Control Mold When Using Air Conditioning

12/3/2018 (Permalink)

Exposure to mold in a home can be hazardous, leading to any number of adverse health effects, including respiratory distress. Certain strains of mold may release mycotoxins, which can cause bleeding in the lungs and pneumonia.

Mold can grow in any dark and damp spot, which makes air conditioning units prime locations for mold proliferation. Mold spores can be circulated through a home via a central air conditioning system or window air conditioning unit. Mold spores in the air are very easy to inhale, especially for young children and elderly people.

Air conditioners also are susceptible to mold growth. Preventing mold from becoming a problem means being in tune to indicators that mold may be present, and then taking the necessary actions to eradicate that mold and preventing future growth.

Visible mold or a musty smell when operating the air conditioner are prime indicators of a problem. If anyone suspects mold has infiltrated their air conditioning system, consider these tips.

Keep equipment clean – Routinely clean dirt and debris out of air conditioning ducts and equipment. Pay special attention to organic matter, such as dirt that may come in from outdoors.

Eliminate water sources – Standing water presents an ideal breeding ground for mold. If there is excess water present in or around the system, have the AC unit serviced.

Change the filter – Many manufacturers recommend change an HVAC filters and window unit filters once every three months at a minimum. This can prevent mold growth and reduce allergens like dust and dirt that circulate through the air.

Clean up the mold – Homeowners may be able to clean up a minor mold problem, but larger issues are best left to a professional. Exposure to mold can put a person and the entire household at risk, especially if mold spores are disrupted. Air conditioning repair companies and mold-removal specialists are better equipped to clean and contain mold. If a homeowner cleans a window unit, they should make sure that all components are completely dry before reassembling the parts. Damp conditions can lead to more mold.

Air conditioning can be a life-saver during the summer. But men and women must make sure mold doesn’t become a problem while their AC systems are in use.

Commercial Put Some Clean In Your Life! Clean desks lead to more productivity, more productivity leads to raises, raises lead to island vacations!

Tips and tricks to help declutter your office.      

Divide Your Workplace Into Zones: Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.

Keep Only What You Need At Arm's Length: Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you've established for them.

Create A Daily Paper System: Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled "To Read", "To Do", and "To File". Establish set days for each, so that you don't get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.

Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.

Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files - with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.

Disinfect Regularly: Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

Flood Damage Cleanup

8/15/2018 (Permalink)

Restoring your home or business after a flood is a difficult job. Depending on the severity of the flood, you may have to deal with structural damage, electrical damage, and potential health hazards. Before you begin dealing with flood cleanup, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have the time?

Time is crucial factor in a flood damage restoration project. The longer your belongings stay in water, the worse the damage will be. Any area that is not dried thoroughly within 24 hours may have long-term mold problems. Can you afford to take several days or weeks off work to clean contaminated water and mud out your home? Once the water is removed, your belongings must be dried and restored. If you hire a professional flood restoration company, you can focus on getting your personal life back to normal faster as the flood damage in your home will be  taken care of.

  • Do you have the expertise?

Flood damage cleanup is a multi-stage process. First, the floodwater must be pumped out and the area thoroughly dried. During this process, you will need to mitigate safety concerns due to the weakened structure of your home. There will also be health hazards as you will have to deal with bacteria and mold. You will have to decide which of your possessions can be saved and what must be thrown away. Only then can you begin the actual flood repair work to make your home livable again.

  • Do you want to do the work?

Flood damage cleanup is dirty, often hazardous work. After the flood incident is over, do you want to face the job of cleaning contaminated water and mud out of your home, then sort through your possessions to see what can be saved? The emotional impact of flood cleanup can be significant, and can interfere with other aspects of your life. Hiring a professional to do flood damage restoration is an investment in your mental and emotional health.
