toxic mold testing, moldy. Everybody makes mistakes.

Well, usually not professional contractors, or else they don't last long in the business.

When deciding to do your own mold remediation unless you read otherwise you're bound to make some of the following mistakes.

Read in advance some common errors and why they don't work.

1. Too much artillery.

Many make the biggest mistake possible by bringing more and more bleach into the situation. While bleach can be helpful in cleaning, it is potentially dangerous and not a lot of it is necessary. Don't believe that by spraying a lot of bleach or cleanser that the mold is going to be that much more massacred.

The objective is to clean the area and to remove the mold from the surface. Killing the mold with lots of bleach instead of actually cleaning the area may be counter-productive. Even if you kill the mold off, it may still be on the surface, dead and still toxic.

2. Buying strange devices rather than cleaning.

While buying an air cleaner is a good idea in combating dirty particles, it will not kill mold that is already growing and sustaining itself on moisture. One other popular treatment is the use of ozone, whether by small electronic ozone cleaner or a full tent treatment of a building. Tests show that ozone is not a reliable method of killing mold or even of purifying air, since according to the EPA, (Environmental Protection Agency) ozone can be a lung irritant in its own right.

3. Coming unprepared for battle.

Some people don't like the idea of wearing respirators, goggles and gloves while handling mold. It makes them look silly, perhaps. Instead they prefer to catch a cold, exascerbate their allergies, cause respiratory irritation and leave themselves susceptible to toxic inhalations. The truth is mold can be dangerous.

People and corporations have been sued because people have mistakenly been exposed to mold activity that left them feeling ill. You may be able to work uncovered without noticing much of a difference-but your body will know. When dealing with potentially toxic material, you should always wear gloves (at the very least, to protect you from the bleach) and other headgear to protect your eyes and nose.

Everybody makes mistakes when dealing with something new and potentially hazardous. Thankfully, people are willing learn from their mistakes and share this newfound information with others.
