Mold Restoration – What to Do
- Call RestorationMaster immediately upon noticing the mold to prevent it from spreading further.
- Close all windows and doors if conditions are moist or humid outside.
- Increase the air ventilation throughout the home by turning on the dehumidifier or HVAC system.
- Dry off any unaffected walls if they contain condensation or are damp to prevent mold growth.
- Inspect additional areas for mold growth: crawlspaces, the attic, basement, bathroom, tight corners, and any other damp, dark areas where it may thrive. Be careful not to touch any visible mold.
- Always wear protective equipment, such as a mask, glasses, and gloves when present around the mold.
Mold Damage Repair – What to Do
- Never try to remove the mold yourself. It has been proven that household cleaning products show little to no effect to removing all of the mold. In turn, it can even spread further by dispersing its spores as a defense mechanism.
- Avoid any direct contact with the mold as the spores can cause severe illnesses if they are inhaled.
- Do not try to paint or caulk over visible mold.
- Do not place a fan to blow directly on visible mold as it will also release its spores as a response to the disturbance.
