Getting Rid of Mold Behind Wallpaper
Usually people who have mold behind wallpaper may not suspect that it is there. The most common place for mold to grow is behind the wallpaper that is in bathroom. As you can imagine, this is where there is a lot of moisture present from daily showering, etc. Therefore, it is a breeding ground for mold because the glue also attracts organic materials, such as dust, which is the favorite food combination for mold.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), inexperienced people who have attempted to remove mold from behind wallpaper usually exacerbate the problem by releasing a “massive” number of spores when the wallpaper is taken down. They also state that just by killing mold, and not getting rid of it, it can still cause serious health problems to some people. Therefore, when dealing with mold behind wallpaper, what you should know is that it is best to contact an expert mold remediation company, SERVPRO of South Albany County. This will ensure that the problem will be effectively resolved and will provide a safe environment for you and your family.
