Free Info Helps Sellers Eliminate Ghastly Mold


Red alert! The sellers have an unsightly mold problem. Give them the dirt on whether they can eliminate it themselves or need to hire a pro. Share the free November “Get Rid of Mold: DIY or Hire a Pro?” article from the November “Indoor Air Quality: VOCs & Mold” theme now available at the REALTOR® Content Resource. Here’s some of the insight:

Everyday solutions. If you can see it, you probably can get rid of it with a little elbow grease, soap, and water. More stubborn forms usually succumb to a solution of 1:9 bleach-to-water.

Problem mold. If you find spores growing on drywall, studs, and subflooring—especially if the area exceeds 10 square feet—you’ve got a bona fide mold problem. Don’t bother buying a hardware store petri-dish kit, which claims to help identify airborne mold: It doesn’t. Your best bet is an independent consultant with credentials. With new enhancements to the REALTOR® Content Resource, you can now share the “Indoor Air Quality: VOCs & Mold” articles with consumers via Facebook, Twitter, and email directly from the REALTOR® Content Resource. You can also search more easily for content by themes (formerly “Collections”) or keywords.
