Mold is most common outdoors during the summer and fall seasons, but can grow indoors at any time of the year. Leaks in windows, doors, and flooding can cause mold to appear virtually anywhere in a home. Allergy Asthma Technology’s new dehumidifiers and mold sprays can get rid of mold and the components that create it, along with preventing it from reappearing.
The ingredients for mold are moisture and oxygen, although warm climates tend to allow mold to grow more successfully than cold climates. However, mold can still be found in cold, damp environments, such as basements. Mold can grow on almost any type of surface. When mold appears in homes it is most likely from moisture leaking into the house from roofs, windows, doors, pipes, and flooding.
Mold can dangerously affect a person’s health along with causing strong odors. The health effects range from mild to severe, depending on a person’s immune system and the allergies that they have. It also depends on the type of mold and the amount of exposure a person has received. If a person has a severe reaction to mold, they should immediately reduce exposure to it. If avoidance is not obtainable, Allergy Asthma Technology’s allergy masks are made to filter out the incoming air by removing such particles before a person breathes it.
If mold does appear in one’s home, Allergy Asthma Technology’s Mold Sprays will get rid of mold stains. The AllerTech Mold & Mildew Stain Remover sprays on mold spots, no matter what type of surface, and instantly starts working to remove mold. For the best results, the AllerTech Mold & Mildew Stain Preventer should be sprayed on the area once the stain remover dries in order to prevent mold from reappearing. The stain preventer can also be used before mold appears in places where mold is common and it will work to prevent mold form appearing. The spray lasts for six months, so high maintenance is not needed.
Another way to prevent mold from appearing is to reduce the amount of moisture in a given room. This is especially important in bathrooms where the amount of moisture is great. Allergy Asthma Technology’s dehumidifiers can be placed in rooms to retract moisture from the air and prevent the growth of mold. The dehumidifier works in smaller rooms and captures excess moisture in the atmosphere and transfers it to a container below. The filter is natural, no electricity needed, therefore it operates silently. To measure exactly how much humidity is in a certain room, the AcuRite Humidity & Temperature Comfort Monitor will reveal the amount of indoor humidity. This helps individuals keep humidity levels low to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
