When you have a mold infestation removing it can be a hassle. That’s why we’ve created a tip sheet just for you. By following these simple tips for mold removal, you’ll know what to do to get things back to normal.
Tip 1. Identify the Location: If you think you have a mold problem, your first step is to identify the location in the building where mold is evident. If the problem is visible, eliminate the source. You may have to discard and replace porous materials, such as carpet. Mold can also grow behind wallpaper, under ceiling tiles and carpets or inside ventilation. Sometimes it also grows where it can’t be seen, like behind walls.
Tip 2. Cleaning Mold: Small mold problems can generally be handled by a homeowner or building maintenance personnel. Larger areas may require a contractor. Respirators and protective clothing are required to protect the person removing the mold.
Tip 3. Knowing if You Need Professional Help: For mold problems more than 10 square feet you should consider hiring an experienced mold remediation contractor. A company that specializes in water damage restoration can best advise you how to repair the damage.
