What To Do If Your House Has Mold (Or You Think It Does)

Black mold is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Known for causing long-term adverse health effects, making your family sick in the short-term, and its unsightly appearance, mold not a welcome house guest. It can also cause structural damage and harm your home, too. If you think your home has mold, here’s what you should do.

How Do I Know If My Home Has Mold?

Aside from seeing black mold growing on your walls or ceilings, a mold problem not always easy to detect. If you can see it—and it’s black mold—you may have a major, major growth issue on your hands. Don’t see anything at all? Experiencing asthma flare-ups or smell a funny odor? Notice a water leak in the wall? Your home could still be mold-prone. If you have a sneaking suspicion that mold is the culprit for any ailments or you’ve experienced water damage, you’ll want to test your home for the fungus.

My House Has Mold. What Do I Do Next?

If your test comes back positive and you have mold, don’t panic. Almost all homes have mold somewhere—and small cases can be repaired simply by cleaning the area with mold-killing cleaning supplies. For major cases, though, you may need to hire professionals.

Hire professionals for mold removal.

What do we mean by professionals? Mold removal specialists typically work in the home restoration industry—and most home restoration companies have technicians that are skilled in mold removal processes. You can call many of these companies for a free consultation—and they will give you a quote on how much it’ll cost to remove.

Avoid scams.

Don’t let “professionals” scam you by overcharging you for “mold removal services”.  When hiring a professional restoration company, it’s best practice to get two to three quotes and compare them. You’ll be able to get different opinions on next steps and a chance to compare prices. If a price is really low or really high compared to the others, throw that one out—they could be scamming you.

Keep your eyes peeled.

Proper home maintenance will keep mold growth at bay, but you should always keep an eye out. You might not be aware of any toxic mold in your home, but anywhere that’s dark and damp is the perfect breeding ground for mold growth. Check hidden areas (behind furniture, fixtures, and appliances) often if you suspect a mold problem will occur.

  • 5 star review  Wow! Zach came over same day to give us a roof inspection. I've never been so impressed with a home service as we were with Zach. He was super quick, incredibly knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and had loads of ideas for fixes. Best of all? He was HONEST. We knew our roof had some hail damage but he said that it was all cosmetic and that we didn't need a new roof. His inspection didn't cost us a penny and now we have piece of mind. Call Zach! You won't regret it.

  • 5 star review  Really amazing experience. I live in an HOA, so there were several units getting new roofing. The timeline and details were thoroughly explained, and we had communication and contact information provided before construction started. The roof is great, project finished on time, and cleanup timely. The project manager was awesome and went above and beyond even finding and attaching a bracket for my flag pole and every small detail like house numbers and lighting was given full attention.

  • 5 star review  Paul and Adam delivered on an unbelievable bathroom renovation that met the needs for my girlfriend’s ADA requirements and to make necessary updates to the floor plan. The 970 Services team showed up on time everyday, worked tirelessly on every little detail, and cleaned the working areas after each day. The resulting bathroom was phenomenal and outperformed my expectations. I’ll be using 970 Services on future home renovations knowing that I’ll be getting the best service in Fort Collins.
