Do I need to hire a mold remediation/removal expert to remove mold, or can I do it myself?
If you feel confident identifying a common type of mold that is limited in one area of your property, you might wish to remove it yourself after you repair whatever the cause may be (or it’ll return). Just remember that you must carefully clean the affected area to completely remove any mold spores, even if you apply an antimicrobial and they appear to be gone. Even dead mold spores can cause problems for those with allergies or asthma, and they should be fully removed. Most mold-affected indoor areas should be remediated by certified, trained professionals using the proper equipment to prevent further contamination. Just disturbing a larger area of molds can distribute spores throughout the property. Call CATCO to assist you with this, for peace of mind, at 800-642-2826.
