Mold spores are present almost everywhere indoors and outdoors.
If you have a mold problem in your home or business your priority should be safety
Mold spores may present a health risk to children, the elderly or anyone with respiratory issues.
The very first step in solving an indoor mold problem is to remove the moisture source; New mold will begin to grow on moist, porous surfaces within 24 to 48 hours. Mold spores thrive on moisture and can quickly become colonies when exposed to water (48 - 72 hours). Moisture control is key to mold control. So you'll want to keep all areas well ventilated and the humidity in your home down as much as possible (less than 45%).
Before mold removal and remediation can begin any source of water must be addressed to keep mold contamination from growing or recurring.
Try and find out the water source of the mold or if it's because of lack of ventilation or trapped moisture. In fact you should regularly check neglected spaces such as attics, crawl spaces or storage areas for mold contamination especially if you intend to sell your home.
One fairly effective way to clean mold is to use detergent solutions which physically remove mold.
If you have water damage, make sure the drywall is dry on both sides because mold loves to eat away at this. It's best to just replace wet insulation.
Molded caulking should be stripped and disposed of.
Make sure carpets, baseboards and rugs are dried and carpet pads are disposed of. These are prime targets for mold contamination.
Stay out of affected areas as much as possible. Do not touch or disturb the mold.
To prevent unintentional spread of mold don't blow air across suspected mold contaminated surfaces. Using fans is great for moisture control and ventilation but use them at a safe distance from the actual mold contamination.
Don't spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.
Move boxes and items away from walls that are infected with mold
Significant mold growth may require professional mold remediation to safely remove the affected building materials and remove the source of excess moisture.
Mold remediation professionals may need a special license. Licensed General Contractors are exempt from obtaining a license and are free to perform remediation.
The goals of remediation are to remove (or clean) contaminated materials, preventing fungi (and fungi-contaminated dust) from entering an occupied (or non-contaminated) area while protecting workers performing the abatement
