SHOULD YOU OR A PROFESSIONAL CLEAN UP THE MOLD?


mold clean up professional. Naturally, a professional contractor who has experience in eliminating mold will do a better job.

However, money is the issue here.

Could you do by yourself more or less what the mold specialist could do? Are there some jobs too big for you to handle on your own?

When You Can Do It Yourself

Consider first the area of clean up. If the area is less than 10 square feet, or 3 feet by feet patch, then it's very likely a job that you can handle and save yourself a lot of money in the process.

When cleaning a mold-covered area, it is important to eliminate the source of the moisture. If you destroy the mold but then allow the source of wetness to remain the mold will probably grow back. (At least a long lost relative of the original mold, seeking revenge)



When A Professional Is Needed

There are some circumstances though in which you definitely would want to consult a professional. If the mold-infested areas are beyond 10 square feet then it may be too overwhelming a task for one individual to clean up. If sewage water or other highly contaminated water caused the mold, then it is advisable to contact a professional.

Mold caused by sewage water will be more difficult and dangerous to clean up. If you have concerns about your own health and your body's reaction to mold, then it might be a good idea to hire a professional. Many forms of mold can quickly produce volatile reactions in persons who have allergy sensitivities.

Ventilation Systems
Also, if you suspect you have a heating, air conditioning or ventilation system that has become contaminated with mold then it may be wise to consult a contractor. You can tell if this is the case by observing any mold near the intake as well as by knowing the condition of the system. (If there's a moisture problem within the system, then mold is very likely already present) Once you know, don't keep running the system, as this will only spread more mold spores and allergens to contend with.



Hire Only The Best
When choosing a contractor to handle your mold problem it is important to select one who has experience in dealing with mold clean up. While many services may advertise home cleaning, they don't necessarily have the knowledge on how to effectively dispose of mold so that it doesn't return. Don't pay for something that you could just as well do on your own!
