Got Mold?

This home in Birmingham, AL found mold growth in their garage

Mold can be in your home and not even realize it. Whether you see the affected areas or not, here are a few things you can do! First, if you see visible mold, do not mess with it. When mold is disturbed, it can release microscopic mold spores. When this happens mold can circulate inside your home using your HVAC system and any fans you have on. This makes it so the affected areas grow and become larger. Check out what to do and not do.

What Should You Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and ALL fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO® of Birmingham for mold remediation services.

What Should You Not Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold
