When it comes to health and safety of your family, there is no amount of money to great for your to spend to make sure that you’ve done everything you can for yours and your family’s health. This is why sometimes we need to take matters into our own hands and secure our home however we can. Mold can create various health problems, and give birth to multiple respiratory diseases as well as other. But what can we do to ensure our home in mold-free? For starters, we can remove it on our own, without calling a mold remediation company, or make sure that it doesn’t appear in the first place. If you do want to find out how to do this, make sure you keep reading.
You need to protect yourself before you start removing the mold. As you scrub the mold from a hard surface, it will start to release small particles of it into the air. These small mold bits and specs along with spores can enter your body through the respiratory system. And once they’re there they can do unimaginable damage to your immune system. So get those mask, and make sure that you remove from the premises anyone who is allergic to mold and spores or dust in general.
Removing the Mold
First, you need to get rid of the existing mold in your home. Get some sandpaper or if the problem is too much to handle, use harder abrasive and apply it to wall scrubbing machine. You can get them in any store, but being that they are costly to make sure that the problem is great enough that you require wall scrubbing machine.
Now that you’ve removed all or at least most of the mold in your house, you need to apply a special type of chemical that will kill the rest of it and prevent it from multiplying. You can get this mixture in any store, but make sure that it is eco-friendly and in regulations with the SODT. The best way to go about it is to get a sprinkler bottle and apply generously on those walls. Once you’re sure that you’ve covered every inch of that wall you can continue to step next.
Adding a protective layer may sound similar to the preventive layer, but trust me you need to do this final step to ensure your safety. Ask for this mixture at any better-equipped hardware store or dye house. Use a brush and apply this paint as you would any other. This protective layer captures any remaining mold in between layers. Not only that but it also prevents mold from entering the wall. Humid weather can give birth to mold easily, but now that you’ve done everything you can not only to remove it but also to prevent it from generating, you’ll have nothing to fear.
