The world’s first mold removal procedure was written in the book of Leviticus chapter 14, which is loosely the same protocol we still follow today, where the priest has become the Mold Inspector/Hygienist and, with the added feature of using mold killing products.

Musty crawlspaces are incredibly dangerous when it concerns jeopardizing the body’s immune system and health of the building residents. Why you ask? Initially, in the majority of crawlspaces, the air duct systems runs are stationed throughout the crawlspace location. These air ducts systems draw spores, mocs, and mycotoxins into the air ducts themselves via a phenomena in science called the venturi effect. This effect develops a suction which permits these contaminants to go into the duct through small cracks in the seams of the duct.

Mold Is In The Air Itself: What then happens to these contaminants? They are then dispersed throughout the house or commercial structure into the living space, where they can impact the health of the property owners or developing residents. Because the majority of molds are considered opportunistic pathogens, they can quickly begin to grow in (and on) the bodies of the residents; and they are particularly able to cause harm when the resident is suffering from another health problem or condition that creates anybody immune system stress. This indicates if you have a cold or influenza or are recuperating from surgery, or if you are very old or very young, the mold can attack you and live within you, or feed on your skin! Revolting?

This implies that the mold is most likely growing directly under your feet. That likewise implies that whenever you or somebody else in the home strolls across the floors they are disturbing and spreading this fatal pathogen.

Crawlspace Mold Makes Invisible Poison Gasses: It’s not just the spores themselves you need to stress over. Even the gasses developed by the mold have been connected to poor health and even cancers. These gasses, called MVOC’s are produced by the mold in the crawlspace as a result of the powerful enzymes they make and utilize, to break down the wood from which your home or structure is made.

Stop The Water: What can you do to tidy up the musty crawlspace? Well primarily mold only grows in crawlspaces because the humidity and water in the crawlspaces have created an environment where the mold can spontaneously sprout and thrive. When the humidity in a home or crawlspace raises above the 60% level in a home, mold has the capability to self sprout as long as the temperature level is between 35-100 degrees Fahrenheit, and, provided, there is a spore and a food source, like wood or paper.

Kill The Mold: Next, you need to kill the mold. The issue with this is that over 95% of the commercial fungicides (mold killers) sold on the marketplace today and utilized by mold specialists, won’t deal with wood or porous substrates and does not eliminate the spores (mold seeds).

Kill The Roots: The single most misinterpreted part of comprehensive mold removal and mold tidy up has got to be, eliminating the roots. Most professional mold tidy up contractors are horrible at what the do because they do not understand this single thing. When we envision mold, we normally think about the fuzzy stuff we can see growing on bread or cheese or something similar. When we see the very same thing growing on drywall or wood in our houses, we are inclined to believe that the fuzzy discoloration is the mold itself.

Eliminate The Invisible Spores: The final essential step in getting rid of a mold issue is to get the undetectable spores (mold seeds) that are in the hard to reach spaces. Nooks and crannies and crevices that all buildings have, require to be dealt with, considering that the liquid-based chemicals, even when fogged, can never permeate them. This is where utilizing a gas out as the final step, becomes vital. Scientists working at Los Alamos National Laboratory, long ago, showed that the only way to remove mold from a building is to fill the building loaded with gas at the end of a series of treatments, to get the hidden mold spores.

To recap: First, kill the mold. Second, erase the discolorations. Third, eliminate the roots. Finally, kill the spores and carry out a gas out.
