There is a lot of talk lately about mold and its effect on health. Another thing to add to the list of stuff that will kill us. Or are we being played?
Some say it’s bad, some say it’s nothing to worry about. Who’s right? Well, as in most things, you have to consider the source. I’m not an expert on anything (except pressure washing of course) but a little digging around online was eye opening for me. The actual mold experts (scientists, not people who do mold clean-up) say that all of this mold hysteria is unfounded and I think they are right. What could they possibly gain by misrepresenting the issue? I’m not saying that there aren’t situations where mold could present legitimate health concerns, but, maybe they are creating a boogeyman to make money off of.
It reminds me of all the pharmaceutical commercials on TV. You know the ones. “Do you have Itchy Earlobe Syndrome? Ask your Doctor is LobeXefy is right for you”. You’re thinking, “I never really thought about it before, but maybe my earlobes are itchy”. See what I mean?
Heritage Restoration is a pressure washing company. Our business is built upon power washing mold, dirt and grime from windows, vinyl siding, decks, and driveways. But, we aren’t going to jump on the mold-is-going-to-kill-us-all bandwagon. Not cool.
- Mold will make your house look bad.
- If you let it grow without cleaning it, it can mess up the way your siding looks.
- It can annoy your OCD neighbor.
- It might get you in hot water with the Home Owners Association.
But, it probably won’t kill you. 🙂
For those who really need something to worry about…..Ten percent of the weight of a two year old pillow can be composed of dead dust mites and their droppings. How old is your pillow?
