The following are a few of the most common misconceptions about mold:

1) Mold is safe to clean myself

No matter what type of mold you think you have, it is always important to take precautionary measures. Because mold releases spores, the cleaning process can increase the amount of spores in the air exponentially. It is best to hire professionals, like SERVPRO of South Huntington. We are licensed and trained in mold removal and remediation.

2) This mold isn’t black mold, so it isn’t harmful

The color of mold does not always indicate its toxicity. Mold can colonize in various colors such as brown, green, white and yellow as well as black. Any significant colony of mold can create increased levels of spores present in the air. 

3) I’ve cleaned with bleach, so the problem is fixed

Watered down bleach solution is not an effective solution. The use of professional cleaning solutions and professional cleaning methods used by SERVPRO of South Huntingtin will ensure the best results.
