Problems with DIY Mold Cleanup

When mold is discovered, property owners are often tempted to try to handle the remediation on their own. This is alright if it’s a relatively small area, but it can be more trouble than it's worth when dealing with larger areas. It can be difficult to recognize where the mold is coming from, and if the source isn't addressed cleaning the mold is just putting a bandage on the problem. Another issue with DIY mold cleanup is knowing what solution to use for cleaning. Bleach solutions are commonly recommended online, but are not typically the most effective solution and can cause issues if not done correctly. Cross-contamination and spreading can be difficult to prevent without proper containment because mold travels as spores through the air. One of the biggest challenges of DIY mold cleanup is not knowing if the mold has been completely remediated. When dealing with small, non-porous areas, DIY mold cleanup can be satisfactory, but when dealing with large amounts of mold, especially on porous materials like wood, carpet, and drywall it's best to go with professional remediation.

Anytime the moisture levels in your home are at 60% or higher, mold can grow. What's frustrating for many property owners is that they don't see a puddle on the floor or water dripping from the ceiling. When mold grows, the source of the moisture is usually hidden under floorboards or behind walls.

It could be. Because mold spores are microscopic and airborne, you'll end up breathing them into your lungs. Depending on the type of mold and how well your immune system functions, you may develop some serious health symptoms that could end up being the result of mold. That's why a mold remediation company takes mold removal so seriously. The space affected by mold is isolated and contained during cleaning so the spores won't spread to other areas of the house, and the remediation team stays suited up in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the process.

For the majority of surfaces in your home, bleach won't actually get rid of your mold problem. It's the "iceberg effect." Visible mold is usually a small percentage of the actual amount of mold growth. Bleach can't kill mold on porous surfaces like wood, and while tile or fiberglass surfaces can be cleaned with bleach, often the mold has spread far deeper. The reason why mold remediation companies don't recommend DIY cleanup isn't that they want to make more money; they know, in their experience, that a mold problem is usually far more invasive than can be seen with the naked eye. Simply cleaning the surfaces can provide false assurances that you got rid of the mold, only to have it come back time and time again.

Sometimes mold remediation is included if the cause of the mold was a "covered peril" like a burst hot water heater or water damage caused by firefighters extinguishing a fire in your house. Gradual water damage - like from a leaking pipe or hose - will often cause mold growth, but your insurance coverage will usually not cover that by claiming that it was caused by poor maintenance or neglect. If your insurance company denies your claim, you should request an inspection from a mold remediation company that can help you document the source of the mold.

If the inspection/assessment process was able to pinpoint the source and cause of the mold growth, once that source is repaired, you can be relatively confident about the success of remediation. Ask if your restoration technician has the IICRC certification for "Applied Microbial Remediation." You can also request a "post-remediation mold clearance" from a third-party mold inspector to re-test the area for any remaining traces of mold before the area is treated with a sealer or encapsulant to resist future mold growth.
