The Problem With Mold
Before you start removing mold, understand that there is no way to remove 100% of it from a house. Mold exists in every home, and almost any test will have positive results due to small amounts of it floating in the home's air.
There is no standard of measurement for "too much" mold in a house, either. Instead, remediation professionals base their assessments on comparing the mold levels in a home against those outside the home.
But how do you go about removing mold when there is too much in the house? And how do you keep it from coming back?
Step 1 – Break the Cycle
For mold to grow in a home, it requires three things: heat, moisture, and organic matter. Homes with humidity higher than 60% are guaranteed to support spore growth because every house has organic matter (dust, dirt, etc.) and some form of heating.
Step 2 – Clean and Remediate Properly
Professional remediation companies get called a lot to take care of incorrectly removed mold that has grown back into a bigger problem. To properly remove mold, you need to have the proper tools and equipment to do it. Remember, any areas with more than 10 square feet of mold damage need remediation conducted by a specialist.
