One of the biggest health concerns people face when owning a home is mold so it’s a good idea to know what is mold and how to treat mold. Mold can pose a serious health risk to anyone who comes into contact with it. It can affect the respiratory system of your body and pose serious problems and if extreme cases even death. Mold should be treated immediately when and if it’s found by a professional mold removal company.
Is you suspect that you have a major mold issue in your home you should never attempt to try and remove it yourself. If it’s a very tiny amount of mold homeowners can remove the mold themselves if certain procedures are followed and the proper protective safety gear is worn. Most people don’t really know what is mold and how to treat.
Some homeowners don’t even know their home contains mold until they put the home up for sale, and the buyer finds the mold when performing a home inspection. This can potentially put the sale of the home at risk, and most of the time will scare off the buyer.
This is why it’s a great idea to inspect your home before putting it for sale to make sure there is no mold present. Mold will normally put out a smell so just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean the home doesn’t have it.
Watch this episode with home inspector Joseph De Bartolo where he will discuss what is mold and how to treat mold.
