Mold damage is a common problem, affecting millions of people in the United States each year. It’s more than just a vague bad smell. Mold damage can affect your health and well-being, causing serious health problems like breathing issues and immune system weakness. If you have mold damage, it’s important to have it properly cleaned up and removed, to prevent future problems.
Step 1:The Identifying and stopping the source of moisture
Have you noticed the dark, musty, damp and damply odorous air in your home? Mold is a problem that is growing in prevalence. While this fungus may be hidden in your walls, floors and ceilings, and can cause irritation and allergies, it should not be ignored. Mold is easily spread and without proper attention, it can wreak havoc on your life and the people around you.
Step 2: Setting up containment
Step 2: Setting up containment is a set of four videos created by Veritas Prep, an organization that does not have a website, but does have an online store. The videos do not seem to be owned by a person or entity. The Step 2: Setting up containment curriculum is sold by the Veritas Prep store and each video is $5.
Step 3: Establishing negative air
Step 3: Establishing negative air discusses the negative air space that exists around a ventilation system, and examines how this space can be used to prevent the build-up of humidity. The subject of negative air space is a fairly common one, but in this article I’ll cover only the most essential principles and leave the more detailed aspects for a future article.
Step 4: Removing contaminated building materials and contents
After you have removed the contaminated contents, it is time to inspect the building for any new contamination that may have made its way in. This can often happen when a contamination event is small, like a hidden leak in a basement. Or it can happen when a contamination event is large and obvious such as a fire. Either way, it is likely that the contaminated building materials will be the source of the next contamination event.
Step 5: Cleaning surfaces
The first step to a healthier home is to clean your home. From the outside, your house is just a collection of materials and a cover. It is your responsibility to maintain a clean interior. Make sure that your floors have been scrubbed, your walls have been painted, your windows have been washed, and your ceilings have been dusted. If you do not know how to begin cleaning, you can use this guide to learn the basics.
Step 6: Drying the affected area(s)
There is a lot of information out there about what to do when you burn yourself, but not as much about what to do after the incident. Follow these steps and you will be wise to your burns and what to do in the future.
Step 7: Conducting post
Part of Step 7: Conducting post is a series of posts that go over some of the more in-depth aspects of conducting a post. This post will take you through what I call the “mesh” of a good post: the parts of the process that make a post go from good to great.
