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.
