8/8/2022 (Permalink)

You spot mold in your home after a recent storm or water leak: now what? Nobody wants to deal with mold problems, but once you see mold in your house, you need to take care of it, immediately. Keep in mind, before you can do anything yourself, you should inspect the mold. Mold damage in older Phoenix homes can be especially tricky! Here are a few tips to counter mold damages and are some tips before a mold remediation team gets on site!

Should you handle mold growth yourself?

There are various kinds of molds, from white mold to black mold, they can bring any kind of bacteria into your house, which is why you need to get it inspected and see what you’re dealing with. If the mold is minor, you may be tempted to clean it up yourself. However, this is a lengthy process that requires sealing up the whole area of your home, special gear, and deep cleaning. As a result, you should consider contacting a professional mold remediation team, like SERVPRO to handle your mold remediation needs!

After cleanup, there’s more work to do

Once all the cleaning is done, look for the original cause of the mold and repair it. Remember, most molds grow in humid, moist places, so keep an eye for any water leaks, broken pipes, or places with unwanted condensation. Mold damage is not uncommon in even the most well-kept home. Mold damage in homes can be most seen in places with elevated levels of condensation, like the bathroom and kitchen. Keep in mind that mold spores are everywhere; you can never completely get rid of mold spores in your home. You can, however, make sure you’ve addressed the cause of mold growth and had any mold professionally remediated to ensure the mold growth is gone, including residual odors.
