It is extremely important to call a mold remediation company as soon as you notice mold. Even if it is a very small area, mold can spread to other areas on the property within 24-48 hours.
As mold grows on moisture and organic materials, the best way to prevent mold is to keep all moisture levels in the home on the lower end.
If you notice musty smells or see any mold growth, it is best to call a mold remediation company that will be able to locate all types of mold on the property.
A professional mold remediation company will use professional EPA approved commercial products and EPA guidelines to remove the mold at the source, so you will not have to worry about it returning in the future.
