Mold is a fungus that appears in damp areas and with little light, causing unsightly stains on the walls. But it is not the worst, but this organism is also harmful to health, causing allergies and respiratory problems. Therefore, it is essential to know how to clean a damp wall effectively to control it and prevent it from coming out again.
We should note that moisture is difficult to remove. It is usually the result of a problem that can affect the structure of the house, such as a leaky pipe or a crack where water seeps. Therefore, once the visible damage has been removed (marks, stains, paint chipping…, it is very important to check that the wall structure has not been damaged. You also have to pay attention to the furniture, since mold and humidity appear in any organic material. Therefore, it is important to check that the elements that are next to the wall have not been damaged.
How to clean damp in the house
To eliminate humidity from the home, it is necessary to locate the areas where mold is present and protect the surfaces near the affected part. For this, we cover the floor and other surfaces with plastic that is fixed with adhesive tape. This is because the people in charge of mold removal will use chemicals that could damage a piece of furniture or parquet if we don’t protect them.
Once the cleaning ground is prepared, we used the cleaning products in a diffuser and left to act to later rinse off the remains. With using strong chemicals, it is especially important to ventilate the room and wear masks.
If the damp stain has disappeared, now it will only take a little paint to make the wall look like new. You can even use anti-humidity paint to avoid problems in the future.
What happens if we don’t clean the moisture?
The negative effects of humidity on health are very important. If we are talking about babies, the elderly, and people with respiratory problems, such as allergies or asthma.
Excess humidity in the environment can become the cause of contracting respiratory diseases, such as asthma or sinusitis. It is also causing discomfort, chills, tiredness, and even difficulty breathing. These lung diseases and symptoms caused by humidity are relatively “mild” if we compare it even with bronchitis, which could affect us if we don’t solve it right away. Humidity becomes the perfect habitat for mites and other microorganisms, which is why allergies can arise with a tendency to become chronic. In addition, if any of the inhabitants of the house suffer from rheumatism, the pain could increase.
We must take special care not to allow moisture to accumulate. The same goes for areas such as the bathroom, window frames, the kitchen, or basements.
Cleaning out moisture is not a job to be taken lightly. It is a meticulous process professionals must carry out to prevent moisture stains from returning. In addition, the use of specialized products also requires that they be handled by experts. Meeting the maximum safety and professionalism of the work
