Restoring Your Home After Mold

Dealing With Mold In Your Home

Mold on a loaf of bread can ruin your lunch, but mold in your home can ruin your so much more. So that you can quickly and effectively address mold in your home, here is a guide to mold remediation and restoration.

  • Detection: You do not need newfangled technology to detect mold. Your best assets are your eyes and your nose. Check your home for mold regularly.
  • Evaluation: If you do find mold, collect a sample and have it tested in a lab to determine its type and the best way to get rid of it.
  • Source Determination: In order to prevent future mold growth, you need to determine—and cut off—its source of moisture. You can use plastic barriers and negative air pressure to keep the spores controlled.
  • Removal: Wet washing, HEPA vacuuming, and wire brushing can be utilized to completely remove all materials that have been infected with mold. Applying biocides to the area can also help prevent future outbreaks in your home.
