Mold is a little four-letter word that no homeowner ever wants to hear. Unfortunately, most homes do have mold, but not all homes have bad mold. If you suspect that you have a mold problem, here is what you need to do.
- Hire a Mold Specialist – You will want to do your work in hiring a reputable and honest mold removal company. Get at least two bids to ensure that they both agree on what kind of mold you have and the extent of the problem. Multiple bids will also allow you to know if you are being overcharged. Lastly, look for online reviews and make sure that they are licensed and insured.
- Mold Removal – We highly recommend hiring a professional mold removal company. You can try to remove the mold yourself, but you run the risk of causing further damage, endangering your health, and having the mold come back because you were unsuccessful in getting it all removed. You will save yourself a lot of time, stress, and work by calling in the professionals.
- Mold Testing – If you have a mold issue, especially if it’s causing health problems to you or your family, you may want to have the mold tested. Testing the mold will tell you a lot about what you need to do to protect your health and your home in the future.
