I have small spots of mold coming through Sheetrock inside spare bedroom. Should I attempt to handle it myself or get a pro?

You most likely have some sort of water leak or high humidity levels in your home.  What ever you can see is 10 times that behind the wall. 

Get a fee estimate and pro opinion before you decide what is best for you and your family.
