Today is Linda’s day off and she’s excited its finally November. It’s her favorite time of the month because she hosts a big Thanksgiving dinner every year and gets to have her kids’ home from college for an entire week.
Since it’s Linda’s day off, she decides to switch out her decorations from Halloween to Thanksgiving. She starts by packing all her yard ghosts, pumpkins and yard signs by putting it all back into the storage bins. Once it’s all packed up, Linda carries her extremely heavy bin to the storage closet by her washer and dryer.
Signs of Mold: Mold Growth
Once she opens the storage closet door to place back her Halloween decoration bin, she’s instantly terrified! Mold has been forming all over her walls and ceiling. She immediately takes everything out of her storage closet and begins spraying it down with bleach.
Although she was planning on decorating for Thanksgiving, Linda decides to finally call it a day. After all, she spent half of her day cleaning off mold.
A week goes by, and it’s the weekend. Linda’s kids will be home from college soon and she needs to start decorating the house for her Thanksgiving dinner. So, she goes back to her storage closet and just can’t believe what she sees! Mold is back.
Linda is now stressed, worrying about how this could potentially affect her family being over for the Thanksgiving holiday. After searching the web for ways to eliminate mold, she learns that:
- Bleach Doesn’t Kill Mold
- Bleach Can Contribute to Mold Growth
There’s no more time to waste, and Linda is aware of the potential health risks of mold. Linda decides to call her friend to ask if she knew anyone in the industry that she could trust to remove mold within a couple of weeks from her Thanksgiving dinner.
