If You Have Water Damage--Mold is Not Far Behind

8/26/2020 (Permalink)

If you've had any water damage or even excess moisture in your home, there is a real possibility that you also have hidden mold in your property.

Assessing mold growth isn’t easy. But if you think there’s a stale smell in your home, or if you or a family member keep suffering from respiratory and breathing problems, then those are some of the signs that you might have a mold problem. Here are a few steps you can take on how to resolve the issue.

Learn More About Moisture

How does moisture result in mold growth? Knowing how moisture affects the structural integrity of your property will help you get a better understanding of just how problematic moisture is. And why you’ll need to put in measures to keep it out of your home.

Document Everything

If you see mold anywhere, document the problem. Take photos, write down descriptions, dates, and when you can, take videos of the affected sites. These will all make it easier for mold remediation experts to assess the condition of your home. With the documentation, they can come up with a remediation plan in the quickest way possible. If you’re a commercial property owner you’ll also need the documentation to manage the liability for your facility.

Know the Extent of the Issue

How much of your property is contaminated with the mold? How bad is the problem? The extent of the contamination will determine the mold removal measures to be undertaken. The goal is to remove all the mold. That’s where pros come in.
