Mold Growth…What to do?

  • DO call a restoration company immediately to have the growth evaluated.
  • DO not disturb the growth. This may cause spores to become air borne and spread spores to unaffected areas.
  • DO not apply direct air movement from fans or your HVAC system to the growth. This also may cause spores to become air borne and contaminate other areas.
  • DO close off the area if possible until a qualified inspection technician arrives.

By law, a technician cannot tell you whether the growth is mold during the first visit. The technician must take a sample to a lab for testing. While results are being processed, keep the affected area closed off as much as possible.
