Why You Should Not DIY Mold Removal

Mold Removal Services in Raleigh, NC

The idea of finding mold in your residential or commercial property can be a scary thought. If you do find mold it may be your first instinct to clean and disinfect the area where the mold is spotted, but in many cases that may not be enough. A mold removal job that is not done completely can lead to complications and further damage down the road. Whenever you find or suspect mold in your property it is important to find a mold removal company you can trust to get the job done and treat your property as if it was their own. APR Restoration offers 24/7 emergency services and can get started right away to return your home to the clean and healthy environment it once was before mold settled in. Here are some things to consider when wondering why working with mold removal specialists is the right choice.

Experience

Having trained and experienced professionals work on your mold removal tasks can have many benefits. Rather than spending time learning how to remove mold and potentially needing to do the task multiple times to ensure it is possibly done right can waste a lot of time. This can make your mold removal process take longer than it should. Experienced professionals can also mitigate loss, repairing and restoring items you thought you would have to get rid of with mold exposure. Mold removal will go much smoother with a team of experienced professionals on hand that can assess the damage and get right to work. 

Equipment

Rather than spending a fortune on the appropriate gear, tools, and equipment you would need to remove mold and restore your property, you can hire a team of specialists who will come prepared with all the tools and equipment needed to get the job done right. This will allow your money to be spent more efficiently and not leave you with a bunch of equipment you may never need to use again. 

The Risks Of Mold Exposure

Though mold can cause a lot of damage to your home or business if not handled properly, it presents a much greater risk than that to your wellbeing. Mold presents those exposed to it with many health risks and should be handled carefully. Some of the health risks associated with mold exposure include:

  • Allergy symptoms- itchy, watery eyes, irritated throat, runny nose
  • Cold and flu-like symptoms
  • Weakened immune system and frequent illness
  • Headaches
  • Brain Fog
  • Skin irritation and rashes
  • Respiratory issues
  • Asthma attacks

Hidden Mold 

If you decide to clean the mold you have found in your property yourself, you will most likely only clean the areas that you can see are affected. Mold travels through the air as mold spores, and can spread rapidly without your knowledge. It can also live in the building materials of your home, in the fibers of your carpets and other fabrics, in your HVAC system, and almost anywhere you can imagine. If you leave even the slightest presence of mold behind when cleaning mold on your own, you open your property up to the threat of further mold damage in the future or even continuing mold damage that is happening in areas you might not see.
