  • Wear Protective Gear: When dealing with mold, protect yourself by wearing gloves, goggles (without ventilation holes), and a mask or N-95 respirator.
  • Improve Ventilation: Ensure proper ventilation in your home, especially in areas prone to moisture, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.

2. Prevent Mold

If you’re dealing with small patches of mold, you can take the following steps to address the issue:


  • Address Moisture Issues: Fix any leaks, clear gutters, and ensure proper drainage away from your home’s foundation.
  • Use Exhaust Fans: Install exhaust fans in key areas to reduce humidity levels.

  • Run a Dehumidifier: Maintain a lower overall moisture level in your home.

However, for hidden mold or extensive growth, it’s crucial to call a professional. Hidden mold can be more challenging to detect and remove.
