In addition, people with existing conditions like asthma may experience issues if they are exposed to mold. There's also the risk of respiratory infections or conditions like bronchitis. For toxic mold, the effects can be pronounced, including:
There's also potential risks when it comes to your home itself. In some cases, mold can damage parts of your home, like paint, wallpaper, or drywall. Having to replace these can be a major expense.

DIY Mold Remediation In Homes Is A Big Mistake!
There’s a lot of false knowledge that gets handed out in the DIY world
For example, a lot of people may suggest that bleach is the proper way to kill mold, but this isn’t the case at all. This is just one misconception of many.
Professional companies wear protective gear as well as take the time to isolate the affected area before the remediation process starts. These are specialized techniques that require training DIYers don't have.
The result could be putting yourself at risk as well as giving the mold a chance to spread to other areas of the home.
This is probably the biggest place where DIY mold remediation falls short. Generally, what people do to get rid of mold themselves is seek it out based on sight and smell.
This isn’t always going to help you find all the mold in your home including the foundation, attic, or even behind your walls. In some cases you may need to remove parts of the home to get to the mold. And that should be left up to the experts.

A Game Plan For When You Suspect Mold In Your Home
The initial growth stages of mold take only 24-48 hours to develop! Here is action plan list that can help property owners & mold sensitive people be better prepared before a mold remediation company shows up.
Step 1 -Take care of water:
You can prevent things from getting too out of hand by taking the initiative for trying to remove outstanding water. It is suggested to wear some sort of protective clothing, including an n-95 respirator, protective gloves, and some sort of apron when doing this type of work.
If you suspect any major leaks it's best to call a plumbing company instead of trying to fix it yourself.
Step 2 -Be ready to fix adjacent issues:
Mold growth can also be a symptom of another problem in your house, like a leak.
Depending on what contractors you use, you may be able to get mold remediation services and other necessary repairs done at once. It’s good idea to be proactive in planning & budgeting for these projects beforehand.
Step 3 - Mold inspection vs. mold testing:
Home mold tests can be unreliable. You’re better off having a mold remediation company coming in to do an inspection on your property. An inspection is basically a professional evaluation of your property to see if you have an elevated mold problem and if a professional mold test is necessary.
On the other hand, mold testing includes physical sampling and detailed evaluation of data that reveals the origin, identity, location of mold growth greater than 10 sq. Ft. Mold testing is done by a 3rd party mold assessor that is separate from the mold remediation company.
Please take a note of this that it’s a conflict of interest if the person administering the testing is also doing the mold removal.
Step 4 -Check with your insurance company:
In general, insurance companies only cover mold remediation costs if the mold issue stems from what is called a “covered peril.” This includes sudden, accidental situations, like when your gutters cause a roof leak and sudden mold.
By comparison, mold that slowly grows in your shower likely won’t be covered. Situations like natural disasters generally require their own insurance. Take pictures of the mold and related damage if you plan on filing a claim.
