Connecticut Department of Public Health, CT DPH, has put out a four page booklet for“Mold Guidance for Real Estate, Banking, And Insurance Communities”. This guide provides useful information on what to do if you suspect mold in your home. It covers four general scenarios:

  • Houses with no known problems
  • Houses with suspected problems
  • Houses with known problems
  • Houses that have had mold abatement performed

Mold needs water and food to grow, so the first thing to do is to stop the source of water, the second is to remove damaged organic material such as wet sheetrock and other porous wet materials. Third is to clean up the clutter and non moldy items and finally air out and dry out the space.

The CT DPH recommends that you hire a third party post abatement party to verify that the contractor has performed the abatement job correctly. To find more information and links go to CT DPH website
