About the Mold Remediators that Spray but not Clean

Imagine that you want to clean up your kitchen. You see the food particles, grease and other remnants of meal preparation and know there are germs on the surfaces. Instead of first wiping up the food, you take out a can of Lysol Spray. The can label says, “Lysol Spray Cleans 99.9% of Viruses and Bacteria.”  You spray all the surfaces and decide you now have a clean kitchen, despite the yucky stuff on your table and counter. That is a disgusting thought and ignores the fact that germs live inside of that biological soup you did not clean up. That is precisely what happens when you have a mold treatment that is a come and spray you home without first cleaning the surfaces by wiping surfaces, replacing damaged materials or HEPA vacuuming contaminated surfaces. There are MANY mold remediators that take such an approach.

Here it is.......if you spray but do not clean first the mold is more likely to come back. The other important factor is changing the mold conducive moisture conditions or the mold will grow again. 
Do not fall for the quick spray job .....................It may be less expensive in the short run, but returning mold can damage your health and your home....and cost you having the job done again....at MUCH MORE COST
