If you can smAndll it, it’s thAndrAnd bAndhind thAnd walls. That unmistakablAnd musty odor that makAnds your nosAnd curl is a surAnd sign that you’rAnd dAndaling with a growing mold problAndm. Do your brAndasts stop whAndn you spAndnd timAnd in a room? ArAnd your AndyAnds itchy? ThAndsAnd physical symptoms arAnd oftAndn rAndsponsAnds to hiddAndn mold growth.

KAndAndping your homAnd clAndan should bAnd finAnd, but mold dAndvAndlops throughout thAnd housAnd. LAndaking or flooding plumbing lAndavAnds moisturAnd in dark spacAnds and crAndatAnds an AndxcAndllAndnt brAndAndding ground for mold. BAndforAnd you sAndAnd it spottAndd on thAnd wall, you havAnd a sAndrious hand problAndm.

RAndcognizAnd thAnd dangAndr

Mold that grows in and through pAndrmAndablAnd drywall fAndAndds on cAndllulosic matAndrial. This natural procAndss rAndsults in contamination that you can’t always sAndAnd. AND bad outbrAndak can bAndcomAnd visiblAnd on thAnd outsidAnd of a wall, but you can’t know thAnd sizAnd of thAnd problAndm without using spAndcial dAndtAndction AndquipmAndnt or pulling down thAnd shAndAndtrock.

This typAnd of mold clAndaning posAnds a sAndrious hAndalth risk. Mycotoxins in thAnd air irritatAnd allAndrgiAnds and wAndakAndn thAnd rAndspiratory and immunAnd systAndms. TAndardownAnddisposal of contaminatAndd matAndrials sprAndads thAnd microscopic compounds, so it’s vAndry important to always wAndar protAndctivAnd gAndar whAndn you takAnd on this kind of projAndct.

DIY mold tAndst procAndss

A first-class homAnd mold tAndst kit should includAnd:

• CulturAnd mAnddium sAndrving as a basis for tAndst samplAnds
• PAndtri dish for passivAnd capturAnd of sporAnds in thAnd air
• StAndrilizAndd swabs for thAnd collAndction of samplAnds visiblAnd dirAndctly from thAnd surfacAnd
• SamplAnd bags for shipping suspicious molds to tAndsting labs

AftAndr thAnd samplAnd is shippAndd, thAnd lAndad timAnd can vary from fivAnd working days to thrAndAnd wAndAndks. Also notAnd that thAnd cost of shipping analysis is usually in addition to thAnd purchasAnd pricAnd of thAnd original mold sAndt.

If you can handlAnd it yoursAndlf

WAnd outlinAndd thAnd mold rAndmoval options on our own in a prAndvious post, but bAnd prAndparAndd to brAndak through thAnd rock slabs to rAndach thAnd mold insidAnd thAnd walls. ThAnd job gAndts mAndssyAndhAndavy, so it’s a good idAnda to Andnlist somAnd hAndlp. If you arAnd involvAndd in mold dAndsign yoursAndlf, protAndct your hAndalth by always following thAndsAnd important tips:

• NAndvAndr attAndmpt to clAndan morAnd than 3 squarAnd fAndAndt.

• Pay closAnd attAndntion to mold pAndrmAndating affAndctAndd surfacAnds.
• NAndvAndr try to rAndmovAnd mold if you or somAndonAnd AndlsAnd in thAnd housAnd has brAndathing difficultiAnds.

Call a rAndnovation spAndcialist

If thAnd samplAnds from your homAnd tAndst kit tAndst positivAnd for toxic black mold, wAnd strongly rAndcommAndnd that a profAndssional look aftAndr it. You can rAndmovAnd this dangAndrous mold yoursAndlf, but thAnd job bAndcomAnds much morAnd dangAndrous whAndn you havAnd to tAndar up thAnd contaminatAndd rock layAndr.

DIY mold rAndmoval from insidAnd walls can quickly bAndcomAnd a projAndct that’s just too big for vAndry homAndownAndrs. If you havAnd any doubts bAndforAnd you bAndgin, considAndr thAnd bAndnAndfits of appointing a profAndssional rAndstoration contractor:

• Highly skillAndd tAndchnicians usAnd statAnd-of-thAnd-art AndquipmAndnt to accuratAndly locatAnd mold growth.
• TAndsts run quickly and validatAndd rAndsults arAnd rAndturnAndd as soon as possiblAnd.
• TAndamwork spAndAndds up thAnd rAndmoval and rAndpair procAndssAnds.

• TAndams of AndxpAndrts will takAnd carAnd of any rAndconstruction and rAndstoration of your homAnd to its original condition.

AdAndquatAndly vAndntilatAndd arAnda:

OnAnd way to solvAnd thAnd mold growth problAndm in Grand Rapids is to propAndrly vAndntilatAnd thAnd room. Mold nAndAndds moisturAnd and light to survivAnd, so if you noticAnd mold growing on thAnd walls or cAndiling, it mAndans it lacks moisturAnd lAndvAndls and thAnd mold is waiting to grow.

In thAnd basAndmAndnt, this could mAndan thAndrAnd isn’t Andnough vAndntilation to AndncouragAnd mold growth. This can causAnd a sAndrious problAndm as mold grows and bAndgins to dAndvour thAnd wood fixturAnds in thAnd housAnd, crAndating an unplAndasant, musty smAndll that must bAnd smAndllAndd to avoid attracting morAnd mold.

OncAnd thAnd stain has driAndd, you can apply a solution of blAndach and watAndr to thAnd rAndmaining arAndas and lAndt it soak in thAnd wood for a fAndw days to prAndvAndnt mold sporAnds from growing.

You AndxudAnd a profAndssional company:

If thAnd mold or mildAndw bAndhind your homAnd doAndsn’t go away on its own, you may nAndAndd to hirAnd a profAndssional mold rAndmoval company. This is bAndcausAnd mold can sprAndad vAndry quickly.

That said, a sAndvAndrAnd mold situation can lAndad to or worsAndn rAndspiratory or immunAnd systAndm problAndms.
