When you decide to embark on cleaning surface mold from your wood furniture, the process can be very simple as long as you know what to look for and what products to use. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your outdoor chairs or bringing out wooden furniture from storage, you may find that they have developed some surface mold. This is normal because mold and mildew can easily form when wood is located near or in a source of moisture typical to storage facilities and the outdoors.

Making the decision to restore your wooden furniture starts with a simple step: leaving it out to dry. This is an important step because you want to give the wood as much time to dry out after being in an enclosed, moist environment. Also, this will ensure the mold will not grow any further since it cannot grow on wood which has a moisture content of 20% and lower.

What Wood Can I Clean?

Typically, it is better if you are only cleaning mold off smaller items like chairs, tables or ornaments. Larger items like buildings or barns have a greater threat of causing harm to you, so it is best to stay clear of attempting to rid those structures of mold and rather leaving it to the professionals. A restoration company would be an ideal place to start

Cleaning Process

Use Protection

While handling any harmful bacteria you should always start by getting the necessary protection materials like rubber gloves, goggles and a mask.

Spray, don’t Scrub

Because the majority of mold that is present on wood is fungal spores, if you scrub at it intensely this will only release the spores into the air and consequently into your lungs. It is better to spray the mold before removing.

Choosing Your Cleaning Products

Bleach is a great tool for removing mold from wood, and a good ratio is to use 10 parts water to 1 part bleach. You can also find readily available mold-removal kits sold at your local hardware store.

Ventilate the Area

Even if you are using natural cleaning products, you should make sure you are in a well-ventilated area when performing the cleaning. The reason for this is because while cleaning the mold spores may be released into the air.

During the summer time many home owners and apartment renters are faced with the choice of whether to go with a window air conditioner or a portable one. The most popular choice for many reasons is the window air conditioner. But did you know that because of the condensed water, the air conditioners run the risk of forming mold? There are many restoration companies who will help you in this situation by completely eradicating the threat of mold or mildew; however you can also attempt it yourself.

 

Here’s a quick guide to getting rid of mold from window air conditioners:

Tools Required:

Vacuum, cloths, screwdriver, new air filter, long skinny brush, simple container, oil can, air conditioner cleaner spray

11 Step Method:

  1. Replace disposable filters with new one or if the filter is reusable, soak for 20 minutes in detergent and then dry.
  2. Remove grill from the air conditioner by pulling it out of place. Depending on your model, you may have to remove a few screws to get the grill loosened. Be sure to place any screws you use in the container for easy access when you’re putting the unit back together.
  3. Take off the metal cover which will allow you to see the inner part of the air conditioner.
  4. Make sure there are no oil plugs or holes.
  5. Add 1 to 2 drops of oil (general purpose) to each side of the motors body.
  6. Using your long skinny brush, skim off any dust or dirt from the fins in an up and downward motion. Be careful not to damage.
  7. Spray your air conditioner spray (found at hardware stores) on the unit and let stand for 20 minutes.
  8. Pour warm water onto fins to remove any excess dirt but do not let the water get to the electrical system! If you bent the fins during this step, simply bend them back into place gently.
  9. Wipe the blades gently with your cloth, trying not to bend the blades while doing this.
  10. Vacuum all surfaces of the air conditioner, paying attention to the grill and underside.

Let water drain in base. Leave for a few hours and then test your air conditioner. If there are any issues or the air conditioner is rattling, realign the unit and make sure all screws are in place.

When you think of mold, the obvious location where it is usually found comes to mind; basements, attics, bathrooms and windows. While these are all very common places one can find mold, it is important not to overlook some other non-common places. Travelling abroad or even within the country, we tend to have checklists, itineraries, clothing lists, and all the fun stuff. But most of us regret to see that mold can be present on our travels. Knowing where you can possibly come into contact with mold while travelling is very beneficial to both you and your family. If you know the places to look out for, you are less prone to developing an illness as a result of exposure.

Rental Cars:

Travelling often involves rental a vehicle so that you can get from place to place and while car rental agencies in North America are very meticulous with their cleaning procedures, it doesn’t do harm to check the vehicle yourself before signing any papers. Also, if you find yourself in a country where it has been raining or hot, this information is invaluable. Because mold thrives in dark, warm, and damp conditions, mold spots can appear overnight and be invisible below or in the carpets.  If you’ve left the car standing overnight in a damp region, check for any unusual smells as this is usually a giveaway of mold formation.

Hotel Rooms:

Hotel rooms offer the perfect breeding grounds for mold because cleaning staff usually have a checklist of places to clean within the hotel room and checking for mold is typically not on that list. When you arrive in your hotel room, before unpacking, check the obvious places like bathrooms, carpets, walls (behind beds), sinks, cupboards and windows for any signs of mold. If you find anything that alludes to mold growth, you should immediately contact the hotel manager and request a new room. Even if you’re only staying for one night, exposure can still be damaging to your health, especially for young children.

Campers & Trailers

Because campers and trailers spend great time outdoors, they are highly susceptible to mold growth. If you’re travelling in a camper or trailer for a long period of time, it is crucial that you firstly check for signs before renting the vehicle. Also, make sure to keep any organic or cellulose based foods off of surfaces like wood and upholstery because if it remains for more than 24 hours, the dampness it can cause creates a great potential for mold.

Tents

Because most of us don’t go camping 365 days of the year in a tent, they spend most of their time in the attic or basement in storage. So before you pack the tent in the car, make sure to check for any signs of mold which may have grown on the fabric while it was being stored. Don’t worry, you don’t have to go out and buy a new tent just yet, you can remove the mold easily with household bleach since it kills the spores and bleaches any food or beverages spills.

Travelling is always a great experience that should be enjoyed with family and friends. Don’t let mold issues get in the way and spoil your trip. Use these tips to look out for mold wherever you may find yourself.

Understanding the different classifications of mould can help you to determine whether or not a professional eye is needed. Mould is organized into three different groups that are categorized by the effect they have on humans. Though some mould may be more severe than others, it does not discount the severity of mould as a whole, and what it can do to your health if not controlled.

Allergenic mould aggravates allergies and usually do not cause any serious health effects other than discomfort. Most people who are encounter this kind of mould, are already prone to allergies and/or have asthma. Symptoms can consist of itchy eyes and throat, and maybe a slight rash. When the seasons change, mould grows on vegetation outside that is decomposing from the winter, and mould spores can enter the lungs causing a reaction.

Pathogenic mold is when a reaction to mould turns into an infection. Normally a person with capable health can naturally fight off these infections, but people with immune system problems, young children, and infants can become sick easily. These kinds of mould can cause pneumonitis, which is inflammation of the lungs. Bipolaris, a kind of Pathogenic mould, usually can be found outside on plants and in the soil. It has brownish black consistency that sometimes can be difficult to spot, given its location.

The last kind of mold, toxic mold, can be tricky to categorize. Most people associate black mould with being toxic, and although this is true in many cases, not all toxic mould is black and not all black mold is toxic. Toxic mold produces what is known as Mycotoxins, and is poisonous to humans and animals. Though usually there is some kind of mould in most homes, it does not mean it is toxic mould. Many times, the only way to be absolutely sure is to send a sample to the lab using a trained specialist. However, just because mould is not toxic, it does not mean that your home is safe. Penicillium is an example of a toxic mold and its spores contain the highest concentration of mycotoxins. Aspergillus is another type of toxic mould that with overexposure can cause damage to the brain, heart, kidneys, and be especially detrimental to the liver. Stachybotrys is a slimy mold that does not transfer its spores through the air as effectively as other molds. Because of this, and its inability to compete with other bacteria, it is difficult to obtain a sample. It tends to be the most frequent of toxic moulds because it grows quickly, and it can thrive on a small amount of moisture.

When it comes to mould there are simple step you can take to keep the environment around you as safe as possible, and mould free. Though some practices may seem time consuming, ultimately they are vital in the aversion of potentially dangerous and hazardous material.
Here are some at home procedures you can implement:

● Determine the level of mould. Having the affected areas and the rooms testing, allows you to understand the severity and the type of mold you are dealing with. Trying to tackle a job without knowing what is required for proper remediation procedure can allow the mold to continue to grow. If it looks like black mould, is a large area, or is caused by a leak from sewage, then consult a professional immediately.

● Use the right equipment. Before you even start to treat Mould, make sure that you have everything you need. A face mask will protect mould spores from entering your lungs, which can cause illness. Sealed goggles are needed to protect the eyes, and rubber gloves are also a must considering you may be using harsh chemicals. Make sure the gloves are strong, and will not disintegrate when interacting with mixed materials.

● Find the source of moisture, and eliminate it. This is what helps mould to thrive, and will accelerate its growth to an unsafe level. Check faucets, plumbing, and any leaks and bring them to standard. If you can’t find the origin of a leak, trying calling a professional to determine if there is an issue that requires further scrutiny.

● Clean the actual mold you can see. Using soapy water is an easy and effective way to kill mould. Give the area a thorough scrubbing and when finished, dry the area effectively. This works best on a hard service that won’t be affected by the solution. Furniture and drywall may have to be replaced.

● Take out the garbage. There may be some things that unfortunately you can’t save from mould, in which case you need to dispose of them. Many fabrics and porous materials could be difficult to clean. If you have something that is sentimental, like grandma’s old armoire, call a specialist to see what your options are. The rest of it belongs in the trash.

● Call a professional if you are unsure. In some cases, simply home procedures may not be effective in preventing and remedied mould. If you are experiencing any symptoms similar to allergies, asthma, or if you even have a rash, this could be caused by an unsafe amount of mould in your home. Call a medical professional to be absolutely sure, and always scout around your home for potential growth. Mould loves porous damp areas, and can destroy things like drywall, insulation, and furniture, which can cost thousands to repair and replace.

You can see that the damages are just truly extensive and devastating. Our Teams are working around the clock to minimize the damages as much and possible and to prevent mold growth. They will start by pumping this water out, installing drying equipment and removing the wet materials and contents. This will be followed by an extensive cleaning and disinfection process: as the longer the water remains in the homes of Calgary the more contaminated it will become. The scene in Calgary is just completely heart wrenching and the damages are immense and widespread and our hearts and thoughts go out to the people affected by the floods in Calgary and to the families that have lost loved ones due to the floods in Calgary.

Water Damage in Calgary

The flood of June 2013 that hit Calgary by storm left many in the city under evacuation notice due to the severity of the storm. It put a very disturbing image in the head of everyone that lives there or is from the area. Actual pictures of the storm playing out remained as a display of the saddening damage. Furthermore, reports of bodies being found dead because of the flood have left many in heart break.

The city has remained high in spirit throughout the entire storm. However, it can be depressing to return to the downtown of Calgary and see just how much the weather had affected businesses and homeowners. Even the Calgary Stampede grounds had fell victim to the terrible storm, with 10 rows of seating being totally covered with water. Water damage and restoration are both extensive with respect to the arena and it is expected that the city will have the flood clean up and repairs finished in time for the Calgary Stampede, which is booked for only two weeks after the heart of the storm.

Flooded Basements In Calgary Residences

Residential properties throughout the heart of Calgary and surrounding areas have experienced some serious flood damage. Flooded basements are especially noticeable in areas that are just West of Stampede Park. In some cases, even flooded attics have occurred. The flooded basements come as a major concern though, as issues caused by the water damage and restoration process can become costly and problematic for homeowners.

Calgary was also not the place that civilians believed to be at high risk of being flooded at any time. Due to this fact, many homeowners may not have any form of flood coverage on their home insurance policy. This is especially discerning as many are looking at repairs that may be outside of their realm of affordability and some may have even lost everything they own as a result of the damage.

Hiring Restoration Services For  The Calgary Flood Clean Up

For many individuals, this was not your average flood and the damage incurred is much more severe than typical water damage from a flooded basement. This makes it incredibly important for homeowners to treat the damage as the city treated the storm, by considering it as an emergency situation.

Home owners are being told to begin looking for emergency restoration companies so they can bring their homes back to normal and safe living condition. Flooded basements can lead to damage throughout the home that can be nearly irreparable and extremely expensive. If you have fallen victim to the Calgary flood, then you should contact one of the many restoration service companies immediately.  Acting on the issue immediately will allow you to ensure a flood restoration company can handle your problem sooner than later, as many are going through the same horrors as you right now.
