What Not to Do When You Think You See Mold in the House

It’s natural to react impulsively to the sight of mold in the home. It’s equally normal to want to take immediate action yourself to get rid of it. However, before you plunge into do-it-yourself mold remediation, a few considerations may prevent you from throwing effort and money at a project likely to produce inadequate results. Here are some things not to do if you think you see mold in the house:

Assume it’s toxic mold. Some mold-like substances inside a structure really aren’t mold or are not toxic. For example, a residue of mineral salts left over from moisture or seepage long ago often forms a white or brown fluffy appearance indistinguishable from mold to the untrained eye. Also, some mold varieties are simply “cosmetic mold”— non-toxic, harmless to the structure, and not requiring treatment. Only a qualified mold remediation professional has the expertise to tell the impostors from the real thing.

Do not depend on bleach to kill mold.  Effective mold remediation includes physical removal, then killing residue on surfaces. First, all growing mold must be physically removed, as well as any building materials where mold growth has infiltrated the surface. Mold residue is not killed by spraying common bleach; live spores survive and mold growth recurs. After complete physical removal of mold and affected materials, remediation experts use EPA-approved fungicides formulated for use against mold to sterilize surfaces.

Believe that dried mold is dead mold. Drying out a mold-contaminated area of the house doesn’t kill the mold. Instead, the mold growth simply shifts into dormant mode, soon to be reactivated by exposure to any trace of moisture, including high humidity. Effective remediation requires total removal and professional application of fungicides to sterilize surfaces.

Think your home is too new for mold. In fact, mold contamination may be “built-in” to brand-new homes by infected building materials, infiltrating rain and other moisture while under construction, and by the lack of an adequate mold inspection by contractors during the building process.

Wondering what to do and not to do if you suspect mold in the home? Contact the experts at Rytech.

Naples FL upstairs unit causes mold problems for our client – 34110

An unattended upstairs unit in a Naples condo complex sprung a leak, causing water damage to 4 rooms and about 350 sq ft of living space. Unfortunately, this leak also spawned mold growth.

Rytech was called to the scene and quickly stabilized the humidity in the condo structure. The water leak was fixed by the upstairs condo owner and Rytech successfully remediated the mold to our clients satisfaction.

Rytech worked seamlessly with the customer’s insurance company, Tower Hill Insurance to ensure all parties were completely satisfied.

The bidet incident of Feb 2021 – Fort Myers 33908

On Feb 1, 2021, Rytech arrived to find the insured had a leak due to a faulty water supply line connected to a bidet in the property above them. The water damage extended into 10 different rooms of the homeowner, impacting approximately 935 SF. Rytech worked quickly to clean up all water damage throughout the home and investigated for Mold in each room. After extensive clean up and dry out, it was determined that all rooms were free and clear of mold. All moisture levels passed acceptable levels and the water damage claim was processed through the insurance company – Tower Hill. Our home owner asked the upstair neighbor to remove their bidet – we have no response on the request.
