How To Handle Your Home Mold Removal

Mold is one of the most common forms of environmental cleanup, and it's an issue that everyone with a home will likely need to address some time or another. Working with a mold removal specialist requires you to understand more about this fungus, how it breeds, and why it's potentially harmful. Once this is established, you'll have everything you need to find a pro and move forward with mold testing and remediation. 

Why should you be so careful about the way you handle your mold issues?

Mold is a problem that can spread quickly in your household. Since it festers in areas that are damp and warm, you might find that your basement, bathroom, laundry room, and crawl spaces are areas that are particularly affected. Mold causes property damage and also can irritate your lungs and throat. There are some types of green and black mold that are particularly potent and can cause health problems. Check out some photos from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to get an idea of the kind of mold you're dealing with. From here, you should take photos and video of the mold and then reach out to a professional that can inspect your mold and apply remediation. 

Have you gotten the mold inspected?

Call up a mold removal specialist that can come to your home and provide an inspection. They'll give you an idea about the mold that you're dealing with when you send them the photos and video that you took, and then they will come to your property for a visual inspection. These professionals will take surface and air samples so that they can find mold that is beneath walls and floorboards, and assess the exact strain of mold that you're contending with. After this inspection, the mold removal specialist will provide a game plan for removing the mold, along with a timetable and price estimates for getting it done. 

What should you know about working with a mold removal specialist?

Any mold removal specialist that you hire should have impeccable ratings and reviews, a strong and verifiable Better Business Bureau (BBB) track record, and should have certifications like Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC). Check around for a couple of different price quotes so that you have an idea about the price range that you'll pay.
