I have Mold in my Home! What should I do?
South Florida is a beautiful tropical climate, but with that climate comes constant humidity and damp. This is a perfect recipe for mold, as any leaking water will certainly not evaporate but instead constantly soak whatever surface it happens to settle upon. Mold is a common problem for homeowners in this area, but for those who have relocated from a drier, cooler climate you are likely unfamiliar with how to handle the discovery of mold in your home. Here are some things you should do right away to resolve the issue and get your property back to pristine condition.
First, if the mold is in close proximity to the bedrooms in the home, or if there is a substantial amount, you should temporarily evacuate the home in order to eliminate the potential of illness in your family. Mold can cause all sorts of respiratory problems and infections, and depending on the strain of mold these can be life threatening. Best to avoid running the risk of infection, if possible, and house you and your family in a hotel or rental property until mold remediation is completed. The expense for this temporary relocation, as well as mold remediation, can often be covered by your homeowner’s insurance depending on the details surrounding the cause of the mold damage and other factors.
Now that you have ensured the safety of you and your family, you can engage the services of a mold remediation company to remove the damaged materials as well as any other impacted items in the home. It is important to retain the services of a highly reputable remediation company, as mold impacts both the integrity of your home’s structure as well as the health and wellness of you and your loved ones.
