The first duty when dealing with a flood of any type is getting rid of the water. This is a time sensitive concern that may happen naturally as water recedes and with the help of a pump. So, to prevent further damage to the property, get the water out by any means possible.
The standard of infestation can be gauged by the NFPA standards basic on the area of mold growth. Though not a perfect measure, the size of the mold contamination does provide a way to quickly assess the potential mold threat. There are Five Levels of Mold Remediation according to the NFPA.
The area of indoor air quality seems somewhat esoteric or non-descript. What is indoor air quality and why should we care? It might help to equate air to water to make sense of what else follows in this article. We know that water (H2O) is best if it is pure. It is healthier when it is pure. We can add things to water that are good, but may be enhance the health benefits ... like sugar or carbonation. And, we can make tea, coffee, and additives our bodies might like.
The most obvious area of missing information is that ozone is made in nature, and thus it should be considered as eco-friendly and very sustainable. Ozone uses NO RAW PRODUCTS to make. Ozone is enriched oxygen, so existing O2 oxygen is restructured to form O3 0zone. Because it is "unstable or reactive", the O3 will revert back to O2 in about thirty minutes or sooner.
For those fighting mold problems, you need to know some very important facts:
FIRST: What you see may only be the tip of the iceberg. If you see mold on any porous surface, you must be sure that what is behind that moldy surface is not much worse where you cannot see.
Disease prevention is not a single issue problem. It is always a crucial issue to teach children to routinely wash their hands, avoid kissing or hugging other sick children, and to cover their sneezes or coughs. Kids have no idea how germs are passed, so teach them how to stay heathy.
It is normal to think that cleaning your carpet will freshen the house or office and get rid of those stale odors. In fact, carpet cleaning is recommended and it does a good job of getting a lot of junk out of the carpet. Always start with a very good vacuuming of the carpet using a freshly emptied bag. The carpet cleaning process will then apply a minimum of water, cleaning solution, physical agitation; and then extract as much as possible so the carpet dries in short order.
So far, there is no real debate on this subject; but I must say that there is some rivalry between aqueous ozone and chlorine dioxide. Why is that? Well, they are different products, but they are still both in the same category of "Oxidizers". And, I think the very idea of oxidation is one of nature's best gifts. Fast oxidation is called fire. Very fast oxidation is called an explosion.
