Mold is a nasty problem that puts the health of your home and your loved ones at risk.
If you suspect your home has a mold problem, read the following important tips:
Do not disturb or attempt to remove anything if you suspect it is contaminated with mold.
Many types of mold can be hazardous to your health and mold can spread into other areas of the property if not handled properly.

Prevention is the first line of defense against mold. Eliminate excess water and high humidity to prevent mold from growing.

Inspect roof regularly, around chimneys, dormers, vent stacks and flashing. Many leaks begin in these areas.
Inspect and clean gutters regularly to prevent water from pooling or dripping.
Inspect bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and any place where water can leak and cause mold growth.
Install proper ventilation in any room where water is piped in (kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements)
