Mold. It's the dreaded four-letter word of home ownership. While no one likes to deal with mold, the fact is that most homes and homeowners do deal with this issue on a regular basis. There are many different kinds of mold, with some being much worse than others. Black mold is the most well known for being harmful to humans and animals and should be handed by a professional immediately.
There are different ways to remove mold from your home on your own, however enlisting the assistance of a professional remediation company like Water Out is highly recommended for best results.
The first rule of thumb for DIY mold removal is simple – if the area infected by mold is larger than 10 square feet – do not attempt cleaning on your own. If the area is less than this, proceed with caution in the removal of the mold problem!
It is vital that you protect yourself before diving into cleaning up. Use proper gloves, eye protection, and clothing covers before you begin working with any cleansers or chemicals.
While these are amazing do it yourself options to removing mold from your home, they are not the only ways to get rid of the mess. It is important to remember that mold is not something to keep untreated.
