Finding mold growing in your residential or commercial property can feel scary, and handling the mold removal, mold remediation, and restoration process can be daunting. When it comes to mold damage, the problem needs to be handled quickly before it becomes a much more serious issue. Whether you find black mold, another type of mold, or you’re not sure what mold is growing in your home or office, don’t try tackling the problem yourself. Do-it-yourself (DIY) mold removal projects pose various challenges and risks to your health and your property.

Failing To Remove All The Mold

Are you sure you got all of the mold? If even a small portion of the mold in your home or office is overlooked, the mold removed may grow back, and its spores will continue to release contaminants into the air, affecting your health and your property’s integrity. In many cases, the mold you cannot see is the catalyst of the issue. Mold can fester in unseen, hard-to-reach places, such as crawlspaces, particularly for homes that have sustained water damage. To effectively remove all of the mold, you’ll need the expertise of a mold remediation company.

Misidentifying The Underlying Cause

What you believe to be the source of the mold may not be the true source. Mold issues are usually caused by moisture and a lack of proper ventilation. However, it could be caused by sewage or some other form of contaminated water. You might think the moisture in your bathroom that accumulates after a shower may be the source of the mold when, in actuality, the mold may be the result of a hidden pipe leak or the spreading of mold spores by your HVAC system. To get the job done right and effectively identify the underlying cause of mold damage, contact our professional mold remediation company today.

Causing More Extensive Issues

To fully understand the potential dangers of mold, it’s important to know how mold forms and spreads. When mold spores become airborne, such as due to improper DIY mold removal, these spores can spread to other areas of the property, resulting in more extensive property damage and a more intensive mold issue. Mold spores float in the air and can easily begin growing in new places. While attempting to clean the mold yourself, you could accidentally relocate mold into previously unaffected areas. While mold spores can trigger allergies and asthma attacks, some molds can produce life-threatening toxins.

Using The Wrong Equipment

Mold remediation, mold restoration, and mold cleanup are specialized services beyond routine cleaning. Mold remediation requires expertise and advanced testing, removal techniques, and equipment. Before our team begins the mold removal and remediation process, we put several measures into place to prevent mold spores from spreading. With the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), our specialists can avoid coming into contact with spores.

Acting Too Slowly To Combat Mold

The best way to avoid a mold issue is to ensure mold does not have a chance to form in the first place. But, when a mold problem develops, it should be professionally remediated as soon as it appears. While rushing to clean up and remove any mold growth in your property may be the quickest way to get rid of visible mold, it is hardly the most effective or efficient. Our professional mold remediation specialists follow research-based, industry-standard procedures that ensure mold removal. These processes guarantee the efficient removal of spores and the improvement of air quality following assessment, containment, removal, restoration, and filtration.
