8 Tips to Cleanup Mold

1. Wear Personal Protective Equipment to protect your eyes, nose, mouth, and skin.

2. Anything that was wet with flood water and can't be cleaned and dried completely within 24 to 48 hours should be taken outside.

3. Open as many doors and windows when you are working, and leave as many open as you safely can when you leave.

4. When electricity is safe to use, use fans and dehumidifiers to remove moisture.

5. If you use cleaning products, do not mix cleaning products together.

6. Clean surfaces with water and detergent.

7. Don't paint or caulk over mold as it will not prevent the mold from growing.  

8. Dry your home and everything in it as quickly as possible, preferably within 24-48 hours.

Mold Can Grow Hidden Behind Wallpaper

Given food, moisture, and a dark space, mold can thrive in a variety of spaces. Unfortunately, that includes spaces that are hidden from your day-to-day view, like behind your wallpaper.

If you notice peeling edges of your wallpaper, in a moisture-heavy room or smell a moldy odor, you may have hidden mold. Lift a corner, near the floorboard or other out-of-sight areas to look behind the wallpaper. Keep in mind that removing the wallpaper can lead to a large release of spores, so before removing all of it, consider hiring a remediation company.

Mold Damage

This is what happens when water intrusions are not quickly and PROPERLY mitigated: mold growth.  Here you'll see a contamination extending a good foot high off the floor.  At the time of a flood, many property owners tell us, "It'll dry on his own." We say yes it will . . . over an extended period of time.  Seeing is believing -- do you think the water damage here dried out fast enough on its own?
