#4: Moving Because of Mold

MoldMoving Companies are hired every day for all kinds of reasons. Mold is one of the projects where we are hired to pack certain rooms or even an entire home so contractors can treat for mold. Mold can be very dangerous to your health especially for young children, people with allergies, asthma or the elderly. Typically you only have to empty a room if there is evidence of mold in the walls, under the carpet or if there is a lot of it present. If you find mold in your home you should treat it right away to stop it from spreading.

In very extreme cases we have to remove everything from the home while the mold remediation work is taking place. A Full Service Moving Company can remove everything and bring it to storage OR move you to a temporary home or apartment while the work is being done. If the Mold is really bad you will want to move out completely.


There are treatments for mold which range from taking care of a small problem in a bathroom with vinegar and water all the way to removing sheet rock and replacing it with new. Catching the problem early and taking action can mean not having to move out of your home while major repairs are being done.

Have you ever had to deal a mold issue? Do you have any cleaning tips or tricks for getting rid of mold?

  1. Wow – had no idea people had to hire folks like you for this type of thing – but makes perfect sense.

    I know many people who’ve had illness-born mold issues. It’s not pretty!

    Thanks for great reminder and back-saving advice, Kim.


  2. This makes perfect sense and is great to know that you will help with this. When it comes to success in life there
    are few things of greater value than the achievement of a good-feeling body. With mold around that might be tough!
    Thank you for the great info! http://www.togrowyoung.com

  3. Thanks for your comments Clyde. We have seen many clients get very sick from mold in their house. People don’t realize how dangerous mold can be.

  4. Being healthy is very important. We had a client hospitalized due to mold and we had to move his things out of his house before he could come home. He knew there was some mold but didn’t realize how dangerous it could be to his health.
    Thanks for the comments Robin.
