The health effects associated with exposure to mold, pollen, smoke particulate and combustion emission matter can vary greatly in individuals with allergies and those who may be immuno-compromised like the elderly, infants, and people with pre-existing medical conditions, all of whom are at a much greater risk of adverse health effects.
Exposure may occur via ingestion, inhalation or via skin contact and can result in allergic reactions, infections, and toxic poisoning. Associated symptoms can vary greatly and range from a skin rash, wheezing, runny eyes, as well as cold and flu like symptoms. However, in other far more serious cases where there is prolonged exposure it has led to neurological damage and even death.
Both pollen and mold are the leading cause of serious illness for people with asthma and lung conditions. Mold and mildew are found almost everywhere and can flourish on almost any surface where moisture and oxygen are present.
Pressure washing, high pressure cleaning or soft washing is the safest and most effective method of removing particulate matter, pollen, mold, and mildew.
A clean and well-maintained property is not only an appealing sight, it’s safer to live and work in. All building exterior surfaces are degraded by both natural elements and pollutants over time. Contaminants include windblown dust and dirt, pollen and airborne spores, saline salts, mold, algae, combustion emission matter from vehicles and industry, smoke particulate from bushfires, and various other organic matter.
The process of pressure washing, high pressure cleaning or soft washing can easily remove natural and man-made contaminants which normal cleaning techniques cannot.
Routinely pressure washing, high pressure cleaning or soft washing your property will remove the contaminates that greatly accelerate building materials deterioration. The deterioration if left unchecked will result in leaks and rotting. Owners instead of undertaking minor repairs and touch-ups will need to replace costly building materials, often these repairs will cost several thousands of dollars.
Pressure washing, high pressure cleaning and soft washing will reduce the cost of building maintenance greatly giving you peace of mind.
