How can I treat the mold in my home?
Treatment differs depending on the size of the mold problem.
For affected areas typically 10 square feet or smaller, home and business owners can treat themselves. If you have health concerns, we can treat your home or business.
Following EPA techniques to clean up mold:
- Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
- Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
- Absorbent or porous materials, such as ceiling tiles and carpet, may have to be thrown away if they become moldy. Mold can grow on or fill in the empty spaces and crevices of porous materials, so the mold may be difficult or impossible to remove completely.
If the HVAC system is contaminated, we provide duct cleaning to eliminate the mold from spreading throughout your home or building.
It is important to remember that it is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
