3 Reasons to Skip DIY Mold Removal

Mold is easy to grow and fairly easy to kill, so why don’t more people take care of their mold removal process on their own and go the DIY route? Here at On-Deck Restoration LLC, we know more than most how easy some types of mold can be to kill, and we are glad when it works out that way. However, there are some species of mold that do not react kindly to mold removal attempts and will come back time and time again. If you are thinking about taking care of your mold removal on your own, here are a few reasons that we hope will convince you to call our professionals instead.

Mold removal experts know where to look to find your mold

1. Have the right products. Just like you can’t play tennis with a golf club, you can’t get rid of mold very effectively if you don’t have the right tools. Even straight bleach isn’t usually effective. What you need is specialized fungicides that professionals use to kill mold and stop it in its tracks. You can’t get these at a local hardware store.

2. Get to the heart of the problem. When doing mold removal, our professionals are also looking at the reasons why you have mold in the first place. Perhaps there is a leak somewhere that is providing a water source or another issue that is going undiscovered. Unless you stop the source, the mold will just come back.

3. Reach hard-to-reach places. Mold removal experts know where to look to find your mold and have the equipment to do so. With mold removal professionals, you can search all over your property, including hidden areas like within the walls, doorframes, attics, crawlspaces, etc.
