What Is Surface Contamination
How Do We Treat It?

A microbe is a small organism that can cause disease or illness when a person comes in contact with it. There are many types of microbes, including bacteria, yeast, fungi, and mold. They usually begin growing to dangerous levels due to moisture around the home. In a normal home, these microbes exist in small quantities and aren’t harmful to your health. However, they become extremely harmful to your health when they aren’t contained. Unsafe levels of microbes in your home can have many detrimental health effects and could even cause your home to need serious repair. To make sure you and your family are safe, it’s important to get your home inspected and sign up for our Surface Defense program.

Why Use Surface Defense for Decontamination?

Though most microbial contamination is invisible to the eye, it can have serious health consequences. Many microbes have the potential to cause respiratory problems. However, it may be hard to tell whether you’re experiencing respiratory issues if you have been living with microbial contamination for a while. Some signs of microbial contamination in your home to look out for include an ongoing cough, trouble breathing, and the development of asthma. In some cases, microbial contamination can also cause pets to become ill with respiratory infections. Microbial contamination is particularly harmful to small children and the elderly. This is because small children and the elderly often times lack a strong immune system to fight off these microbes. A weakened immune system allows for easier infections as well as a higher chance of hospitalization.
Besides ongoing respiratory issues for you and your family, microbial contamination has been linked to serious long-term health risks. Some of these health risks include heart disease and cancer. It’s important to deal with microbial contamination as soon as possible to avoid these diseases and illnesses.

Where is Surface Contamination Most Often Located?

Though some contaminations are invisible, there are some precautions you can take to see if your home is contaminated. For mold and fungi contamination, look around your home for spots that are wet. If these spots stay wet for long periods of time or never completely dry out, it’s possible that your home is contaminated. Even if you see a wet spot in your home that looks clean, it could be possible that the microbes have previously formed at that spot and spread throughout your home on air currents. Even if you don’t see physical signs of microbial contamination, it doesn’t mean your home is safe. Most of the time contamination isn’t just localized to one spot in your home. Central heating and air systems can spread contamination as they distribute air throughout your home. When microbes have contaminated your air ducts, it’s possible to notice a smell coming out of the vents in your home.

Common places we see contamination around the home include the basement, utility closets, near the water heater, and garages. These are good places to start looking for surface microbial contamination, but it’s possible it exists elsewhere in your home.

Microbial contamination is tricky to deal with — not to mention dangerous. Many over-the-counter solutions to microbial contamination either don’t work or can be harmful to your health. Many of these products claim to solve your contamination problems, and they might for a while. But given enough time, contamination will happen again and again. Surface contamination can be a very complex problem. Choosing the right way to solve this problem is key to providing a safe home for your family. Because there are so many solutions, it’s important to get it right the first time, so the problem doesn’t recur. We often see people take matters into their own hands and clean up contamination themselves only for their home to become contaminated again after only a couple months.
Besides being able to safely remove microbial contamination from your home, we can guarantee there won’t be recurring contamination from the same source. When we decontaminate, we make sure to cover all our bases. Our service isn’t just about cleaning up and leaving. We make sure you’re safe from recurring contamination so that you can live in your home with peace of mind. The issue coming back is not only dangerous to you and your family’s health, but also your home’s health as well. Homes that are not decontaminated face problems with rotting wood and damaged drywall.
