Mold in your home may require a certified mold remediation company

LEWISTON, ID - Fire season is slowing down and while the cold, moist weather is good for fighting fires it may not be so helpful in your home.

Moisture combined with poor air circulation is a leading cause to mold buildup in your home. There are many types and different colors of mold but what should you do if you encounter black mold?

"First step is to contain the area off, if it's a small patch of mold," said King Service Manager, Rich Griner. "If it's a larger area try to contain the room off and try not to put any air movement across the mold."

Griner said after the area is contained, the best thing to do is call a certified mold remediation company.
