What should I do if I have mold?
Once you discover mold in your home, its important to remember that it can travel very easily to surrounding areas. You can think of mold the same way you think of dust particles. Anywhere dust can go mold can go. There are ways to prevent mold, but if you find mold growing in your home, Its very important to treat the surrounding areas and fully and properly.
Many people falsely believe that bleach kills mold. However, bleach will generally only wash out the color of the spore without actually removing the spore itself. Most mold spores are chlorine resistant making them immune to things like bleach. The best way to ensure all mold is removed from your home is to have a professional anti-fungal anti-microbial treatment of the affected areas.
