Bio Clean of Utah, a mold removal Ogden Utah company, has stressed the importance of mold removal guidelines. The company offers mold inspection, mold testing, and mold removal services in Ogden and neighboring areas. Mold removal is vital because molds produce allergens and irritants that can cause hay fever and other symptoms, as well as worsen asthma attacks. There are also many toxic molds, such as the black mold, that produce toxic substances known as mycotoxins that can cause various health problems like pulmonary hemorrhage. Meanwhile, certain guidelines must be followed in mold removal because performing the process of removing them could cause the mold spores to be airborne and these could get into the lungs of people and cause health problems.
“Mycotoxins interfere with cell structures and processes, and have the potential to cause serious health issues,” says Daryl Olsen, president of Bio Clean of Utah. He adds, “Symptoms include pulmonary hemorrhage, headaches and other flu-like symptoms, nose bleeds, immune system suppression, hair loss, chronic fatigue, psychological depression, diarrhea, sore throats and dermatitis. That is why mold removal as soon as possible is recommended. But please don't attempt to touch the mold contaminated areas or do the removal yourself because it is dangerous. Certain mold removal guidelines must be followed.”
There are many other symptoms resulting from exposure to mold or its spores. These include blurred vision, chest pains, shortness of breath, burning eyes, respiratory illness, dry cough, wheezing, nasal congestion, cognitive disorder, and aggravated asthma.
The first thing that homeowners and property owners can do if they notice signs of mold in the home is to get the services of mold inspection and testing professionals. For those who have molds in their property or believe there is mold because the conditions conducive for the growth of mold are present, it is recommended that they request for a mold inspection. Experts from Bio Clean of Utah will go to the site and conduct an inspection, taking into consideration the history of the property, the moisture source, current dampness, contaminated materials, and areas suspected to be contaminated. They will use a number of moisture detection devices to help in the inspection.
Since mold spores are not visible to the naked eye, mold testing may be necessary. Testing will also be used to measure and document the varieties of mold in the air and their quantities. The information obtained can help in specifying the kind of mold remediation that is needed for a particular home or property. Mold testing will also be needed to document the results of mold removal and provide proof that the previously contaminated area has become clean and safe.
Molds thrive in temperatures between 65 degrees and 85 degrees Fahrenheit, especially in places where there is warm humid air. Molds also like places where there is organic matter that they can use for food, such as paper, wood, paneling, drywall, and ceiling tiles. The decaying organic jute backing of carpets can also provide an ideal environment for mold reproduction. The areas and substances that black mold can often be found include water soaked wood, wall paneling, ceiling tiles cardboard, and things made of cotton. Black mold can also grow on insulation and drywall, walls, floors, and ceilings.
Based on the recommendations from various organizations that have published guidelines on mold removal, Bio Clean of Utah has established a list of the mold removal guidelines that they follow when providing their services. These include the recommendation for rapid drying of water intrusion to prevent mold growth; that there should be no fungal contamination of interior surfaces; that area or building evacuation may be needed before remediation; and that the remediation work should be done in unoccupied areas.
Bio Clean of Utah is a recipient of the 2018 Expertise Award for Best Damage Restoration Companies in Salt Lake City and it expects to receive the same type of award in 2019.
