Possible Signs of Mold in Your Residential Home
If you think you have mold in your home the most important thing is to not panic. There are many steps you can take to fix your possible mold issue, such as calling a specialist to come and inspect. SERVPRO of Edmonds performs mold cleaning based off of an Industrial Hygienist’s recommendations.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Do you visibly see mold spores? If you see dark fuzzy spots growing on porous surfaces you could be looking at visible mold growth.
Do you notice a musty or damp smell? Some mold species cause noticeable odors. If you detect an uncommon odor it could be because of a mold issue.
Did you experience a water leak in your home? Places in your home with elevated moisture are more prone to growing mold. If you have had a past leak examine those areas carefully. You may even need a leak detection specialist.
Have you consulted a professional? An Industrial Hygienist (certified mold specialist) will help determine whether you are facing a mold issue or something entirely different. They will provide you with appropriate recommendations.
