If you are dealing with household mold, it is probably a
good idea to determine just what kind of mold it is. Different types of house mold have to be
addressed different ways. The most
common mold, like what you see on your shower stall, is fairly harmless and
easily removed. Others, such as black
mold, are quite insidious and can be dangerous to your health.
House mold symptoms include a musty smell, and a furry,
downy growth on surfaces or organic matter.
Mold can establish itself within 48 hours of a water damage event,
spread rapidly, and prove extraordinarily difficult to remediate. See house mold pictures to the right.
House mold removal is best handled by a professional,
someone with the experience and the equipment to take care of the problem and
do so correctly the first time out. Mold
remediation is an exact science, and should only be done by somebody trained
and certified to deal with it.
You should look for a company that is IICRC or RIA
certified, and offers mold removal and mold remediation as part of its various
restoration services. IICRC
certification guarantees 24/7 response, trained staff, the latest in mold
removal equipment and techniques, as well as accountability and credibility for
the provider. The result should be a job
well done and peace of mind for the homeowner.
