Do I Have Mold in My Home?
Homeowners generally don’t want mold in their home, which is why they often try to have mold growth treated. But many homeowners are not sure if they have mold at all. In some cases it can be tricky, but there a few indicators that should help you determine if you have mold.
- You can see it. The most obvious sign you have mold is you can physically see it. If you do, you should contact your local mold remediation company and ask for their services.
- There is a strong, musty odor. Sometimes you cannot see mold, but there’s a strong, musty smell. While it’s not a guarantee you have mold growth, it is a strong indicator. You should call an inspector to test your home and make that determination.
- You recently had water damage. Moisture is one of the key ingredients necessary for mold spores to begin growing. If you recently had water damage, it’s possible for mold to grow, especially if the affected areas were not properly treated. If you suspect you might have mold and recently had water damage, contact a mold inspector.
Mold can grow in many places, even in places you cannot see. While it’s sometimes difficult to make the determination on your own, you can call SERVPRO of Burke County for help!
