How to Get Rid of Mold

How to Get Rid of Mold

Mold isn’t just unsightly in your home or business; it can be dangerous for both you and the property. How so? Mold can cause a variety of different health problems and it can compromise the structural integrity of your home. 

If you spot mold in your home, don’t panic. Mold can be removed! Most people find mold in their home or property at some point due to a buildup of moisture. Once you find mold, don’t ignore it as it can grow and spread throughout rooms, causing more health complications and property damage. 

At Daleen Restoration Services, we specialize in mold remediation. Our professional team can stop mold from spreading further, remove the current mold, and restore the areas affected by the mold so it will not occur again. For this blog article, we share how it is possible to remove mold from your home or property:

  1. Wear old clothes that can be washed/thrown away after removing the mold. 
  2. Wear an N-95 mask or P-100 respirator, goggles, long sleeves, pants, and gloves. 
  3. Put a box fan in the window to ventilate the room while working and throw it away when you’re done because the mold spores on the fan are difficult to clean off. 
  4. Remove the source of any moisture from the moldy area (leaks, etc.) 
  5. Double bag and wrap anything containing mold, like carpet. 
  6. Moisten moldy areas with water to control airborne spores. 
  7. Contain spores by turning off the furnace, AC, and closing ducts and doors. 
  8. Use commercial black mold removal products to disinfect the moldy areas. 
  9. Toss any sponges and other materials used to clean the mold in a garbage bag and throw away outside of the property. 

You should only consider removing mold on your own if it covers an area smaller than 10 square feet. However, if you spot black mold in your home, avoiding removing it by yourself and contact a professional. Black mold is more aggressive and dangerous than other types of mold. If you try to remove black mold by yourself (without proper knowledge and experience) you can put yourself and others at risk for serious health issues. Please note, DIY mold removal is not nearly as effective as professional mold remediation services. 

Mold remediation professionals, like our team at Daleen Restoration & Remediation, can handle large mold infestations, mold from flooding, mold in the HVAC system, mold growth on wood, and more. We have the expertise, skills, and experience to safely and properly remove the mold from your home or property.
