Concern about mold growth has increased..

Home owners, schools and businesses have become better educated about the health risks of excessive mold exposure.

The EPA has identified health risks that result from exposure to mold. These risks can range from allergic reaction, asthma, or worse. Today, children tend to spend more time indoors and our elderly live stationary lifestyles which put them at a higher risk of contracting airborne illnesses.

Home and business owners often underestimate the severity of mold and the degree of difficulty involved in its removal.

Cleaning with bleach is not an effective solution

There is no doubt that a mild bleach solution is capable of cleaning a hard, non-porous surface. That is why is often used against mildew in shower stalls. Mold on a porous surface like wood or sheetrock however, is another matter completely.

Mold grows in colonies. On a porous surface, it grows deep into the pores much like the roots of a forest would go into the ground. Bleach remains primarily on the surface and does not get into the pores adequately enough to control the mold.

Proper mold remediation requires a containment area to facilitate the careful removal and prevent the spreading of mold spores. Mold remediation is best performed by trained professionals that understand the required processes and procedures needed for proper mold removal and containment.

Bleach can make a mold problem worse!

Who should handle the clean-up mold issues?

Who should handle the cleanup depends on a number of factors.
One consideration is the size of the mold problem and where the mold is located.


If there has been water damage and/or mold growth consult a certified company like Anew Damage Restoration.

If you already have a mold problem act quickly. Mold will damage whatever it grows on. The longer it grows, the more damage it can cause not just to one's property but to one's health as well.

If you suspect that the heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) system may be contaminated with mold one should have the air ducts cleaned immediately, before taking further action. Do not run the HVAC system if it is known or suspected that it is contaminated with mold - it potentially could spread mold throughout the home or building.

If the water and/or mold damage was caused by sewage or other related water, then call in a professional who has experience cleaning buildings damaged by contaminated water.

If you have health concerns, consult a health professional before initiating cleanup.

Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Completely clean mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.

How do I get rid of mold?

It is impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores indoors; some mold spores will be found floating through the air and in house dust. The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present. Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling moisture indoors. If there is mold growth in your home, you must clean up the mold and fix the water problem. If you clean up the mold, but don't fix the water problem, then, most likely, the mold problem will come back. source: epa.gov
