Removing Mold from Books

Student thinking

Mold grows in many places often hidden for long periods of time before it gets discovered. It might surprise you to know that mold can also grow inside of books if they are exposed to the right temperature and humidity. If the book has a musty odor to it, there is a good chance it has been exposed to mold.

Identifying Mold

Mold will grow anywhere and on anything as long as there is a source of food and moisture. You will notice spots that look like spider webs or fuzzy. These are mold and they will begin to grow on any porous surface that has organic materials for them to feed on. In books, mold gravitates towards the paper which is easily deteriorated and turned into a food source.

Preventing Mold

Any books that have mold must be removed from your storage and placed in a sealed plastic bag. Humidity must be brought under control in the room where the books are being stored. This may mean moving them to another area or buying a dehumidifier for the room that they are in. This will prevent the mold from getting the moisture it needs to grow and spread. Make sure the room is properly ventilated so mold doesn’t have the chance to rest on things and grow.

Mold Contamination

If you believe that the mold in your books has led to a larger contamination of mold in your home, you will need to call a professional like Water Damage Zone. Large areas of mold should not be dealt with on your own. Professionals are the only ones who have the equipment and knowledge to eliminate large mold infestations and prevent them from occurring again. Remember, you’re saving yourself money in the long-run by eliminating mold the right way, the first time around.

Indoor Air Contaminated by Floodwater

87718510

If your home floods the first thing you’re going to be doing is getting all the water out of your home. The thing that you may not think about is how polluted the air is inside of the house. If contaminated materials aren’t removed from the area, then moisture will continue to cause problems.

Standing Water

If water is left alone for any period it can begin to breed bacteria and mold. These pollutants don’t stay confined to the water either. Once they have started to grow in the water they will be released into the air around the water. This can leave individuals with symptoms anywhere from allergic reactions to infectious diseases.

Health Concerns

Microorganisms in the water can become released into the air and cause illness. Also, high humidity and moisture will allow mold to begin to grow and spread. Dust mites may appear in the home as well. The air in the home should be cleansed as soon as possible so that health complications don’t begin to arise in those living in the home.

Removing Water ASAP

The water in your home should be cleared and removed immediately so that bacteria and mold aren’t allowed to form and become airborne. If the water is dirty or the damage is extensive, don’t hesitate to contact professionals like Water Damage Zone. It is unsafe to touch any of the pollution and our professionals have the equipment and training to professionally and quickly remove the water from your home. Time is of the utmost importance in this case, the sooner you remove the water, the less likely you are to encounter health problems.

My Christmas Tree Has Mold! What Do I Do?

As we all know, trees come from the outdoors, so the chances that they have mold spores are most certain. These spores cause allergies and bothersome reactions in many of us. However, you can still enjoy your Christmas tree by following these steps to reduce the amount of mold on it. The mold should be removed before bringing your tree into the home.

Treating a Moldy Tree

Real Christmas trees will need to be treated with a professional grade fungicide. You can get these supplies at a local hardware store. You can also make fungicide by combining 3 tablespoons baking soda, 1 tablespoon bleach, 1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid, and a gallon of water. Stir these together and then put it into a spray bottle. Spray your entire tree outdoors and allow it to completely dry for 24 hours.

Air Purifier

Placing an air purifier in the home will help to keep the air clean and fresh. Air purifiers can be bought in most department stores and hardware stores. They work to extract allergens such as mold spores from the air. This allows you to breathe in clean, healthy air instead of air that is plagued with pollutants. You can leave the air purifier constantly running in the room so that it’s always working to filter your air.

Keeping the Water Mold-Free

The tree is sitting in dormant water which can easily become overrun with mold spores. The best way to prevent this is to add 2 ounces of bleach to the water in the tree’s base. This will prevent mold spores from growing and forming into mold infestations under your Christmas tree. If you are smart about planning your Christmas tree you can ensure that your family won’t be dealing with any annoying allergies indoors this winter season.
