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.
