Any mold professional should be able to explain your mold removal project in plain English. If a contractor is unable to explain the basic processes and steps of mold remediation and mold removal in layman’s terms, be very wary.
Once in the home, here’s what to expect from a professional:
How Do You Prepare for Mold Remediation in Your Home?
1. Isolate the Area
If you notice mold in your home, try to identify the source of moisture coming in your home and block off that area as well as you can to prevent spores from spreading any further. This can be done by covering air vents and doorways leading to the infested area with large plastic sheets. This will prevent the mold from having extra room to grow until the professionals can get the job finished.
2. Avoid Extra Ventilation
Mold requires moisture and airflow to grow. Fight your urges to try and dry out a moldy area by opening the windows or using fans. Flowing air will allow the mold spores to spread, giving them the potential to invade more areas of your home.
3. Leave It Alone
You may be tempted to get out the bleach and cleaning materials when you notice a patch of mold, but it is best left alone. Cleaning can cause more mold particles to become airborne and may even thrive from left-behind moisture. Some may think that removing the wall will fix the problem, but, since mold moves through the air, this can move it further into your home. Trust the mold remediation.
