You Found Mold, Now What?
With plenty of tasks demanding your attention, discovering mold in your home or business can feel like the last straw. It seems like yet another major problem to deal with. If you don’t have a background in mold remediation you may not even know where to start.
Mold is not something you want to trifle with. If you try to clean it up on your own, you could be in for a larger mess. Disturbing the mold spores without proper precaution can sending them flying through the air which could lead to health problems for people inside your home or building. Another problem with DIY mold cleanup is being sure you have gotten all of it. According to mold remediation expert Michael Pinto, when mold is visible on a wall there is oftentimes five to ten times more mold behind the wall.
