Mold: When To Call The Experts
Experienced homeowners know that mold comes with the territory. Often, a little elbow grease will do the trick to get rid of it, but not always. It’s important to be educated about mold to know when it’s time to ask for professional help.
Below you’ll find three mold facts to help determine when to call for professional mold remediation services.
Did you know that mold is airborne? Mold spores spread through the air - which means it can spread quickly and far.
Because mold spores are airborne, they can also cause health side effects like allergies and respiratory issues, and even skin irritation. If you’ve noticed these adverse reactions, it may be time to call in an expert.
Mold can grow in the walls of your home - especially untreated drywall that is porous. To get rid of mold in the walls, often the infected section of the wall has to be removed.
If a mold colony has grown larger than 10 sq. feet in the wall, it’s time to ask an expert for help.
All mold needs to grow is water or humidity. That makes the bathroom or even the basement the most common locations for mold. Because mold is common in these places, you may think you can handle it on your own. But if the infestation continues to reoccur, the problem might be worse than you think.
