Mold - Who Should Do The Cleanup

Who Should Do The Cleanup

Mold In Crawlspace

Who should do the cleanup depends on a number of factors. One consideration is the size of the mold problem. If the moldy area is less than about 10 square feet (less than roughly a 3 ft. by 3 ft. patch), in most cases, you can handle the job yourself.


However, if there has been a lot of water damage, and/or mold growth covers more than 10 square feet, it is best to consult with a professional.  In small amounts, mold spores are usually harmless, but when they land on a damp spot in your home, they can start to grow. When mold is growing on a surface, spores can be released into the air where they can be easily inhaled. If you’re sensitive to mold and inhale a large number of spores, you could 

experience health problems. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints.


If you choose to hire a contractor (or other professional service provider) to do the cleanup, make sure the contractor has experience cleaning up mold.  Check references and ask the contractor to follow the recommendations in EPA’s guide Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings, the guidelines of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygenists (ACGIH), or other guidelines from professional or government organizations.
