Start the New Year Right by Eliminating Mold

It’s a new year, which means it’s a great time for a fresh start. Once all the decorations are put away and your home and office return to a sense of normalcy, take a look around. Is it time for a deep cleaning? Are there areas of your home or office that could be retaining moisture, leading to mold growth? This time of year is a good time for pipes to leak and moisture to creep in from the outside.

 

First, Looks for Signs of Mold

The obvious sign of mold is to see small or speckled black and brown spots. They can occur anywhere where moisture is present, like baseboards, cabinets and even behind wallpaper. Also look for any water damage or leaks, as these can easily and quickly lead to mold. Another sign is the musty odor that mold can produce. Even if you smell something funky but don’t see any signs of mold, it’s still a good idea to have a professional inspect. Mold can hide and be invisible to the untrained eye.

Some people also have allergic-like reactions to mold. Unexplained headaches, congestion, sneezing, itchy throat and watery eyes are all common mold symptoms. Mold spreads very quickly, so it’s important to call a professional like MicroZyme Technologies to inspect and eliminate mold as soon as you suspect it.

Eliminating Mold

The mold inspection process will include air quality and moisture tests. Some materials and surfaces will also be tested. Remember that mold is a naturally occurring organic product, so some mold is expected and okay. It’s when mold soars to high levels that it needs to be checked and eliminated. Eliminating mold includes removing materials that cannot be cleaned, vacuuming the air and surfaces and applying a treatment like MicroZyme’s EC-34 Technology.
