Cleaning up mold is a step-by-step process that should be handled by professionals to ensure complete removal and prevent recurrence. The process starts with a thorough inspection to identify the extent of the infestation. This is followed by containment to prevent the spread of spores during cleanup. The mold itself is then removed, and the affected areas cleaned and sanitized. Lastly, the source of the moisture that enabled the mold growth is addressed to prevent future infestations.
The cost of mold cleanup varies depending on the extent of the mold infestation, the size of the affected area, the type of mold present, and the amount of damage caused to the structure.

The Flood Company offers a free inspection for insurance-covered events and numerous financing options to help with the cost.
Before mold cleanup begins, you should take a few steps to ensure the process goes smoothly:
  • Call a professional mold remediation company like The Flood Company to inspect your property.
  • Make a list or take photos of any visible mold infestations for record-keeping.
  • Refrain from cleaning the mold yourself, as this can inadvertently spread spores and further contaminate your property.
  • Prepare to vacate your property if necessary during the cleanup process to protect your health.
Yes, black mold, also known as Stachybotrys chartarum, can be dangerous. It releases spores when it feeds on organic materials in common household materials like drywall, carpet, insulation, or sub-flooring that have been exposed to moisture. These spores, when they enter the air, can cause allergic reactions, breathing issues, and other health problems especially in individuals with weakened immune systems or mold allergies. It’s essential to address mold issues promptly to ensure the safety and health of all inhabitants.
