Chances are if you’ve lived in any home you’ve seen some type of mold. Mold grows in dark, moist areas. It’s usually easily cleaned from a bathtub or sink with the swipe of a sponge, but what if things get more serious? If your home is experiencing a major mold infestation, then you need the help of a mold removal specialist. Early mold remediation can save you thousands of dollars in repairs. If mold keeps popping up in areas even after repeated cleanings, or you can smell mold but can’t see it, you need professional help. Read on for some telltale signs it’s time to call a mold remediation service.
You Know It’s There, You Just Can’t Find It
Mold gives off a musty smell that makes a house feel dank. The mold smell lingers even after deep cleaning. You may even notice a spike in your family members’ allergies caused by mold. This is likely an indication of a mold infestation in air vents or behind walls. Mold could also be growing underneath carpets or wood floors. Even though you can’t see the mold, that doesn’t mean it’s not a big deal. In fact, it could be a bigger deal because it could be eating through places that maintain the structural integrity of your home.
It Keeps Coming Back
If mold keeps growing back despite your best efforts, then the problem is likely more than skin deep. Repeated mold patches in the same area likely mean that it’s already growing underneath the wall or counter where you see it. A mold remediation professional will be able to spot and treat those mold patches that keep popping up.
Large Mold Growth
Sometimes homeowners walk into a basement or an attic and discover a large patch of mold that is more than they can handle. It’s very common for large mold infestations to expand in places that people don’t often go – like basements. They can also be discovered after ripping up carpets or taking apart cabinets. Professional mold removal services can make sure that all the mold is eradicated so that it doesn’t keep spreading.
