In this video, you will learn about mold remediation. Mold remediation is a big task. It is a good idea to ask family and friends so the process can go faster.
Before you step into a house with mold, it is a good idea to make sure you have the proper PPE equipment that is required for that type of mold. There are many different types of mold. Most of the time, though, it is easy to identify it and make a plan of action from there. Once you have ensured your safety, gut and remove all water damaged material from the home. Dry out the home and use a moisture level meter to make sure the moisture is starting to go down. When the moisture meter reads below 17%, you can begin treating for mold. Identifying where there are cracks in the insulation will allow for an easier repair. The cracks are allowing the moisture in and breed a good environment for the mold. Using plastic wrap and duct tape to seal these cracks short-term helps prevent the spreading of mold spores. If you are interested in learning more, keep watching this video for more information.
