Removing Mold From Your Home The Right Way

Discovering mold of any kind in your home can be frustrating. A lot of different things can cause mold to grow in your home, but getting it out after you find it often means hiring a mold removal service to deal with the mold.

Common Places to Find Mold

Mold can grow in any part of your home, but in most cases, cool, dark places with high moisture levels are the most common places to find mold. Areas where drains come out of the tub, sink, or shower can be prone to mold growth because small leaks can easily go undetected there, so the wood stays damp. The mold can grow there and spread to other areas quickly, and depending on the type of mold, the health of your family is at risk, no matter where the mold is at. 

Mold Inspection

If you think you have a mold problem, you can hire a mold removal service to come and look over your home. The inspection will mean checking all the places that mold could grow in and around the home. If the inspector finds any mold, they will let you know what they found, where they found it, and how they will remove the mold for you. 

The inspector will give you a quote for removal and can book a time to come back with a crew to remove the mold from the home. Because removing the mold can stir up mold spores in the air, it is a good idea to vacate the home while the removal process is underway. If the process takes a couple of days, living and sleeping in the home with potential mold particles in the air is very unhealthy. 

Mold Disposal

The mold that is being removed from the home needs to be disposed of properly. In most cases, the contractor or removal service has a plan for the mold long before the job starts in your home. There are rules that the company must follow when they take the mold out of a house, but they will arrange everything, so you do not have to worry about any of that part of the job.

Once the mold is removed, you can have an air quality test inside the home to make sure there is no mold in the air. The removal service may even do that for you just to be sure the home is ready for you to move back into. Ask the removal service about an air quality test when they give you the details about the job and the cost of it.
