Your Mold Assessment Checklist
Whether you find mold in your home, or in a commercial building, there are quite a few things to keep in mind first. With professional mold remediation, you won’t need to worry about cleaning up the mold and making sure you’ve really tackled the problem, as this is left to the professionals in the craft, but you may want to consider a few things as you’re assessing your mold situation in order to keep your mold remediation professionals informed.
At AA Action Waterproofing, our waterproofing professionals can assess your mold situation, determine what type of mold is being worked with, and eradicate the mold from your space, but you still may want to craft a mold assessment checklist if you’re looking to call in the professionals. By assessing your mold problem, you can keep your remediation professional informed on your individual mold issue, and a few things that should be kept on your mold assessment checklist are:
- Determine the estimated size of area – Mold is not a substance that is known to stay in one place, so you’ll want to determine the estimated size of your affected area. While mold will tend to hide in cracks, crevices, and areas not often seen, it’s still a good idea to determine just how large of a space has been affected by the mold, and to communicate this to your mold remediation professional.
- Clean up small issues – Any property that has been damaged by the mold or has come into contact with it should be assessed promptly. When it comes to mold and property damage, time is of the essence, and you’ll want to safely remove any belongings near the mold quickly to dry outside. If belongings have grown mold, you can also attempt cleaning them depending on how severe the mold issue has grown.
- Contact a remediation professional – Once your mold problem has been assessed, and your damaged property removed, you’ll then want to call in the professionals to test and remove your mold from your space. Because mold can be dangerous and tricky, calling in the pros is always recommended.
