What is Mold?
Molds are sorts of fungi, micro-organisms that are decomposers of dead organic materials, like wood, plants, and leaves. The spores and hair-like bodies of mold colonies are too little to see with the human eye. They can only be seen with a microscope. When a lot of mold colonies are growing together, they look green, black, or blue.
Normally, molds grow in humid, damp, wet conditions. Although basements and showers areas are vulnerable to mold growth, mold can cultivate in any moist area in your property. Some areas that are susceptible to mold are:
- Flooring Wallpaper/Ceiling Tiles/Paneling
- Plumbing Pipes Areas
Also, mold can come inside from outdoors through open doors, vents, or open windows. Moreover, it can be brought inside by pets, as well as sticking to your clothing or shoes. Besides having a color, mold can have a stale odor.
Ways of Removing Mold From the Air
An air purifier is a good way to get mold from the air. Air purifiers filter mold spores and other allergens from the air to halt allergies and other irritations and stop them from polluting the air in the future.
The main types of air purifiers are activated carbon, HEPA, UV, and ozone generators. The top air purifier is one with an activated carbon pre-filter and a HEPA filter. Having an air purifier in the property will decrease airborne mold spores and make the air as clean and breathable as possible. Air purifiers are made to run all day, so they are constantly cleaning the air. Not only do they function on very little power, but they are quite noiseless, ensuring very little disturbance while you are sleeping, working, watching television, or just chillin.
