Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
Tips for When You Find Mold in Your Home
- Don’t panic. Mold can happen in everyone’s home, especially in bathrooms or damp basements.
- Contact your insurance provider to find out if mold removal is covered under your policy. In most cases it may be, but it may depend on the cause of the mold.
- It is beneficial to have the mold tested to see what kind of mold you are dealing with and to what extent your home has been affected.
- Make any necessary changes to minimize mold in your home (caulk around water fixtures, fix any roof leaks, clean gutters, etc.).
- Decide with your mold specialist whether it is safe to remove yourself or whether hiring a professional to remediate is a good idea. Once removed, retest your home to measure mold levels.
