What Should I Do if I Suspect Mold?
- Start with an inspection by a hygienist or other qualified professional to determine if you have mold and if it is harmful mold or not.
- The next step is to locate the source of the moisture causing the mold and stop additional moisture from entering your home or business.
- Once the source of the moisture has been treated there needs to be immediate action taken to dry out the affected wet or damp areas.
- Next is to find all the spots in your home or business affected by mold. Once the affected areas have been located, the type of mold needs to be identified through testing so it can be properly remediated.
