Ugh. Occasionally I search for any lurking nonsense on the internet about mold which is being used to misinform consumers. It’s a sick hobby as it always leaves me annoyed.
Mold on Vinyl Siding - By: Bradley Skierkowski
This article is designed to help educate the reader on identifying **mold and mildew on vinyl siding and to address the hazards of allowing mold and mildew to go untreated. **
Vinyl siding was a great hassle free invention created for the exterior of homes and buildings alike. Vinyl siding has very few draw backs. The product has a long life span, is very durable and easy to install. Unfortunately, even with a UV sun protestant added to the manufacturing process, over time vinyl siding will usually become dingy looking and dirty. Especially in southern states where the humidity is seasonally high mold and mildew will set in growing on the exterior of the vinyl siding eventually leading to green fungus, black fungus and even black mold. **If not treated and removed promptly, the seemingly harmless black mold and mildew can spread to various parts of the interior of the structure causing expensive costly repairs not to mention a potentially dangerous hazard to you family and pets. **
There is a solution, mold and mildew can be easily removed from vinyl siding with little effort. There are many products on the market that will claim to be the strongest or the best. Ensure that you are buying from a company that will stand behind their product with a money back guarantee.
Ensure that you are purchasing a product that will effectively kill black mold and mildew on contact. This will ensure that the mold and mildew will most likely not spread to other parts of the structure infesting you home.
I hope this has educated all my fellow inspectors about the hazards of mold on the
exterior of the houses you inspect. :roll:
Well, at least this time I got a good laugh.
I may have to look into this man’s claims a bit further… :mrgreen:
Since it is on the internet it must be true.
He forgot to mention it should be tested first by a square one home inspector to ensure it’s actually mold.
Pleasure washer? That’s what I call a bidet.
None of the restoration industry standards highlight " “killing mold” as part of the remediation process. They do highlight removal of mold. Mold and microbial activity make up 25 percent of the planet surface. How much killing and removal would have to take place to solve that issue. Put down your Internet articles and step away from the computer.
I’m doing my part. I hunt mushrooms every spring and use blue cheese dressing on hot wings.
he sounds like an expert. He may be related or work with Kevin.
lol!! Careful, Juan. I got a nasty personal message a while back for making the same reference!
I’m not scared
You should be. There could be killer toxic black dirt on your veranda this very minute.
veranda…it’s “Yankee” code for covered porch.
I wonder if the wife will think I flipped if I told her to bring me a cold one out on the veranda.
She’d say that ain’t here sister’s name!! :|.)
Reminds me of an old joke about kids knowing too much. Two five-year-olds overheard talking to each other:
Did you hear that Charlie Smith’s mom found a condom on the veranda?
** What’s a veranda?
