Black Mold Removal: The Beginning of the End!

Depending on the size of a mold contaminated room; you might be able to clean up the mold yourself. There are several important steps that need to be followed; otherwise, you risk a bigger and more frustrating mold mess.

What is the source of the mold?

Knowing the source of the black mold problem is essential so it doesn’t continually grow back. Otherwise, all the work will be wasted. We performed this Cloverdale black mold removal after a washing machine flood. Needless to say, the homeowners appreciated our thorough investigation, which started with the source. Making sure the washer wouldn’t leak again was also essential.

Prevent mold spores from spreading!

This tip is all too important to skip. Mold spores can be airborne, especially once they’re dried. They will mix with dirt, dust, and oxygen. Sealing off a room from the rest of the house will prevent further contamination. If mold has dried, keeping it damp will prevent the mold from spreading. This method may seem contradictory, but water will weigh down the spores until they can be removed. Otherwise, dry spores will become airborne, which can affect your health and breathing.

Get those spores out

If you have an exhaust fan, you can use it in a window to draw out any loose mold spores. A regular fan will just blow spores all over the place, which will make your black mold removal job even worse

Every little spot

If you don’t get every little spot of mold removed, the mold may multiply and all your work will be worthless. Calling professionals, such as SERVPRO of Sonoma County NE, will take the headache out of black mold, and black mold off your mind. There is no reason why you should have to deal with a mold mess yourself. We can work with you, and potentially your insurance company, and take care of any issues.
