When spring cleaning, you’re often inspecting spaces inside and outside your home that may usually go unnoticed. Unfortunately, it’s a prime time to discover mold.
What to Do If You Find Mold
The best way to minimize the effects of mold is by taking immediate action. Mold in your home can dramatically impact your property value and can be dangerous to yours and your family’s health.
What Should I Do?
- Act Quickly
When it comes to mold, it’s best to act quickly. The longer it is left to grow, the more hazardous to your health the infestation can become, along with increasing the risk and size of potential damage to your property.
- Protect Yourself
While some minor mold growth can potentially be handled yourself, it’s important to assess risks first. Always wear a mask and gloves when inspecting mold. If the growth is larger than 3X3 feet, it’s best to get help from restoration professionals.
