blog post image

Mold growth is on the rise in homes across America. More and more homeowners are
discovering that their American dream is turning into a big nightmare. One day, everything
seems to be fine. The next day, they discover a house plagued by mold and/or mildew.
Unfortunately, this discovery often occurs far too late to avoid costly repairs. This is why mold
removal is essential at the first sign of mold growth in the home.

Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell if your home will need a mold cleanup. However, there are
some symptoms to look out for:

Common Signs of Mold or Mildew Growth in the Home

  1. Poor indoor air quality causing breathing and respiratory problems.
  2. High humidity from outdoor climate or an improperly functioning humidifier.
  3. A wet basement caused by leaking pipes or some other kind of basement flooding.
  4. A leak in the roof or ceiling.
  5. Musty odors in some part of the house.
  6. Discolored walls or rotted wood.

If you are experiencing any of these issues in your home, there is a good chance you may have
mold growth. If you allow it to continue, it could jeopardize your health and put your largest
investment at risk. At this point, it's important to tackle this issue head on.

Get Professional Help

The first step is to have your home checked by a licensed mold remediation specialist. The
mold remediator will do a thorough inspection of your house to determine if you have a mold
growth problem. They will ask about the background of the home-what leaks or flooding
may have occurred. They will also test the air quality and do a full assessment of the house
to determine the extent of the problem and what kind of mold removal and cleanup strategies
will be necessary to fix it. When your health and home are on the line, it is best to deal with an
experienced professional to get to the root of the mold problem and get you back to living in a
healthy environment.
