Ready To Sell? Here's How To Deal With Mold First

You’ve decided you are ready to sell your home but you’ve discovered a problem: mold. You know that no potential buyer is going to be fine with the mildew smell or the health risks. What’s a homeowner to do? Here, we’ll discuss how to get rid of mold (and keep it gone) before calling your local real estate agent. 

How to Get Rid of Mold in Four Steps

Mold exists everywhere. It’s spores are in the air and it lives on surfaces around us. Some of it isn’t so bad—providing mankind with lifesaving antibiotics like penicillin—while others can be quite dangerous to our health and safety. If you’ve noticed the latter in your home, here’s how to get rid of it ASAP.

1. Identify the source of moisture.

Mold loves dark, cool, and damp places—that’s where it grows best. Determine why the area of growth is damp or wet and limit the moisture at the source or improve the ventilation. 

2. Prepare yourself.

It’s important that you limit your exposure to mold during this process. Be sure to wear a protective face mask over your nose and mouth during the entire cleaning process. It’s best to wear gloves and an eye mask, too, if you have them on hand.

3. Treat the area. 

To treat the area, you’ll need to consider the situation. For hard surfaces, scrub mold off with detergent and water. For more porous areas, only use a damp rag with detergent to remove mold without causing additional damage. To speed up the process, try a mold cleaner that’s specially formulated to fight black mold spores.

4. Wipe it clean. 

Once you can no longer see the mold, wipe down the area with bleach and a damp rag. Let it dry completely before repainting or calling it a success. Once its dry, keep an eye on the area for several days to ensure no mold has returned.

  • 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.

  • 5 star review  My primary contact with 970 Services was through Zach. I found Zach to be very knowledgeable and expert in our conversations about our roof replacement. He was very honest and considerate of our limited time schedule for selling our home. An inspection ordered by the prospective buyers revealed a significantly damaged roof, requiring replacement. Zach confirmed the roof damage and showed us photographs as proof. Zach got back to me the same evening of the inspection with an estimate and schedule for work. All roofers working for Zach were extremely professional and efficient. They cleaned up our yard and neighboring yards as it was an extremely windy day. 970 Services did an excellent job of installing a new roof. The materials and work product are excellent and within budget. Their price was far less than another roofing company had estimated for our prospective buyer. I highly recommend 970 Services for any and all roof work.

  • 5 star review  We had 970 do just about everything- drywall, paint, trim, two stories worth of flooring, bathroom tile black splash, caulking, etc, I cannot speak highly enough of their work ethic and quality. There is not one error in the entirety of their work, and I truly couldn’t be happier working with them. They were flexible when I had unexpected medical situation that disrupted my schedule and they worked with our insurance. 5+ stars!!!
