Middletown mold cleaning

Many young couples become ecstatic over their first home purchase. However, mold growth in your new home can become a mood killer, as well as a frustrating experience. A home should be inspected thoroughly before purchased; most molds are hidden, due to the conditions in which it thrives.

Where does mold grow?

If your home already has furniture, the mold may grow behind couches, in water heater closets that have had leaks, in crawlspaces or attics, or behind refrigerators and dishwashers. Mold can also grow behind sheetrock or wallpaper if there was a water leak from a pipe in the wall.

The first signs of mold

Many people believe mold growth may be in their home due to their allergic reactions in their home atmosphere. Many of these reactions include sneezing, coughing, swelling and/or sore eyes, a runny nose, nasal congestion, or an upper respiratory infection. Mold can have a musty or old, rotten smell. Visible mold can form in patches that look like dirt or small spots. It can be black, white, gray, or green, depending on the type and strain. Many people ignore mold growth because they don’t realize what it is or they don’t want to deal with it. Experts in Middletown mold cleaning will stress the importance of maintaining a sealed area so mold spores won’t spread. They will also stress the importance of wearing proper PPE uniforms, masks, gloves, and using the right antimicrobial growth solutions so mold will be removed and stay away.
