Mold can continue to grow after a mold removal, with concealed spores lingering in the air after seemingly being removed. When mold is broken down into minuscule spores, it can travel through your home in search of a moist area to settle and grow, especially if it is kept warmer than the rest of your home. Even after a mold removal appointment, it is important to keep an eye out for continued growth and take steps to prevent spores from spreading throughout your home.
Check Quickly and Often
After your mold removal appointment, perform an inspection of your home, searching for any spores in the air or landing on your walls, tables, windowsills, and corners. You will need to look quickly, as mold can spread within a single day. If you find spores, wipe them away with bleach and a damp cloth.
Reduce Humidity in Your Home
Mold feeds off of moisture, rapidly growing in humid locations. After mold is removed from your home, take steps to regulate moisture levels and temperature. Turn on your air conditioner and any dehumidifiers. If you do not have an air conditioner, open the windows to let excess moisture out of your home.
Removed Affected Objects
Chances are, some of your belongings were affected by the mold growing in your home. Take anything that mold attached to and grew on, place them in a trash bag and immediately take them out of the house. If there are affected items that you are looking to keep, put them somewhere warm to air dry or in the freezer to kill the mold before removing it. If your carpet was affected by mold, make sure it dries fully in order to prevent mold from growing again.
