Some people are iffy on what they consider to be the dangers of mold. Yes, there is talk in the media about how mold can harm the health of humans, but the media is known for exaggeration and for blowing things out of proportion, right? But anyone who has seen professionals engaged in mold removal in PA knows that mold’s dangers aren’t being exaggerated.
When Eco Tech’s mold removal specialists go into a contaminated home or workplace, we wear protective clothing. Depending on the nature of the project and the level of contamination, we may be covered from head to toe. People look at us and say, “Wow – whatever they’re working around must be pretty dangerous!”
And it is, and we know it, and that’s why protecting our field technicians is paramount when they’re engaged in mold removal in PA. So think about it this way: if we go to so much trouble to protect ourselves when working around mold, what is the risk for people who live unprotected with it in their homes and offices every day?
The risk can be very high. From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and most physicians to leading health researchers and every mold remediation company, we’re being warned about the dangers of mold. This is why it’s good practice to have regular mold inspections in your home or workplace.
Mold removal in PA involves many steps, and much care is always taken to prevent the mold from spreading. Mold is capable of becoming airborne, which makes it easy for people to inhale it and otherwise come into contact with it.
Once we’ve secured the contaminated area and begun running air pumps and filtering systems, we then use various tools and equipment to remove mold. And at every step of the way, our certified technicians are fully protected from the harmful substance they’re working so closely with.
When the job is finished and everything is cleaned up and cleared out, we’ve accomplished the biggest part of our task. Another part is educating our customers on how to prevent mold from returning. Human health is important to us, and we want to make sure the homes and offices we work in remain as mold-free as possible.
If there is mold in your home or workplace – or if you even suspect there may be – call Eco Tech today and arrange for an inspection followed by mold removal. PA residents call (610) 710-1414, or you can contact us through our website.
