Think you can paint over mold and make it go away? Think again…hidden mold can reappear in several months…Proper Mold Removal should be performed by a professional mold remediation company.

Beware of a lot of misinformation out there regarding the cleaning and removal of mold!

Many times when we are on mold inspections we see indications where the homeowner has tried to hide mold on walls or ceilings by painting over it to try to fool a buyer that all is ok. The only sure way to know if there are elevated levels of mold in a room or the home itself is by having an air test done. This air test is analyzed by a lab for types of mold present as well as the amount of mold spores present.

Worried about what type of mold may be in your home? Regardless of the type of mold…it needs to go! Mold spores that are at elevated levels can cause various health problems such as triggering asthma or causing allergic reactions. It’s important that you hire a company that follows proper mold remediation guidelines set forth by the EPA, The NYC Guidelines on Assessment and Remediation of Fungi in Indoor Environments as well as the IICRC.
