What to Do When Renovations Require Mold Remediation and Removal

Posted by on October 30, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off on What to Do When Renovations Require Mold Remediation and Removal

When you own a house, you plan to make it into the best possible home for your family. Often homeowners scrimp and save to be able to do a major renovation that will transform the home into their dream. Unfortunately, there are always a few bumps in the road when renovating a house, and  discovering mold is a common one. When that happens, contact a reputable mold remediation and removal company right away.

What usually happens is you’re doing a little demo and you discover something that looks questionable. You’re tempted to keep going with the project, hoping it’s not mold. But at this point, you need to consider your family, and know that ignoring a mold problem will not make it go away. In fact, the one thing we do know is that mold is a living, growing organism, so it’s only going to get bigger, and with that usually come respiratory problems.

So instead of covering up the issue, call in some experts to determine whether the problem is, actually mold. Those with experience can sometimes tell just from looking at it, and other times it’s necessary to run a few tests. You might get lucky and it turns out to be just some discoloration or staining, but at least you’ll know.

If it turns out you do have mold, then it needs to be dealt with accordingly. That means evacuating the space and having mold remediation specialists deal with the problem. It’s a process, and every situation is different, but you can rest assured that it will be fixed and air quality tests performed so you know it’s safe to come back into your home.

Every renovation has some extra costs that pop up, and mold remediation is a common one. While no homeowner wants to have to deal with unexpected expenses, it’s part of owning a home. In these situations, most people are happy to have the peace of mind that they are living in a house free from mold issues.
