What To Do If You See Mold In Your Home Or Business
Mold is that dreaded organism that no one wants to find lurking in their home or place of business. But if you suspect you may have a mold problem, then you need to take care of it as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to your property and adverse effects on your health. Midwest Remediation has over 30 years of experience in the industry and can provide the prompt service that mold requires. Read on to learn what you should do if you find mold.
What Causes Mold in the First Place
Mold and mildew thrive in a damp, humid environment and are often the result of slow leaks. Mold can start to appear within 24-48 hours after a small, enclosed area becomes wet, and may become a problem within a week. It is often found on bathroom walls and on the trim around windows, but check for leaks from the roof and moisture in your basement as well.
What to Do If You See or Smell Mold
You don’t always see mold that is present, but instead, there may be a musty smell as your first clue of a mold problem. When you see or smell mold then reach out to the mold remediation experts at Midwest Remediation to start the process of eliminating it. Besides causing ongoing damage to your home, mold can worsen allergies and respiratory issues. So don’t delay initiating the process to remove it.
Our Mold Removal Process
During our inspection of your home or business, we will investigate the cause of the moisture causing the mold, and develop a plan to prevent further water damage by correcting it. We then use third-party mold testing to conduct air and/or surface sampling to determine mold type, levels, and treatment. Next, we will carefully secure the affected area to prevent mold contamination to non-affected areas while we work. We follow protocols to return mold-contaminated properties to a healthy state and then have the third-party experts retest the mold to verify treatment was successful.
