When you have a mold issue, your first response might be to try scrubbing it away with a household cleaner on your own, but this isn’t the safest or most effective option. It’s better to leave mold remediation to the professionals. Here’s why.
- Safety first: When you scrub mold, you can release harmful mold spores into the air and risk your health in the process. A professional mold remediation crew, like us at ARC Insulation, will be adequately prepared with the proper safety gear, like gloves, face masks, and safety suits.
- We’ll find the root of the problem: When you take on mold removal on your own, you likely attack the mold you can see without really wondering if there is something beyond your sight that could be causing the issue. When we come to do mold remediation, we will isolate the moldy area and perform an inspection to identify the cause. That way, the issue can be stopped in its tracks rather than applying a Band-Aid fix.
- Professional equipment: Professionals will also have professional mold remediation equipment, like HEPA vacuums, commercial dehumidifiers, HEPA air scrubbers, and special chemicals and sealers to further protect the area from the mold. All of this equipment allows for a far more effective remediation that will even prevent future mold.
It can be tempting to try to clean up your mold problem on your own, but professionals like us can leave you with more effective and longer-lasting mold remediation solutions. You can give us a call if you would like to learn more.
