory condition like asthma, NYC mold removal services get the job done better while preventing health scares.
Hazards of DIY Mold Cleanup
Experts, including the CDC and EPA, recommend calling professional mold remediators for several reasons:
– Mold cleaning kicks up mold and spores, increasing the risk of mold sickness
– Those with asthma or lung diseases should not touch mold
– Special tools and encapsulation products should be used
– Wood, drywall, and other porous surfaces require professional mold removal
When to Call for Professional NYC Mold Removal
Mold often spreads, invisibly, to places throughout a home or building. Cleaning with household products does not stop the spores from growing more mold later.
Even if you are a physically healthy adult, you should bring in a professional to check for mold in the walls, in your HVAC equipment, and throughout the home.
In office buildings or multi-family dwellings, always assume that mold exists in multiple units. Especially those with shared walls or ductwork.
