All About Mold
According to a Harvard University School of Public Health study, over 50% of our homes have indoor mold. And once you have mold spores, it’s incredibly easy for those spores to latch on to a moist surface and multiply. That leaves a lot of families vulnerable to the possible health effects of indoor mold:
- Watery or itchy eyes
- Sore throat
- Skin irritation
- Respiratory problems
In fact, a study at the University of Arizona suggests that mold spores are a suspected cause in the tripling of the asthma rate in the past 20 years. By knowing the facts and all about mold, you can better keep your home and family, safe and healthy.
Typically mold needs three conditions to grow:
- Moisture from humidity, leaks or flooding
- Organic, porous materials like drywall, grout or wallpaper
- Optimal temperature, generally between 18-28 degrees
These elements can create a mold problem that can colonize and multiply quickly in as little as 24-48 hours.
For decades, the answer to mold problems has always been bleach. And although the mold would disappear, it was only weeks before it was back again.
Why? Because bleach isn’t effective against mold on porous surfaces like wood and drywall as it leaves the roots of mold intact and ready to return. That’s why we think it’s time to ditch the bleach.
Concrobium works to effectively crush the mold spores, and remain on the surface to prevent mold. Concrobium Mold Control is the safe way to eliminate mold with no bleach, ammonia or toxic chemicals.
