Mold: Fight the Winning Battle

In the 24 to 72 hours following a flood, your Lafayette, LA home could be prone to serious mold growth. This includes the highly damaging black mold. When you do find mold in your home, however, what is your next course of action? Well, here are two tips on how to keep the damage to a minimum.

1. Assess the Damage

If there is black mold present, don’t assess the damage yourself. In fact, you should be careful not to diagnose the extent of your mold problem on your own. For instance, some mold may not be visible. In cases like this, an indoor environmental specialist can perform a test.

2. Shut Down Your HVAC System

Mold spores are everywhere. Since they travel through the air, they can easily spread from room to room. If you want to win your fight against mold, then you have to be able to stop the mold from spreading throughout the house. You can do this by turning off your HVAC system. Sometimes, mold spores will end up within the system and then spread everywhere through the ventilation system in your home.
