Mildew Removal & This just in, some molds are DELICIOUS!

Mildew Removal News – This is a touchy subject for many people out there. Especially people in the Indoor Air Quality field. There are good reasons for it too.

What are those reasons?

  1. 1.Mold spores in the air DO contribute to respiratory irritation.
  2. 2.Growing mold on building materials WILL weaken the structural integrity of that material.
  3. 3.Mold WILL cause irritation of a number of different allergic conditions and asthmatic complications.

These, among others are reason enough to clean up a mold issue in your home. But its important to remember that it doesn’t matter what the species of the particular mold growing is

So, why do I say that some molds are delicious? Well, its partly a joke, but the other part is to say that not all molds will kill you. I mean seriously, the media has hyped mold up to be a deadly threat that you should be completely petrified of. So, not all molds are that dangerous. Actually, at the risk of being wrong in some bizarre instance, I’m going to say that there is NO mold out there that you see once and drop dead from.

All that in consideration now, lets talk about what is dangerous. Leaving a mold problem for years on end without addressing the situation is dangerous. Sorry, thats just the way it is. And no, it doesn’t matter what type of mold is growing.

I know, I know, I just said that not all molds are going to kill you, right? Well, unfortunately the first statements on this blog still are true. Mold, if left unchecked will start to get to you. So you need to consult a mold professional. Just don’t start panicking the minute you see some fuzz on the wall. Keep it all in perspective and look at it this way, Yes there’s a problem, yes its being taken care of, and yes, my family is safe.

Hope that makes sense to you guys.

Some examples of delicious molds include morel, portabella, shiitake, oyster, and truffles. Unfortunately, the likelihood of you finding these growing in your attic are very, very slim.  You’re more likely to be in a mildew removal situation.
