Mold Clean Up

Cleaning Mold in Your Home

Once you have discovered a source of indoor mold using your MoldCheck™ Mold Test Kits and The Building Detective Guide™, you’ll need to carefully clean it up as soon as possible – using extreme care when cleaning in order to protect your lungs and eyes and not to spread the tiny mold spores.
