Mold Removal by Professionals


If during an inspection, mold is found in your home, you'll need to take the next step: mold removal. A professional service like Stabilize can handle mold removal in all rooms of the house, including basements, attics, kitchens, bathrooms.




Can I remove mold myself?


The average homeowner can likely handle mold removal on their own if: 

  • The mold only covers a small area.
  • The mold is growing on easy-to-clean surfaces like glass, metal, tile, tubs, or sinks.

A homeowner should hire a professional for mold removal if:

  • The mold covers a large area (greater than three feet by three feet, according to the EPA).
  • Mold develops after flooding with water that might be contaminated with sewage or other potentially hazardous substances.
  • There is mold in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system
  • You have moldy wood that cannot be removed and replaced, so the moldy area needs to be sanded and encapsulated instead
  • You have a medical condition that might be made worse by increased exposure to mold, like asthma, environment allergies, or an immune system disorder

Is Mold Removal Safe?


Exposure to mold is dangerous and can cause lasting health issues. At minimum, an individual attempting mold removal should have an N-95 particulate respirator approved by the National Institute For Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).


How do I know if I've been exposed to black mold?

Chronic coughing and sneezing, irritation to the eyes, mucus membranes of the nose and throat, rashes, chronic fatigue and persistent headaches can all be symptomatic of black mold exposure or black mold poisoning. In particularly severe cases of prolonged exposure, black mold health effects can be more dangerous.


Unfortunately, for instances where mold has spread to porous building materials - such as drywall, insulation, and baseboards - the mold removal will likely have to include discarding those materials.

These materials are relatively inexpensive to replace and difficult to impossible to restore to their previous uncontaminated condition.


After mold is physically removed from its source, the air should be cleaned of airborne mold spores using HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) air scrubbers and air exchange.


Is Mold Removal Covered Under Insurance?

Generally speaking, home insurance policies won't cover mold damage that's resulted from something preventable, like a water leak, flooding, or high humidity. Check with your policy provider for details.

Home insurance companies also typically don't pay for maintenance issues that insurers think a homeowner should have prevented - this makes it crucial that homeowners schedule a mold inspection before they notice mold spreading (if mold is already visible, there's not much sense in pre-testing).




There are some instances where insurance will cover you, including:

  • An ice dam forms in a roof gutter during a rough winter and water backs up under your shingles. The water leaks into your attic, soaks your attic floor and insulation, and creates mold.
  • A pipe bursts in your home and dumps gallons of water on the floor and saturates drywall while you're at work. Mold begins to form before you call.
  • A washer hose springs a leak and damages behind your washer. The washer hose isn't old, you stop the leak, and report the damage immediately, but not before mold forms.
