What to Keep in Mind When Treating Mold Damage

Black mold restoration is something that you should not take lightly, as black mold is highly toxic. You need to have the training to know what black mold looks like and how to treat it. Take a bit of time to inspect your home to make sure that it is safe for you and your family to live in.

If you don’t have any cash to spare for a professional to come and inspect and eliminate mold from your home, there are actually testing kits that you can use yourself, and there are also excellent mold mitigation products you can buy.

Where to look first

The first place you should look in is the basement and the bathrooms. All types of mold love these damp and humid areas. Black mold, or any type of mold for that matter, can grow on any kind of surface, be it smooth tiles, countertops, or rough surfaces like concrete floors and walls. That is why it is always important to keep them clean and dry. Once you’ve finished the inspection of the house and found some places where there is, in fact, some black mold growing, you should immediately start mold removal.

Safety first

When doing black mold restoration yourself, you should wear a protective face mask and rubber gloves so that you do not breathe in any spores of the black mold or allow it to come in contact with your skin. Inhalation of black mold spores can cause respiratory problems and other illnesses.

Before you start

You should first make sure that the area is well-ventilated since you will be working with chemicals. If the mold is just growing in a small area, you can easily remove them using plain bleach and water, but if it is a bit more difficult, then you should get an industrial-strength black mold removal product. Be sure to read the labels properly so that you know how to properly use the product, and also be careful not to get any of it in your eyes and mouth.

After you treat the area with the chemicals, you need to make sure that you completely dry it; leftover moisture will only cause the mold to grow once again. Treating the area once is not a guarantee that the black mold will not come back, as it usually takes a couple of treatments before you can be sure that the black mold is totally eliminated.

Consult a professional

If the black mold damage is too much for you to handle, then you should really try getting help from professional mold removal services to get rid of the black mold. There are times when the black mold growth may be in places that you can’t really see, like inside the walls or in the cracks in the floor. 

If you fail to find these infestations, it is highly possible that it will take over your entire home. So if you or a member of your family is displaying signs of mold inhalation (headaches, trouble breathing, etc.) but you can’t seem to find any signs of mold in your home, then it will be in your best interest to get the help of our mold restoration professionals.

Why It’s Important to Remove Black Mold as Soon as Possible

Mold infestations, particularly black mold, are serious health and structural threats that require immediate action. Black mold produces toxins that can lead to allergic reactions, compromised immune systems, and asthma attacks. In a household environment, the presence of mold can also produce a persistent musty odor, degrade indoor air quality, and affect the structural integrity of building materials like moldy drywall. 

In addition, radiant heating systems and air conditioners can circulate mold spores throughout the whole house, further exacerbating mold problems. Hidden mold behind ceiling tiles or within walls might not be immediately visible, but the consequences of ignoring it can be severe. As a result, it’s important to schedule a mold inspection if you suspect a mold problem, and if mold is found, act quickly. 

While the mold remediation cost can vary based on factors like the extent of the mold damage, the total cost of neglecting mold can be much higher, considering potential structural damage and health issues. It’s always advisable to inquire about mold-specific insurance with your insurance company and to understand the total cost, including removal costs and any additional mold remediation costs, before starting mold removal.

Addressing mold issues early on reduces the remediation cost and safeguards the health of your family. Mold prevention, such as fixing plumbing leaks and maintaining appropriate humidity levels, is also critical. If you detect a musty smell or experience allergy symptoms, it’s wise to consult mold remediators, wear protective gear, and use plastic sheeting to isolate the affected areas to protect the rest of the structure.

To permanently kill mold, a combination of cleaning and preventive measures is essential. Mold thrives in damp environments, so the key is not only to kill it but to ensure it doesn’t return. Several solutions effectively kill mold, including a mixture of one part bleach to ten parts water. Hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, and tea tree oil can also be effective mold killers. 

However, for pervasive mold problems or if mold is in your HVAC systems, it’s advisable to consult professional mold removal services. They utilize advanced techniques and specialized solutions for effective mold elimination. Additionally, maintaining dry conditions, repairing leaks, and ensuring good ventilation can prevent mold regrowth.

Black mold doesn’t just go away on its own. While it may become dormant when moisture levels decrease, the mold spores remain and can reactivate with the presence of moisture. Eliminating black mold requires active intervention, either through home remedies or professional mold remediation services. Even after removing visible black mold, spores might still be present in the air. It’s vital to ensure thorough removal and take preventive measures to ensure it doesn’t return, such as fixing leaks, reducing humidity, and improving ventilation.

The time it takes to complete a mold remediation depends on several factors, including the extent of the mold infestation, the areas affected, and the methods used for removal. For minor mold problems, remediation can take a few hours to a couple of days. 

However, for severe infestations, especially in large areas or within HVAC systems, the process might take a week or more. Mold removal experts assess the situation, provide an estimated timeline, and usually work as efficiently as possible to restore the affected area to a safe and mold-free state.

Mold treatment refers to the processes used to clean and remove mold from surfaces, which might involve the use of chemicals, scrubbing, and other cleaning methods. Treatment targets visible mold growth and addresses the immediate concern. 

On the other hand, mold remediation is a more comprehensive approach that aims not only to treat the existing mold but also to address the root causes and prevent future mold growth. Remediation involves identifying the moisture source causing mold growth, fixing it, and taking steps like improving ventilation or using dehumidifiers to prevent the return of mold. 

In short, while treatment deals with the symptom (visible mold), remediation addresses both the symptom and the underlying cause.
