Discovering mold in your home can be devastating. Not only can mold damage the structure of your home and cause significant property damage, it can also have serious health effects and destroy the quality of the air in your home. The key to dealing with mold is to make sure it is removed effectively the first time so it doesn’t return. Here is a helpful guide about what to do if you discover mold in your home, from the mold remediation experts at Certified Asbestos Removal.
Have Your Home Professionally Tested
The most important thing to do if you suspect a mold infestation is to have your home tested professionally. While many forms of mold are dangerous to your health, there are also species of mold that are not harmful and it can be difficult for the untrained eye to tell the difference. A professional mold inspection will be able to determine the exact species and scope of the infestation, giving you the knowledge necessary to decide the best course of action.
Talk To Your Doctor
If you’ve experienced any health-related issues due to a mold infestation, such as rashes and skin irritation, sore throat and itchy eyes. These could be symptoms related to the mold infestation and should be examined by a medical professional as soon as possible. Once the mold is removed these health issues should subside but it’s still a good idea to speak to a doctor if you’ve experienced any health issues related to a mold infestation.
