When is Mold Remediation Required?

As a homeowner, it’s essential to know that mold is more of a common occurrence than you may think. Sometimes you may even have mold growth and not be aware until it starts affecting your health. It produces spores that can spread effortlessly throughout the air for mold to grow.

Not only can mold be an irritant and have allergies, but it can also put you at risk for respiratory problems. So when is mold remediation required?

As you continue to read, you’ll learn about the 5 signs that will let you know when mold remediation is required. In addition, we’ll discuss the mold remediation process and what happens if you don’t take care of the problem. 

When is Mold Remediation Required?

Signs You Need a Mold Remediation Service

As mold grows in warm and humid climates, a homeowner must inspect your home regularly if you suspect you have a mold issue. By locating mold early on, you can prevent health risks from affecting you and other family members.

We know that realizing you have a mold problem may seem difficult to pinpoint. You should contact our mold remediation experts if you notice these 5 signs in your home:

1. Dark-Colored Areas

When in your home and you spot any dark-colored areas, this is an immediate red flag you could be dealing with mold. When mold goes unchecked for long periods, this leads to discoloration in your carpet or walls.

Little do homeowners know, the color doesn’t always need to be black for it to be mold. Some mold growth is white, yellow, or green. If you notice any discolored areas in your home, it could be mold, and you’ll need to schedule mold remediation

2. Water Damage

Since mold thrives in humid areas, if you have a water leak, this is one of the significant opportunities for mold to grow and cause damage. If you encounter a water leak, you’ll want to contact our team to schedule a water damage restoration.

However, if you notice water leaks have made their way into your walls and other hard-to-reach areas, you’ll want to schedule our mold remediation service for an inspection and to remove the mold right in its tracks. 

3. Condensation

When warm moisture reaches a cold surface, this can cause your surface to cool down at a fast pace and cause condensation. When condensation forms, you’ll begin to notice this on your walls, windows, or even in your ventilation. When occurring regularly, this will eventually cause mold growth within your home.

One way to fight against mold growth in your home is to regulate the temperature inside. It also wouldn’t be a terrible idea to purchase a humidifier in your bathrooms or other humid areas of your home. If you notice mold growth in your air ducts, you’ll want to call our team at Exit Mold immediately to schedule mold remediation

4. Mold Odor

Sometimes, mold can give off a strong odor of mildew or a musty smell. You’ll want to note when and where you saw the odor if you notice any strange smells. If you have a musty smell, you can guarantee you’re dealing with a mold problem if you see a musty smell.

Mold odors are common in areas such as behind curtains, under carpets, in walls if you have insulation, and in your ceiling. By scheduling our mold remediation service, we use proper techniques and tools and are well-trained to locate mold growth. 

5. Allergic Reactions

If you’re a person who has a sensitive or weak immune system, you’ll be more sensitive to mold than others. If you’re dealing with a mold problem, you’ll notice watery eyes, runny nose, coughing, and sneezing.

 If you start to notice any of these symptoms in you or your family members, there’s a chance you could be dealing with a mold infestation. Some homeowners can immediately suspect a problem when they’re away from their homes if it’s the only location where they deal with symptoms.
