If you’re suspecting your house has a mold infestation, be sure to call an industrial hygienist to conduct mold test. A qualified hygienist can determine the present mold condition of your property and the affected areas as well as the level of toxicity of mold.
Once you received confirmation that your house is infested with mold, call a professional mold removal company right away. Attempting to do the mold remediation on your own using DIY techniques is not recommended since you may aggravate the current situation as mold spores can spread to other parts of the house.
Where to Look for Molds
Mold can grow almost anywhere in your home if the right conditions are met. The kitchen is the most common area where mold can grow.
Check under the sink. Small pipe leaks are unnoticeable, so water damage and moisture can be left untreated. The combination of leaks and dark spaces is a perfect environment for mold to grow and thrive.
The area where you do the laundry can be a perfect place for mold to grow including the washing machine. Check the doors and the gasket for possible mold growth. Warm and dark areas are ideal for mold to grow. To avoid mold to build in your washing machine, make sure to clean it after use. Wipe the door and the gasket. To prevent moisture, leave the door open to allow air to get out.
Mold can grow if there is moisture. It can cause health risks with long-term exposure, so you would want to get rid of it as soon as you can. If you suspect that your house has a mold infestation, call a mold removal company to eliminate mold and keep your home a safe living environment for you and your family.
