If you live in an apartment in Northbrook, IL, and find mold growth in your building, you may not know what to do next. There are several crucial steps that both landlords and tenants can take to make the mold cleanup process easier.

1. Safely Remove Water

Where there is mold, there is often water, and floods or leaks are a common cause of mold growth in apartments. Mold spores tend to grow in damp, dark areas, so removing any water that you can safely remove can help to prevent further mold growth. However, if you are unsure whether or not you can remove the water without risking your health, then it’s best to ask for assistance from professionals.

2. Speak With Your Landlord/Tenants

If you are the tenant in an apartment, you will need to speak with your landlord to inform them about the mold growth. Alternatively, if you are a landlord, you are also responsible for informing your tenants about mold contamination. As the building owners, landlords are primarily responsible for the mold cleanup process and should prioritize the well-being of their tenants.

3. Request the Testing of Affected Areas

In order to understand the safest way to eliminate mold and to clean the surrounding area, it’s often important for the areas affected by mold to be tested. Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, requesting that professionals test the area is generally an important step to take. Once the type of mold has been identified, professionals will be able to give you a better idea of how long the cleanup process will take and if there is also growth elsewhere.

Whether you are a landlord or tenant, finding mold in your building doesn’t have to result in a long mold cleanup process. Many people find it helpful to employ mold removal professionals to ensure that mold is safely eliminated.

I had a pipe leaking in my wall in my laundry area. 1st Choice came and opened up the wall, took my washer, dryer and laundry tub out of the room. After a plumber fixed the pipe, they came and pulled up the carpet and dried out the room. I was very satisfied with that part of my ordeal.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
