Can My Items Be Cleaned After Exposure to Mold?

2/14/2024 (Permalink)

Mold can be invasive, however when treated right certain items can be saved after exposure to mold. Some specific items that can be saved from mold with the right treatment include:

  • Books, papers, and documents: Mold can cause discoloration and disintegration of paper items, but if treated promptly, they can often be cleaned and restored.

  • Furniture: Wooden furniture, especially antiques, can be particularly susceptible to mold damage, but with proper cleaning, they can often be restored to their original condition.

  • Clothing and textiles: Mold can cause musty odors, staining, and deterioration of fabrics, but with the right treatment, they can often be cleaned and deodorized.

  • Electronics: Mold can cause corrosion of electronic components and cause short circuits, but with proper cleaning, many electronic items can be restored to working condition.

It's important to note that not all items can be saved from mold, and in some cases, it may be more cost-effective to simply replace the item. It's important to take proper safety precautions when handling mold-contaminated items, as mold can pose health hazards if not handled correctly.

With this being said, if you are experiencing a mold situation in your property, give us a call today to have the experts evaluate the items that are at risk and remediate the situation.
