Moisture Problem Leads to Home Mold Removal in Northern, VA

Before contacting the professionals about home mold removal in Northern, VA, you should first find the source of the mold to prevent it from coming back. Once you address the moisture problem, you should then have home mold removal performed by a certified, mold removal environmental specialist.

Where Does Home Mold Grow?

Mold often grows in dark areas of your home that have high humidity, typically found in attics, basements, ceilings, crawlspaces, behind drywall, in windows and under sinks.

  • Attic Mold—Mold can be found in attics coming from a leaky roof or no proper ventilation. Depending on the damage, materials may just need to be cleaned or possibly replaced. Any roof leaks, shingle flashing or ventilation issues must be fixed to prevent the mold from growing back. Then the mold would need to be removed properly by a certified mold professional. If left untreated, mold will continue to grow and can spread to other areas, contaminate stored items in the attic, and lower your property value.
  • Basement Mold—Some basements tend to be damp especially in rainy seasons. Depending on how well your basement is sealed, you may have to reseal your basement and possibly put in a drain to defer the water away from the outside of the house. If materials inside such as insulation, sheetrock, cardboard boxes, wall studs or paneling are infected, you would need to properly remove the mold by completely removing the infected material or cleaning and sealing the area with a mold inhibitor so it will not reappear.
  • Surface Mold—If you have an unfinished basement which is used for storage where there is little or no activity, mold growing is not necessarily producing airborne spores. If the surface that the mold is growing on is damp, mold spores will not become airborne as easily. Sometimes in sample testing, this does not show elevated mold spores although mold is visible. For the safety of your family you would still need to find the source of the moisture and fix the problem so that once your home mold removal is done, it will not grow back.
