A mold outbreak shouldn’t be taken lightly and has nothing to do with a lack of cleanliness. There are approximately 12 different types of molds that can infest structure and swift remediation is essential. Individuals should never attempt to address mold on their own. It’s a job for professionals that have the special training required to remove it safely and prevent contamination of other areas.

The cost of mold remediation will vary, depending upon the size of the colony, the severity of the infestation, and its location. Professionals charge between $13 and $28 per square foot, on average, for a total of about $3,000. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Variables include the number of individuals needed to remove any affected areas ranging from walls and floors to bathroom cabinets.

The longer individuals wait to call in a professional, the more extensive the contamination will become and the higher the cost will be. Don’t wait until there’s a need for a whole-house remediation job. The cost of remediation includes far more than mold removal. There’s testing to ascertain what type of mold is present. After the mold has been eradicated, there can be wallboard, insulation and flooring to replace.

Mold is a type of fungus and only needs darkness and moisture to thrive. If the source of the moisture that precipitated the mold growth is a leaky pipe or roof, it will have to be repaired or replaced to prevent another infestation. Be on the lookout for signs of a damp environment where mold can grow such as a termite infestation.

The growth of mold can occur anywhere, even in air conditioning units and pipes. Mold can aggravate allergies and affect overall health. The fungi can trigger an asthma attack, cause sneezing and runny nose, along with itching, wheezing and shortness of breath. Anyone that suspects a mold infestation can have mold testing performed.
