Mold remediation may be one of the most important things that you do in your home, because it can help you to protect your health. The presence of toxic mold in a home can cause serious health problems for inhabitants, and should always be taken seriously. Although you can attempt your own remediation strategy, if you have extensive mold growth in your home it is always advisable that you contact an expert to help you instead. This is because amateur strategies are less effective, and if you are not using the correct personal protective equipment then you risk exposing yourself to a large amount of mold spores. Here is some information about the main areas of the home which may require mold remediation.
Air conditioning/heating unit
If a HVAC unit is not maintained properly, and the filters and coolant are not changed as regularly as they should be, then it is possible for mold to collect in these areas. Rather than helping to improve the air quality in your home, then these systems could end up having a negative affect if mold is present. When the system is used, it may then end up disseminating toxic spores around the home and throughout the entire ventilation system in some cases. This is why you should have your HVAC system serviced regularly.
The bathroom is a very common place for mold growth, because the conditions are perfect. These rooms are often warm with high humidity levels. If surfaces are allowed to stay wet for a long time, or if the room is not ventilated properly, then it is easy for mold to begin to grow. There are also a lot of organic substances in the bathroom for mold to feed upon. Whilst the bathroom is one of the most common places in the home for mold growth, it is also one of the easiest places to clean using amateur mold remediation techniques. This is because many of the surfaces are designed to be wiped clean.
Because of their tendency to become cold and damp, mold can often be found in basement rooms. The problem is particularly prevalent in basements which have recently flooded, or basements which are also used as utility rooms. You should be very careful about storing bed linens and towels in your basement if you are using it as a utility room, because these items are very susceptible to mold if they are not aired regularly.
Ground floor carpets
If your home has not got proper damp proofing, ground floor carpets can be susceptible to mold. If cold and damp is allowed to come up through the floor, the bottom of a carpet may become moldy. Although this may not be visible when you look at the top of your carpet, it will have a serious affect on your flooring. If you do discover that your carpet has turned moldy, it is important that you employ a professional mold remediation team to have a look at it for you.

‘All Of Me’ singer recalls minor tiffs with Kim Kardashian’s beau
John Legend has revealed that he regularly has disagreements with Kanye West
over the direction of his music, and sometimes dares to go against his wishes.
Kanye isn’t exactly known for being the shy and reserved type, so when he does pipe up with a strong opinion against something John wants, the ‘All Of Me’ singer is sometimes forced to put his foot down.
Speaking of the Daily Star about his producer, the 35-year-old said: “We always have differences of opinion.

“We try to get to a place where we agree on a song, but occasionally I put something on that I love and Kanye isn’t too fond of.”
However, Legend – whose new album Love In The Future was released last year – thinks Kanye’s lack of tact is what makes him so great.

“He is so honest that people think there must be something else behind it, but it’s just him telling the truth as he sees it,” he explained.
“We place a premium on being polite, but it’s not the most necessary thing.
“If you look at what Kanye says and does, it might upset our sense of politeness, but has he ever actually hurt anybody? No.”
