Should I Paint Over Mold?

When the mold continues to grow under the paint, it will cause the paint to crack and peel. You will then have to re-paint the spot. This process will continue unless you remove the mold and treat the area. Our team can sort this problem out for you with a few easy steps.
What Makes Mold Grow in My Home?
Mold needs moisture to grow but before it grows it comes into your home as spores. Once the spores get moisture, they start to grow into mold. This is when the mold starts to digest items and in some cases destroys. It is pretty impossible to make sure there are no mold spores in your home but what you can do to help your home is to keep it dry. If you see an area that constantly has water on it such as a leak, try to keep that area dry by fixing the leak.

If you have a laundry room, then this is another room to watch out for mold growth.
