Signs of Mold Growth

4/21/2016 (Permalink)

Mold can be disgusting to look at and can cause health effects.  So we will try to help you by covering some of the signs of mold growing inside your home.

One sign of mold is smell. A lot of times this is the first thing someone will notice. If you consistently smell something (typically a musty odor) in the same area, you may have some mold growth there.....even if you don't see it!

Obviously if you see mold growth you know you have it. For instance, if you are in the shower or the tub and you spot something that black, green, gray, slimy, powdery, etc.  Unfortunately, not all molds are as easy to detect as it is in the shower, damp places like a cellar or basement could very easily be home to mold as well.

It is also important to know your home’s history. If you had any water damage or leaking that wasn’t professionally taken care there could be a problem. Knowing how old you home is would be helpful. Do you live in a particularly humid area? Knowing these things could help you identify if mold has a possibility of being present.

If you do happen to stumble across mold, or if you don’t, but have a hunch that it’s there, please do not hesitate to give SERVPRO a call.
