The very thought of mold leaves homeowners worried about the state of their home and whether or not their health is at risk. Recognizing potential mold problems early on can prevent mold spores from growing into colonies, particularly when exposed to water. Our mold testing will determine if there’s mold within the building, inside walls, and other areas. Here’s what to look for to determine if you need mold testing.
Testing for Mold
Mold thrives in dark, moist areas. If you notice water damage due to flooding or a leaky appliance, you may have an existing mold problem. Moisture may also be hidden in the walls of your home due to leaking pipes or plumbing fixtures. If hidden water leaks are left untreated, mold growth is inevitable.
Mold odors typically smell similar to mildew. It gives off gasses that have a noticeable and distinctive odor. Although you may be tempted to temporarily cover up the musty odor, it’s important to find the mold and remove it in order to protect your home and health.
Moldy HVAC System
Condensation can build up on any of your HVAC’s components. If this occurs, do not turn on the system or attempt to clean it, because mold has a high possibility of becoming airborne. Instead, contact Legend Disaster Cleanup for professional mold testing.
If you’ve discovered mold in your home or business, it’s important to have a professional remediate the problem so your health and belongings don’t suffer.
