Montana Mold Services did a mold remediation job at a property listed for sale in Sheridan, Wyoming this week. By regulation, mold must be removed from properties listed for sale. In this case, mold had accumulated in the wood underneath a tub, and had spread to adjoining walls and flooring. The mold problem was serious enough, that professionals had to be called in.
In some cases, mold can be dealt with by using strong chemicals and bleach, but this wasn’t one of them. Mold attaches itself to porous surfaces like wood and drywall, and then the infected material have to be completely removed. The moldy debris needs to be disposed of according to state and federal guidelines.
Mold is often caused by leaking pipes, or in this case, the way the tub was designed, moisture from the tub was leaking down into the wood surrounding the tub. The leak has to be dealt with and the area completely dried out, or the mold problem will likely return. Wherever there is moisture in an enclosed space, mold thrives.
