Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
Mold can be a problem for any home or business. It can grow in hidden places, like walls and ceilings, and cause damage to your property. If you think you have mold, keep reading for tips on how to spot it and get rid of it.
Check Your Home for Mold
The first thing you should do is check your home for mold. Mold is often hidden inside walls and other areas that don't get much sunlight, so it's important to look carefully at these areas when you're checking for mold damage.
