It can be tough to tell if you have mold in your home – but if you do, you need to take immediate action or the problem will become worse.
What Should You Do if There’s Mold in Your Home?
If you suspect there’s mold in your home, you can call a mold remediation expert out to check. Hopefully, he won’t find anything – but if he does, here’s what you need to know.
The first thing you need to do is identify the location of the mold, if you can. Sometimes it’s in carpets, which is tough to see, or it’s hidden below flooring, behind kitchen and bathroom cabinets, or inside the walls. It can even be inside your ceiling or growing in your home’s air ducts. In cases like these, it’s best to identify the area in which you think you smell mold and let your mold remediation professional know that you’re suspicious.
If you see mold, call an expert in to help. There are certain chemicals and treatments experts can use to help get rid of the mold, and it can be dangerous to your health to try to remove it yourself.
How to Prevent Mold From Growing
One of the best ways to prevent mold from growing is to keep everything in your home as dry as possible. You may need to invest in a dehumidifier (or two) for your basement or other rooms in your home.
