What To Do If You Have Mold In Your Home
1.Have your home tested by a licensed mold testing company. People often make the mistake of cleaning up the mold without testing it first. It is imperative that you know the type of mold your dealing with, and how bad the problem really is. Most mold testers are engineers so they can give your home a thorough inspection to find all of the mold. If it’s a small problem they may recommend cleaning it up yourself, and will help by giving you advice on removing it. If it’s big job and a removal service needs to be hired, they will oversee the cleanup and handle the removal process. When the cleanup is done, they will come back and test again to make sure the removal was completely done.
2. Identify the issue that is causing the mold. Make sure during the cleanup that the issue is fixed so that the mold does not come back. If there was a leak in your roof, make sure the leak repaired. If a broken pipe caused a water leak, make sure the pipe fixed. If the humidity level in your home is too high, make sure your air conditioner is set to prevent this from happening in the future. You don’t want the mold to come back.
3. Contact your insurance company and find out if mold removal is covered in your homeowners policy. In many cases it is, depending on what caused the mold.
