The state of Florida in and of itself is replete with moisture. In fact, in this sponge of a state, it’s all but impossible to escape the humidity and water-slogged air. One of the worst effects of this moisture, of course, is the resulting mold that can begin to grow within the deepest crevices of your house despite any and all dehumidifying efforts on your part.
But what if you’re trying to sell your house? How do you get rid of that mold prior to entering the market?
Your first step is—and should always be—to approach cautiously and handle the situation with care. Oftentimes, inhaling mold particles can be unhealthy for your body, if not outright hazardous. Therefore, you’ll want to start with testing the mold to see what type of battle will be waged between your walls… and you may want to jump to hiring professionals if your health or safety is in question.
Next, you’ll want to seek out the source of moisture that led to the mold infestation in the first place. Seal any leaks and patch any damage done to the house itself, such as a leaking roof, and check to see if any of your windows or doorways may be in need of additional sealant in order to prevent further influx of damp air. Caulk may be your best friend in this instance, and also check your gutters to see if they may be in need of cleaning.
If you are not in need of professional aid, you can then use store-bought mold removers to systematically comb through your house, applying the remover to whatever mold you come across or any areas you deem to be at risk for developing mold in the future. Disinfect the area in question and safely dispose of whatever items you used to get the job done.
If you do need more professional help, however, be sure to avoid scam companies who will take advantage of you but leave you in the same musty situation!
