What to Do If You Find Mold During Spring Cleaning

If you happen to find mold like this during your spring cleaning, give us a call!

Ah, spring. A time of joy, warmth, and rejuvenation. But it’s not all fun and games when the season turns to spring.  It’s also a time of serious cleaning. Spring cleaning is an annual tradition in many households, and it’s generally a pretty productive time. However, spring cleaning can also mean spring discovering, when you move a box in the basement or take some cleaning supplies out from under the sink and discover that you’ve been growing some mold in the dark, damp areas of your home. If you’re unlucky and find some mold during your spring cleaning, here are some expert tips to address the problem.

Mold Remediation

First off, mold remediation is a tricky business that’s best done by a professional. Mold fungus and individual spores are microscopic and tough to remove, so it’s likely that untrained attempts at mold removal won’t be entirely effective. If this is the case, it’s entirely likely, if not probable, that your mold problem will grow back en force from the small pieces you leave behind. Our trained mold removal technicians will come and join your spring cleaning efforts with updated and refined techniques and equipment to fully eradicate your mold problem.

Mold Prevention

Of course, the best way to deal with mold is to not have to deal with it at all. To do that, you’ll have to be attentive to possible sources of water damage, and deal with any signs of water damage quickly before the mold even has a chance to grow. This can range from diligently checking your ceiling for roof leaks, to checking under kitchen appliances for leakage, to ensuring that your home’s foundation is properly waterproofed.

The spring rainy season is coming — don’t let mold find its way into your house by way of water damage! Use this spring cleaning season to find any existing mold problems so we can come get them taken care of to give you a fresh start this spring!
