Mold Remediation Should Not Be A DIY Project

6/21/2017 (Permalink)

Do-it-yourself projects can be a great way to save money while fixing things up around your home or business. However, certain DIY projects shouldn’t be done yourself; some require the attention of a certified professional. One DIY project that many try to tackle by themselves is removing mold. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some mold that you can take care of with everyday cleaning products, such as mold that is growing inside of your shower. However, when it comes to large infestations, you need to step back and hire a trusted remediation company that is trained and experienced in removing mold from your home. That is where SERVPRO of The Hill Country comes in!

When you find a mold colony growing along the outside of a wall, it is usually just the tip of the iceberg. It isn’t until you start removing the drywall and/or insulation that you can see the full extent of the affected areas. Attempting to remove mold yourself can actually make the situation worse. Agitating the mold causes the spores to be released into the air. These spores can float throughout your duct system and home, and if they land in a spot where the conditions are right, these spores will reproduce and mold will begin to grow in a different area of your home. This is why it is important to hire a certified mold remediation company like SERVPRO of The Hill Country. Our highly-trained technicians treat your home as if it were their own. They don’t cut corners to get the job done fast; they take the extra precautionary measures to ensure that the job is done properly. If you discover mold in your home or commercial building and aren’t really sure what the next step is, calling SERVPRO of The Hill Country is a great place to start. Our friendly office staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have and set up an appointment for our “Mold Guru” to come out and give you an estimate.
