Toxic Mold Clean Up
All mold, whether toxic or not should be cleaned up the same way – carefully and safely to protect your health and not spread harmful spores into the air. If you find mold growing on a surface, plan to clean it up right away. Learn how to carefully clean up the surface mold prior to conducting the leak or other problem investigation.
