If You See Mold In Your Home
If you see or smell mold in home, the most important step is to locate the source of moisture and make repairs to stop them. Cleaning only the mold without fixing the problem, the mold will recur and may not be as easy to find (it is a living breathing organism).
Places to inspect for moisture if mold is present in home:
- Leaking roof
IF you do not see mold but only smell it, it may be growing behind previously water damaged walls carpet or wallpaper. Resulting in more extensive mold damage. Once the moisture source has been fixed, you need to decide if removing the mold requires a professional.
If the mold is from a sewage back up, other contaminated water such as a water damage left for an unknown amount of time –it is best if you contact a professional.
IF you see mold in more than one area in one room, or on walls, carpet or ceiling it is best to call a professional, check out our mold gallery photos and before and after pictures to get an idea of what professionals are called in to clean up. You’ll see some examples where the mold isn’t visible and others where it is very VERY visible.
