The Environmental Protection Agency recommends contacting a professional to address mold infestations that cover more than 10 square feet of surface area. Professionals can employ powerful vacuums and dehumidifiers that are needed to effectively remove an infestation from a crawl space or hard-to-reach area.
The interior temperatures within most homes create an ideal environment for mold growth. Professional cleanup and removal services may be required to deal with a moisture problem that can lead to repeat infestations or future problems. Experts can also provide testing services that are able to detect the presence of molds that pose a health hazard.
