What You Should Do If You Suspect You Have Mold in Your Home

When it comes to mold, it is possible for it to be dangerous to your health, or it could possibly be harmless. To be on the safe side, it’s always best to be proactive and remedy the situation if you know you have mold. However, what should you do if you suspect you have mold, but you are not really sure? The following three tips will ensure that you cover all your bases and diminish any fungal threat in your home.

Get Your Home Tested for Mold

If you suspect you have an invasion of mold, then you should consult a professional. Fortunately, our team at Inspections Plus is well trained in detecting the slightest growths of mold. With our proprietary technology, we can determine if the level of mold in your home is abnormal—higher than the content typically found in the air.

It’s also important to keep in mind that mold inspections aren’t just for homeowners who plan to live in their home for years. If you anticipate selling your home, then you may want to consider getting a mold inspection. It’s a great way to market your home when there is a lot of competition. A safe home is an attractive home for potential buyers.

Eradicate Any Known Threats

Once mold is detected, then you should work with professionals to devise a plan to remedy the mold in your home. When it comes to getting rid of mold, it’s important to resolve the underlying problem that led to mold in the first place. If you have a leaky roof or pipe, then we can make recommendations so that you can correct the problem.

After you’ve resolved the problem, then a professional mold remediation team can work with you to eradicate the mold in your home. Most professionals offer a variety of solutions that will increase your chances of getting rid of your mold for good. From removing furniture and belongings that are overtaken by mold to sanitizing your home completely.

Keep Your Home Clean and Dry

Ultimately, the best way to ensure that you don’t have to worry about mold growth is to ensure that you keep your home clean and dry. Moisture encourages mold growth, so it makes sense to fix leaks as soon as possible.

At Inspection Plus, we want to help you keep your home healthy for your family. Unfortunately, mold reduces the quality of the air you breathe. If you have problems breathing, notice family members with watery eyes, or they demonstrate other symptoms associated with hazardous mold, give us a call immediately.
