Benefits of a Clean Bathroom Exhaust Fan 

The Importance of Maintaining A Clean Bathroom Exhaust Fan

Are you planning to have your home renovated? Your home should be the most comfortable and sophisticated place to live in. You don’t have to own expensive furniture or items to make it comfortable and cozy. The most important thing to consider is to make sure that no part of your house is being neglected.

What are the most common areas that many homeowners and renters tend to focus on? More often than not, we tend to focus on improving the living room, accessorizing the balcony, and maintaining the kitchen. We get so overwhelmed with shopping for items to design our house with modern, contemporary or classic style, though one important item to take note of is maintaining the bathroom, especially the bathroom exhaust fan.

Have you ever thought of having your bathroom fan cleaned before? I have never thought about this before, but I was able to discovery many of the benefits after discussing it with my house maintenance team. I didn’t use to have a regular maintenance of my house due to my hectic work schedule. I realized after some time then that I have to make some time to do the important things to maintain my home.

How to Clean a Bathroom Exhaust Fan

How to attend to exhaust fan cleaning? Just take a few minutes checking the appearance of the fan and recall when it was that you last opened it and cleaned it. If it has been months, years, or even decades ago, find a way to have it cleaned right away.

How many times have you had your exhaust fan cleaned in your bathroom? If you haven’t had one scheduled yet for some time now, let me share with you the most important benefits of the clean bathroom fan:

  • Mirrors can be cleaned right away.
  • Sinks, faucets, and tubs can be addressed with certain cleaning materials.
  • Shower area can be given utmost importance because it is a basic need for anyone giving significance to physical hygiene.

Here are some reasons why it is  very important to maintain your bathroom, including the exhaust fan.

Prevents Mold, Mildew and Other Types of Bacteria

Dirt, bacteria, mold, and mildew can easily appear in the bathroom. In the tub, sink, toilet, tiles, and shower, mold and mildew can easily spread even if we utilize the best cleaning liquid or soap. You might even notice that cleaning the bathroom takes a lot of your time and effort. And who are those who really like cleaning this part of the house? Having a clean and polished exhaust fan will help you a lot in this task.

A clean and good performing exhaust fan help prevent the mold and other types of bacteria. The air flows through it smoothly, and so the dirt and mildew or mold can’t survive. With this, cleaning the tub, sink, and tiles become shorter in time and less tedious. Who could not ever fall in love with a bathroom that is as clean as the ones in luxury hotels?

Keeps the Air Clean and Fresh

Have you been spending too much on bathroom fresheners lately? While it’s not a bad idea to diffuse pure essential oils in your home or bathroom, having a good bathroom fan will provide a resource for clean-smelling air and reduce the chance of mold and mildew growing in your bathroom. But to have that refreshing air and atmosphere, make sure to have that exhaust fan cleaned as well regularly. This helps a lot in making sure that the air inside is good for your health. This is to avoid discussions also when other members of your house prefer a different freshener scent. With a natural, clean air, all would enjoy taking showers at any time of day or night.

Prevents Serious Renovation Expenses

Save a lot of money and time through regular maintenance of your house, especially in your bathroom. Schedule an exhaust fan cleaning with a licensed and professional technician. This would only cost less compared to thousands of dollars that may pile up when this part of the house gets neglected over time.

How to hire a professional technician in your area? Referrals from friends and neighbors will be great. Get feedback from them about the technician you’re planning to get. For sure, they will provide first-hand feedback, as they have been customers before. You may also check the company that the technicians belong to. Have they been providing different types of house maintenance, renovation, and repair service for many years already? If yes, check for surveys from their website or from search engines. If there hasn’t been anything and they are licensed in your area, then it’s great to hire them.

Why hire a professional and not just get anyone from your neighbor? For one, they can identify if your ventilation fan is properly working or not. Does it circulate air properly, or you need to change it to something better? Exhaust fans also collect dust, mildew, and other bacteria. Over time, they can experience irreparable damage. While you are not ready to spend tons of money yet, spend a few for a technician. This will let you breathe in and out comfortably because of having a wise budget decision.

DIY Mold Removal vs Professional Mold Remediation

DIY vs Professional

Are you a “DIY-er” at heart? A lot of people love the thrill of taking on home projects from building their own furniture to remodeling a kitchen. DIY can be a great hobby, involve the entire family and save a lot of money. But what about when it comes to major issues like mold remediation?

Mold inside your house is a serious condition. If you’ve seen some or suspect it in your home, you may be wondering what the best method is to remove it. No matter what, mold is definitely different than your typical home maintenance project. When it comes to mold remediation in your home, should you try to DIY or should you call in the professionals?

Considerations of DIY Mold Remediation

There are a lot of varying factors when it comes to mold in the home. Whether you have a leaky faucet, a steamy shower or have just been through a flood in your home, your mold problem and solution may vary. While deciding whether or not to tackle your mold problem alone, there are several considerations to take into mind. The decision to hire out the mold remediation or do it yourself is a big one so think it through carefully.

How much mold is in your home?

How deep has the mold gone? It can be difficult to assess how much the mold has grown beyond what you can see without a proper mold inspection, especially if it is hidden deep into walls or cracks and crevices. Surface mold is much easier to deal with and contain. There are many sprays and soaps that are made to kill and remove mold. Many home owners may even be proficient enough to replace drywall and insulation on their own. The real problem arises when the mold has gone airborne or has gotten into several structural elements of the home. And sometimes it can be difficult to know how far the mold has travelled.

What caused the mold?

It is greatly beneficial to determine the source of the moisture that caused the mold when determining whether or not you should perform your own mold remediation. Obviously, the source of moisture must be remedied as well as the mold. Knowing the source of moisture may also help you determine how much mold is present, especially if you know how long the moisture has been an issue. For example, you may know that your roof started leaking from a small hole a month ago which may help you determine how much mold is present and how deep it has grown. Again, the problem arises when there are unknowns. Even if you find the source of the moisture, can you be certain on the length of time exposed and how deep the moisture has travelled? If you are uncertain, it is best to call in the pros.

Do you have access to the knowledge and equipment you will need for mold remediation?

Do you know the proper procedures to effectively remove mold? The methods and practices may vary depending on what type of mold you have, what areas of the home are affected and how long the mold has been present. Special equipment (such as fumigation systems) may also be required depending on the situation at hand. You will need proper safety equipment to keep the mold from entering your mouth, nose and eyes as well as protecting your skin from contact. You can purchase some of this equipment or you may choose to hire a professional who already owns all of the equipment necessary. Many of the mold remediation pros use a negative air machine as well as other equipment to keep your family safe during mold remediation. They also will have the means to test the mold prior to removal and after removal to ensure all spores are gone. If you don’t have all of the necessary equipment or are not willing to rent it, you may want to call in a mold remediation specialist.

Benefits of Professional Mold Remediation

Many people try to remove and clean mold on their own. Often it may appear to be a small problem that can easily be dealt with. But there is often more than meets the eye. If you can see mold on your walls, there is a good chance there is more growing behind the walls. And what about under your furniture or inside your air ducts? Mold spores can be so tiny that they are difficult to see with just eyes and impossible to know how many are present on your own.

When you choose to hire a certified, professional mold remediation company, you can rest assured that the job will be done thoroughly and completely. They will send experts to your home that will be able to assess the extent of the damage and inform you of the required remediation and repairs. They will also be able to ensure that the mold doesn’t return after remediation is performed.

It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to something serious such as mold. Mold can cause detrimental health issues to yourself and your family and end up costing a lot more in the long run than the cost of hiring a professional.

Do You Need Mold Remediation for your Home?

When mold is present in your home, it can be a major problem and should be dealt with properly. While it is sometimes possible to do some mold remediation on your own, often it is a good idea to call in the professionals to perform a thorough inspection and inform you of all of your options prior to making your decision. You will need to know how much mold is your home, the source of the moisture and the proper equipment and procedures for mold remediation. Mold inside your home is a serious condition and should be dealt with properly and immediately. Make sure you know all of the facts when you make your decision whether DIY mold remediation is a project you have the knowledge and capability to undertake safely.

Mold Sickness: Will Activated Charcoal Help?

History of Activated Charcoal

The earliest known use for activated charcoal was recorded in 3750 B.C. It was during this period of earth’s history that Egyptian and Sumerian metallurgy was revolutionizing the metal works industry with the introduction of bronze—an alloy of tin, zinc, and copper dependent upon carbon, or activated charcoal, for the purpose of atomic oxygen-reduction and elemental extraction.

In that same period, known as the Bronze Age, Egyptians discovered another use for charcoal—as a preservative. When scorched-black wood was used for construction along the Nile river, it was later revealed that the wood did not rot, despite the high moisture content in the surrounding soil. Mold had already established itself among Mesopotamian civilizations as quite the formidable foe. The only course of action of that time was to burn any material affected by mold—including entire homes. Thus, it was quite profitable to the Egyptians to discover an anti-microbial method by which they could protect their residential and watercraft building materials.

Because of its source-diversity (meaning: it can be produced from a great variety of raw, carbonaceous materials, such as bituminous and sub-bituminous coal, lignite coal, bamboo, coconut husks, and wood—among other cellulosic materials), multiple uses for activated charcoal were discovered over time by even the most primitive of civilizations. For millennia, it was used as a water filtration method, a blood purifier, an emergency toxin removal, and a cure for the common hangover. By the twentieth century, it was engineered into powder form and commercialized for the purpose of decolorizing sugar and improving the taste and odor of city and well water. During the first World War, the efficacy of military gas masks was contingent upon activated carbon granules for protective air purification.

Today, the various uses and benefits of activated charcoal have far surpassed the imaginations of the Bronze Age woodworker. Currently, this special carbon is employed in a wide range of applications, such as a teeth whitener, an anti-aging ingredient, an aid against bloating, gas, and even high cholesterol, and a potent ministration in the treatment of mold sickness.

How Activated Charcoal Works

The “activation” of the charcoal involves a treatment of oxygen, which causes tiny holes all throughout the carbon. These highly-porous features result in a significantly large surface area of 300–2,000 m2/g, which makes the now-activated charcoal more permeable to chemicals and organic particles in either liquid or gas form. The exposed carbon interacts with these particulars and binds to them, thus reducing or obliterating completely, the risk of toxic absorption into the body.

Activated Charcoal vs. Mold

There are many who have claimed activated charcoal aids or cures fungal overgrowth in the body. This is only partially true. What is often misunderstood is that, when it comes to mold or yeast, this charred carbon is best suited only for the absorption of fungi’s secondary metabolites. What this means is that activated charcoal will not remove or kill the mold. This extraordinarily absorbent property does, however, bind itself to mold’s mycotoxins—the very cause of symptomatic discomforts throughout the body.

If the debilitating symptoms can be controlled or hindered, then the body’s natural inflammatory response will work more efficiently and any other supplementary or dietary aid, such as Mycozil or a candida cleanse, will be more effective and possibly have quicker results.

Usage Suggestions

If you decide to begin a regimen of activated charcoal use, please be mindful that activated charcoal has the potential to bind itself to some nutrients and minerals in the food you eat, as well as to any medication or supplement. The best solution is to take activated charcoal—

—Just before sleep; 1 hour or more after the last meal or intake of medicine/supplements
—Upon waking; 1 hour or more before the first meal or intake of medicine/supplements
—Any time during the day; Allowing enough time between the intake of food/medicine/supplements

For first-time exposure or daily work-environment exposure to mold or yeast, consider taking activated charcoal before symptoms arise or on a regular basis—before, during, and after possible exposure times—if daily work-related exposure is imminent. This is especially important for farmers.

Drink plenty of water throughout each day and be patient for results. Remember, this is not to remove or kill mold, but to hinder the painful and devastating effects of mold’s mycotoxins on the body.

Please seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a mold-related condition.
