Mold Awareness and Remediation: A Guide for Homeowners

Home » Resources » Mold Awareness and Remediation: A Guide for Homeowners


Make Your Home Clean, Safe and Healthy

Discovering mold in your home can be alarming, and for good reason. Mold is not just a nuisance; it can also pose significant health risks to you and your family. Understanding how to identify, address, and prevent mold can help you maintain a healthier living environment, especially for those with respiratory conditions like asthma or allergies.

Health Risks Associated with Mold

Mold exposure can lead to a variety of health issues. For some individuals, it causes allergic reactions such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Those with asthma or mold allergies might experience severe reactions. Moreover, mold can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs even in people who aren’t allergic to it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provide extensive information on how mold can affect health, emphasizing the importance of managing mold exposure, especially for those with pre-existing health conditions​​​​.

Identifying and Controlling Mold

Mold thrives in moist environments and can grow on a wide range of materials including paper, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood. It’s crucial to identify areas in your home that are susceptible to mold growth and take steps to keep these areas dry. Proper ventilation and fixing leaks promptly are key strategies for preventing mold growth.

When to Seek Professional Help

For minor mold issues, cleaning the affected area with detergent and water might suffice. However, extensive mold infestation, especially after water damage, may require professional remediation services. Experts in mold removal can safely and effectively address the problem, ensuring that your home is safe and healthy. Consider consulting a professional if you’re unsure about the extent of your mold issue or how to address it.

I shared my feedback earlier but we had to use them again. Our basement got flooded after the heavy rain we had over the weekend. The crew arrived within an hour and did all the clean up. Customer service was great as usual. Highly recommended! Thank you!
