How to Deal with a Mold Problem

When I bought my dream home five years ago, I never imagined that there would be any problems with it.  We did everything by the book and had a home inspector come out and make sure that everything was okay before putting in our offer.  At the time we were happier than I could have ever imagined, but fast forward to this week and things have changed.

We found mold in our basement.

If it had been a small amount of mold, I would not have worried, but the amount of mold that we found is bad.

Really bad.

In fact, I was so worried about finding black mold that I decided to call a company that specialized in Mold Remediation malibu to come deal with the problem.  I knew that I wasn’t equipped to handle it properly, and since it was a problem that could have lasting effects on our health, I wanted to make sure it was done right the first time.

It was the right thing to do.

The experts came into my home, assessed the situation and came up with a plan as to how we were going to get rid of the mold on the walls once and for all.  They were going to handle all aspects of the remediation so that I wouldn’t have to put my own health at risk, and I feel confident that we will get everything under control.  They are coming here on Wednesday to get started and I feel confident that they will be able to get my home back into a state where I feel safe living here again.
