When it comes to mold remediation, we label it DNDIY, or “Do Not DIY.” Mold in the home can cause serious health problems and, unfortunately, most homeowners don’t realize how prevalent harmful mold can be. Rather than tackling this hazardous process yourself, it’s incredibly important to reach out to a hired professional. MSR Restoration offers professional, state-of-the-art services you can rely on for mold remediation in Philadelphia and South Jersey.
Why is it important to get professional mold remediation?
Since it’s not a simple fix, many ignore taking care of mold problems to avoid the stress and worry. Here are a few reasons getting mold remediation done by professionals is integral in keeping your family and home happy and healthy.
- Mold is hazardous to your health. As mentioned above, mold can pose a serious threat to your health. Since it can grow on almost anything in the home: the carpet, furniture, walls, clothing, floors, grout, etc., it can be incredibly dangerous. It can also be surprisingly difficult to detect. Mold can seem “invisible” if it’s growing behind walls or beneath surfaces, but even if mold is hidden from the naked eye, it can still have an adverse effect on the respiratory system. It’s estimated that of the 21.8 million people who suffer from asthma in the U.S, 4.6 million cases are caused by mold exposure at home.
- You can’t safely DIY. Attempting to address a mold problem yourself is not only ineffective, it can sometimes be harmful. Without a working knowledge of the types of mold and the way it grows, getting too close and ingesting spores can lead directly to a medical issue. Without the proper equipment and safety protocols, your safety is at risk if you try treating mold without professional help. Our professionals not only have the appropriate training necessary to deal with hazardous mold, they also have years of experience identifying and remediating problem areas. We have the proper equipment and safety gear to protect our bodies from hazardous substances.
- Quick fixes don’t work. A quick fix such as getting rid of a carpet can lead to worse infestations. For example, when pulling up flooring, the spores can spread everywhere and create new colonies of mold. Attempting to cover the mold with paint doesn’t get rid of the issue. In fact, it just prevents you from being able to see the spread to accurately treat the area. It may be tempting to attack mold with harsh chemical cleaners, but that leaves the possibility of the mold growing back with a vengeance.
