Bathroom mold in San Jose, Ca
A mother of two young children contacted us because of a mold concern. Here is her story:
“Mold is growing on the sheet rock in my bathroom. I’ve sprayed it down with bleach and cleaning solution a number of times, but it always seems to grow right back”! It measures about 25 sq ft in total. My husband says he can cut out the affected sheet rock and hang new sheet rock, but I’m afraid of he and my children getting sick. What should we do?
According to EPA Guidelines, what type of Containment and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are suggested to remediate 25 sq feet of mold?
There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. They can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods – this is why when you leave open bread on a counter, it begins to become moldy in a few days. Mold is a part of our everyday environment.
