Do you suspect that you might have mold within your home? Mold can cause serious damage to your home and be dangerous. To help you determine if you’re in need of mold removal, here are the top signs to look for.
- Odor – Mold puts off a musty odor, especially indoors. If you start smelling a musty odor in areas that typically generate a lot of moisture such as kitchens, bathrooms, or exit doors, consider having a professional inspect your home for mold.
- Present Water – If you have any sort of standing water or water stains, have your home inspected for mold removal immediately. Mold thrives in dark and high moisture areas. Even if water is drained or cleared up, moisture could still be present in hidden areas.
- Allergies – Did you know mold can cause a physical reaction? This reaction can be similar to allergy reactions. If you or anyone in your household is experiencing allergy symptoms (especially if it’s not allergy season) contact a professional today for mold removal.
- Visible Mold or Discoloration – If you can visibly see mold or discoloration on your walls or ceiling, call a professional for mold removal immediately. Mold can be any of the following colors, black (most common), white, gray, and sometimes brown. The texture of mold can be slimy, dusty, or fuzzy.
