Do you need definitive mold remediation?

Updated: Jul 13, 2023

Mold Remediation is the process of eradicating mold within the home. It is an important aspect of having a safe environment and has become increasingly more important in selling your home. Homes in wetter areas tend to have more mold in their house. Remediation involves fixing the current mold issue and preventing more mold from growing. This is done by addressing where the moisture is coming from. After the mold is cleared, the area must be dried and dust-free.

Did you know that there are more than 1,000 species of mold in the United States? While many of these are invisible to the naked eye, they can cause serious problems for your health and your home. If you've been feeling sick for a long time without a diagnosis, you may have a problem with mold in your basement.

The bad news is that mold causes more problems than you might have thought. Here are five strange things that can happen once these nasty spores start to grow and multiply in your home within an hour.

  • Smells like humidity

  • Unrelenting allergy symptoms

  • Damage to your home

  • Air conditioning problems

  • Decline in home value

Some homeowners try to remove mold themselves and find the process extremely frustrating. Not only is it extremely tricky and time consuming, but you may not get it all out on the first try.

There are plenty of other reasons mold removal is a less-than-ideal DIY project. These are just some of the more serious concerns:

  • Special supplies and equipment are needed for proper removal.

  • Exposure during removal may cause allergy symptoms or more serious illness.

  • Cross contamination is a big possibility.

  • It's easy to accidentally spread mold to other areas of your home.

  • When it comes to mold removal, it's always best to leave the job to trained professionals.
