Mold is not always visible. Once mold is visible, it has gotten out of control and you must call a mold removal specialist such as Disaster Cleanup Services. Molds and mildews love dark places that have moisture. These places could be inside your walls, attic, basement, or roof. These microorganisms can be very dangerous and could lead to many different illnesses. If you have colonies appearing, it is important that you never remove it yourself. There are licenses that are needed to remove and dispose of mold in a safe way. Mold removal is done using special suits, cleansing agents, and equipment. 

Smells Can Tell You A lot!

Mold has a very distinct smell. If you smell a musty mildew smell, you have it inside your home. 

Visible Growth and Stains

Stains are the easiest way to determine if you have mold growth. If you see water stains or colored stains growing inside your home, call a professional hazardous materials removal company immediately. Mold comes in a variety of colors, including:

  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Black
  • White
  • Gray

All types of mold are hazardous to your health. If you see any type of mold growth, remove your family and call Disaster Cleanup Services. 

Prolonged Allergies

Mold exposure is very similar to allergy symptoms. See your doctor to determine the cause of your allergies. If you seem to have allergies that last all year, with no explanation, it is an indication that you have growth in your home. It can grow and spread rapidly throughout your home.

Indoor Flooding and Leaks

If you have had indoor flooding or leaks, it is possible that you have mold growth. Mold can grow quickly when the conditions are right. Mold loves moisture. If you recently had water damages, call a professional to check your home for mold. If caught early, mold can be removed easily. 

The above list is to help you determine if you have mold growth in your home. If you are unsure, call a mold removal company. They will be able to check your home and remove the mold safely!
