Working on a Mold Remediation Project

Last weekend I found something disturbing in my house: black mold.   I had never noticed it before, but after the high humidity and moisture that we had this year, it really should have come as no surprise.  It was in a corner of the basement that I never looked at, so I am sure that it went unnoticed for months.

But now that I have found it, I need to do something about it.  Thankfully I have some experience with mold remediation thanks to a summer job that I had years ago.  I am no expert by any means, but I know how to handle it, so I am going to try to deal with it on my own.

It will be my weekend project.

Before I get started, I am heading down to the local hardware store to get the necessary supplies to get the job done.  I am keenly aware that I need gear that ensures that I don’t breathe in any mold spores as well as some kind of solution to seal the mold into the drywall.  I’m sure that I am forgetting something, so I am hoping that the employees down at the store will be some help.

Hopefully I will be able to clean up the mold over the course of the weekend.  I’ll feel a lot better when it is done.
