Little Hints You Should Call A Mold Remediation Service

Posted on: 17 January 2022


Most people think of mold remediation as being for those who have entire walls covered in mold or full basements with an obvious mold problem. Indeed, if you have these issues, you need to call a mold remediation service ASAP. However, mold remediation services can handle smaller and more moderate mold problems, too. So, what are the signs you have a mold problem that you need to address? 

Musty Odors

If you've ever smelled a bathing suit that took too long to dry or a towel that got folded up when wet, then you are familiar with the smell of must. If you smell this odor around your home, then there may be some mold growth in hidden places, such as inside your walls. A mold remediation team should come locate and remove the mold.

Sometimes, people become "nose blind" to the smell of mold if it has been in their home for a while. As such, you may not notice musty odors in your home, but guests may comment on them when they visit. If your guests think your home smells moldy or musty, believe them, and call the mold remediation company.

Odd Symptoms

If you find yourself feeling nauseous, congested, or fatigued, it is a good idea to see a doctor. They'll likely want to rule out possibilities such as the flu and other infections. If they can't find a good medical reason for your symptoms, there's a chance they're being caused by mold. Some people are extremely allergic to mold, but plenty of others are only sensitive to it. You deserve to live in a healthy, mold-free space, so don't hesitate to have a mold remediation team come take care of the problem.

Dark or Light Spots

Keep an eye on the painted walls and ceilings in your home. If they develop any darker or lighter spots, you may initially assume this is a defect in the paint. But if you touch the spots, you might find that they are thin, powdery spots of mold. If they are growing on the wall, that probably means there's more mold and moisture inside your walls. This should definitely be handled by a professional.

If your walls have discolored spots, you're feeling not quite right, or your home has a strange odor, mold could be to blame. Luckily, mold remediation services have convenient ways to locate the mold and get rid of it for good.
