Why Can’t I Remove Mold Myself?
One question we’re often asked at AA Action Waterproofing regarding mold removal is “Why can’t I remove the mold myself?” While you can try to remove the mold, and perhaps you may seem successful at first, it really takes a trained professional to be able to eradicate your mold and give you the best chance to stop it from coming back.
First and foremost, there are thousands of different types of mold, and different types of mold will require different steps when it comes to mold remediation. A store-bought mold test may work, but it’s less likely to be as accurate when compared to a professional test, and you’ll need to be able to read the test correctly to make sure you’re confident about what mold you’re working with. When it comes to testing mold, professionals have the tests and the experience to read them, so the type of mold will be determined with confidence.
Next, mold spores spread through the air, so as you’re removing mold you could actually be putting a greater amount of spores into the atmosphere of your basement. More mold in the air can lead to the mold coming right back, so all of your materials and your time may turn into one big waste. Professional mold remediation is done by experienced professionals, and these are the ones who will know how to eliminate mold while keeping its spread to an absolute minimum.
Lastly, you’ll need to be able to aptly protect yourself from the mold, as mold spores can be highly irritating, and sometimes dangerous, to the respiratory, nervous, and circulatory systems. A professional mold remediation service knows how to keep protected, and you won’t be putting yourself at risk.
