—— Question 10: What Are Some Common Misconceptions With Mold? ——

 Nearly everyone has their own interpretation of what mold is and does, but there are some common misconceptions when it comes to the impact of mold. We have gathered some of the more frequent misconception that we hear on a regular basis.

Bleach Kills Mold: Many homeowners use bleach as a cheap alternative to remove mold from their homes, but the reality is that bleach only has the ability to kill live mold and not mold spores. Leaving mold spores behind will allow mold to regrow even faster than the original source. The US environmental protection agency has ruled that bleach ineffective to the mold remediation process and homeowners should avoid using it.

I Shouldn’t Worry About Small Mold Spots:  Even the smallest mold spot can grow into a larger issue if not address correctly.  Mold can spread on organic surfaces, and if your home has heating & ventilation, you can be sure that it will grow at a faster rate. Make sure to address the smallest mold issue before it becomes problem that could cost you more than a trip to the hardware store.

I Can remove the Mold Myself: Every homeowner wants to save money by fixing anything in their home by themselves, but there are some things you should be left to the professionals.  While you may be able to remove some of the mold by yourself, you are going to miss some mold and it will regrow back. Another reason you should hire a professional is because some mold can be toxic and harmful to your health, our team have the right equipment to handle mold so you do not have to risk your health.

Every Mold Type is Toxic: While a good amount of mold types can be harmful to your health if exposed for too long.  There are multiple types of mold within the natural environment that break down organic material, allowing other organisms to grow.
