Mold in homes and businesses stem from moisture and humidity. If any type of water damage has occurred in a property, mold is a threat. Areas that are exposed to moisture, (bathrooms, attics, basements, crawlspaces, etc), have an increased potential to develop mold damage. All mold needs is moisture, humidity, and a food source like wood, drywall, or carpet. In fact, mold can use almost any material as a food source … and it doesn’t take long for mold to start to grow after a moisture problem.
You can have your property professionally tested for mold, but there are indicators that you can look out for. The musty, mildew smell that happens when mold is present is easy to identify. Especially if you smell it in areas that are more likely to see mold. Mold can also be found on the surface of ceilings, walls, floorboards, and other areas. Many times, surface mold can indicate a larger mold problem beneath the surface.
Covering surface mold with paint or trying to clean it off with bleach will not get rid of mold. It has to be cleaned and removed by professionals with the right equipment and tools. In this day of do-it-yourselfers, it may seem tempting to open a YouTube video or research mold removal online, but that isn’t going to do any good.
