How to Prep Your Home for Mold Remediation, St. Augustine, Florida

Do you have mold in your home? It can damage your house and put your health at risk, so it’s important to eliminate it as soon as possible. Schedule a removal with a reputable mold remediation company today to get the process started. Here are several steps to get your home ready for the process.

Remove Your Possessions

The first step you have to take is to remove any family heirlooms, furniture, and other items from the mold-infested area. Sort through what to save and what to throw away; then, thoroughly clean the surfaces of any items you are keeping. Afterward, put them in a safe place until all the mold is removed.

Block Off the Area

Place plastic sheets over the air vents and doorways near the infested space until a mold remediation company can come to your home. These sheets will block the mold from seeping into vents and getting into the air.

Don’t Ventilate

While opening up windows or turning on fans near the moldy space might seem like a good idea, it can actually do more harm than good. Extra ventilation can cause the mold spores to spread, resulting in an even bigger problem. 

Leave the Area Alone

Mold can look quite unsightly, so you may be tempted to remove some of it off with bleach or other cleaning products. Doing this, however, may actually cause the mold spores to become airborne and move to other areas of your home. To prevent further issues, avoid touching the area and allow the mold remediation experts to do their job.
