Our first words of advice when dealing with mold are: Don’t Panic!
Few emotions can be as powerful as fear. When we fear for our safety, or health, or the unknown, we tend to make rash decisions that are not in our best interests. So stop, breathe, and think about your options. You can get through this. This is a problem that can be solved.
The second thing you should do when dealing with mold is to conduct a little research. If you plan to clean up the mold yourself, you will want to research mold and methods of mold remediation. You will also want to research mold remediation companies if you plan to hire somebody.
Look in the footer at the bottom of the page for mold resources from the EPA, CDC, and others.
