Unfortunately, while painting over mold seems like a cheap, easy option, it won’t actually deal with the problem. The mold will just continue to grow behind the paint (and probably eat it), causing a bigger mold problem than you initially had. When you have a visible mold problem, it’s best to create a solid roadmap of the issue to make sure you’re treating your home properly. That way, you make sure the air quality in your home is clean, and your body has the ability to heal. Instead of the pain, hire a mold inspector to figure out the scope of the problem and then find a remediation company to remove the mold and its byproducts.
