  • Together with your mold removal business, develop a plan to incorporate air duct cleaning into the procedure.
  • In parts of your home like the basement or attic that aren't adequately aired, have a dehumidifier running.
  • After using the shower or tub, let it air dry completely before shutting the shower curtain to prevent the growth of mildew.
  • Moldy surfaces shouldn't be painted or caulked. Moldy surfaces are more likely to peel paint when it is applied.
  • Watch your utility statement carefully and take note of any changes in your water consumption. Mold development may make hidden plumbing leaks difficult to detect for weeks or even months, which exacerbates the issue.
  • When attempting to remove mold, never combine bleach and ammonia or different home cleansers. It produces a toxic gas.
  • Mold treatment does not necessarily require mold testing, but understanding the type of mold present enables your remediation professional to select the most suitable materials.
