So, you’ve scheduled an appointment for mold removal and prepped your home, but you may still be wondering, “can I stay home during mold removal?” Our experts at MoldGone in Maricopa County, Arizona recommend that you leave your home during the process of mold removal. This is to protect you from any further exposure to mold while our team remediates your home. Continue reading for our tips on how to stay safe during mold removal.

How to Stay Safe During Mold Removal

Adhere to MoldGone Safety 

While we remediate your home, we want to make sure you are safe and can return to your home as soon as possible. To do so, we ask that you adhere to our policy and leave while we remediate your home to avoid exposure to mold and contact with the fog. When the job is done, our team will notify you and you can return to your home after an hour.

Be Aware of Potential Allergens

It’s also best that you and your family leave your home during the mold removal process to prevent any allergic reactions. Our products, instaPURE and everPURE, are accepted by the EPA and FDA for use in homes around pets and food, but they contain ingredients that may be potential allergens. For instance, our instaPURE solution contains acetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and peracetic acid.

Some signs of allergic reactions may include: 

  • Dizziness 
  • Sneezing
  • Rashes
  • Swelling

Keep in mind that allergic reactions are rare among our customers, but we care that you are informed about potential allergens. Our patent-protected process is popular among patients of holistic and supplemental physicians due to our use of natural ingredients. In addition, the chemicals in our products when mixed into our instaPURE and everPURE solutions are diluted so the chances of allergic reactions are significantly lower.

There will be a faint smell of vinegar when you return to your home, but this will fade in a short time. If you’d like to minimize the chances of an allergic reaction, you can wear a mask when you return to your home until the chemicals fully dissipate. As for pets, you can temporarily keep them in the backyard if you are worried about them having any reactions. But, allergic reactions occurring after our minimal demolition mold removal are very rare.
