How to Identify Mold in Your Home or Office

Not sure if you have a mold problem?

Here are some common signs of mold growth and exposure:

  • Inexplicable Health Issues – Mold exposure can cause a variety of health issues and symptoms, such as heightened allergy symptoms, headaches, and respiratory problems.
  • Strange or Foul Odor – If your property smells musty, hidden mold may be growing.

  • Water – Water stains or spots are both common causes of mold growth.

Understanding Mold Growth

Mold spores are microscopic. Even in a healthy environment, a certain threshold of spores exists. If an overgrowth or outbreak of mold in your home or office exists, it is due to conditions that allow the mold spores to colonize.

It is crucial to control the conditions that allow mold to thrive—this is the key to preventing mold issues.

How to Remove Mold: What Is Mold Remediation?

In essence, mold remediation is a very thorough mold removal process. It involves mold testing, mold removal, air filtration, and home restoration. The goal is to thoroughly treat the mold problem and prevent it from coming back.

For instance, when it comes to solving mold issues, it is important to solve any water or moisture issues simultaneously. Without the complete drying of a high-moisture area or leak, effective remediation is not possible.

Our water removal service teams and mold specialists work together to ensure all angles of your mold problem are taken care of.
