How To Kill Mold Safely!

May 5, 2008
What would you do as soon as you see some molds in the wall or in your shoes that you did not wear for a long time!

The most foolish step would be to clean up the effected area with bare hands. This would be a foolish task as you can not know for sure (without any laboratory test) if the mold is toxic or infectious or not. Irritation and allergic irritation is very common in case you touch black mold. And if you have asthma, a small portion of mold pores that you may inhale in the cleaning process can cause an asthma attack. And there are high chances of molds becoming airborne when you try to clean them up.

This is not all, if you are not careful enough while removing molds from those shoes or your wall, it may spread in other parts of your home. And in the process, if they come in contact with some moist place, they would simply start growing again.

So, is there any need of taking so much of risks?

In minor cases, for example, if you see molds growing up in your shoes or in a cloth, clean it up with a piece of wet cloth and avoid direct contact with your skin. At the same time make sure that your nose is closed or protected with a mask so that you do not breathe in some mold pores. Always perform this in outdoor. If you try to clean them up inside your room, the spores may become airborne and spread inside. After sweeping the mold with wet cloth, do not forget to use some disinfectant cleaner to make it germ free. When the cleaning process is complete, dry it up in open. You must properly wash your hands after the cleaning process is complete.

However, if the situation is bigger, for example, if you have black molds in your room, it is better to ask mold cleaning companies to do the job for you. They are well trained and well equipped to do this job professionally. They are also physically fit to perform this cleaning job.

If you still want to do it yourself, try to follow these steps to ensure your own security. However, if you have asthma or if you are not physically fit to perform the cleaning process, it is not recommended to clean molds yourself. Your local mold cleaning professionals can manage it better than you.

Buy some good quality protective equipments so that you do not get infected from molds. These equipments help you to keep molds away from direct contact with your skin and makes sure that you do not inhale mold spores.

You should select the best equipment depending on the situation. For example, if the amount of molds or airborne pore is too high you should use a mask that has two way valves with HEPA filter cartridge. If you use a full mask there is no need to wear eye care. In other cases, if you use half mask, it is always recommended to use eye wear.

As far as protection clothing is concerned, you can use a disposable one along with gloves. You would get some disposable paper overall to protect your full body and to eliminate direct physical contact with mold.

However, if you want to kill mold at home, you may contact a mold cleaner to do the job for you.
