Mold, in general, is not dangerous, however it can be when it proliferates and/or produce toxins. But did you know that you do not always need to call a remediation contractor when you spot mold in your home? According to EPA or the Environment Protection Agency, a homeowner can handle the mold remediation process themselves if the mold is not more than 10 square feet.
Most people do not actually realize how serious of a threat mold can be. Although illnesses caused by it are becoming more and more of a problem, symptoms of mold exposure are often taken lightly, most even assume that these symptoms are just from a cold or hay fever.
Mold on walls should not be a cause of panic. Indeed, mold can be a health threat and structural hazard, but as long as you know how to remove mold from walls, you’ll be all right. Mold-infested walls are usually easy to treat. If the infested wall is non-porous, you can easily remove the mold with a wet cloth and/or a mold-killing solution. If it is porous, however, it is likely that you will have to cut away the mold-infested area and replace it.
