Do I Need Mold Inspection Services?

9/17/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is great at hiding in places you would never suspect. Even hidden, it can cause great damage to the property and to the health of those living there. Here are some things you can do to find out whether you need mold inspection services.

Sniff the Air

Mold has an earthy, musty odor. If this is a natural smell of a property, there is probably mold growth somewhere. It's suggested to turn off either the heat or air conditioning and close all doors. After a few hours, go room to room and find which room has the strongest odor. This is most likely the room where the mold growth is most active. 

Water Intrusions

If you’ve had a water leak that caused surfaces to be wet for more than 24 hours, you probably need a mold inspection. This rule is a reminder that you can control mold by keeping moisture under control within a property. If moisture levels reach above 60% on a humidity reader, mold will likely grow.  If surfaces remain wet for more than 1-2 days, the mold growth process will likely begin.
