Discovering mold in your home is never pleasant. Though you may know to call an experienced mold remover to get rid of the problem, you’ll likely have a few questions about the process. The team at Concord Asbestos Abatement in Cabarrus County, NC, wants to help. Their experienced mold and asbestos removal professionals answer four of the most frequently asked questions.
4 Important Questions About Mold Removal & Remediation
1. How Do I Know if I Have a Mold Problem?
If you notice discoloration on your bathroom walls or smell a strange odor throughout your home that no amount of cleaning can get rid of, you may have spores growing in your home. The best thing you can do is contact a professional to test your home for harmful fungi. If the tests indicate the presence of dangerous spores, contact an experienced mold remover.
2. What Is Mold Removal & Why Is It Different From Cleaning the Walls?
Mold removal is the process of eliminating all fungal growth and spores inside a home or building. A professional will use a high-powered chemical solution to attack the spores, killing the mold and reducing the risk of it coming back. While simply cleaning the walls will remove the unsightly stains and buildup, it won’t get rid of the actively growing spores.
3. Can I Handle the Removal Myself?
If your home has only a mild problem, you may be able to control the growth on your own. However, if the mold is in multiple rooms or a physician has expressed concerns over mold-related health issues, it’s best to schedule an appointment with a professional.
4. How Long Will the Process Take?
Most often, remediation can be completed in about a week, but it will depend on the extent of the problem. If the team has to clean multiple rooms or there’s an excessive amount of mold throughout the home, the process could take longer. Concord Asbestos Abatement will provide an estimate before starting the process.
