Mold can grow anywhere in a home that is providing the right type of environment. It is common to find mold on bathroom walls, ceilings, windowsills or around any leaky plumbing underneath the bathroom sinks or toilet. Though bathrooms are typically the part of a property to experience moist humidity, this environment can be created by water leaks in walls, flooring, and even the roofing. Attic’s tend to pull in moisture and heat and is a common place for mold to grow. Crawlspaces and basements are major mold growth areas. Mold can spread quickly so it is imperative that the original source of the mold problem be found and restored.
Do Not Attempt To Remove The Mold Yourself!
Trying to remove mold on walls, ceilings, or flooring is a challenging task and only resolves a very small portion of the problem. When mold starts showing on the walls or other part of your property structure, you can guarantee that there is an underlying mold problem beneath the surface. Do-it-yourself remedies will not get rid of the source of the mold and the mold problem will continue to return. There is no safe way to completely remove the mold on the walls of your home or business without the help of a licensed professional that has the skills and tools necessary to do the job right!
A successful removal plan involves more than just the removal of mold. To prevent future contamination, it is essential to first correct the underlying moisture problem. Look for signs of water damage resulting from plumbing leaks, condensation, moisture-generating appliances and cracks of moisture intrusion.
Once the source of moisture has been permanently removed, assess the extent of contamination to determine how best to proceed with the removal. Commission a Certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) to get a professional assessment of possible contamination. How long has the problem moisture been present? What materials and systems may be contaminated? Because indoor mold growth may not be obvious, it important to thoroughly assess the entire area for hidden mold.
The process of mold removal may depend upon the size of the affected area and the level of contamination. Available methods include:
Any remediation process should include careful containment of mold-contaminated materials. This will help prevent further contamination, as mold spores may become airborne during cleanup.
Once mold remediation is complete, adopt preventative strategies and act promptly at the first signs of moisture infiltration or water damage.
Remember, unchecked mold growth can be costly to your health and property. If you have any doubts before beginning a remediation project, it may be best to seek professional services rather than to do it alone.
