How Do You Know If You Have Mold Growing in Your Home?
While there are situations where you can actually see mold growth in your home, additional signs that there is mold in your home include:
-Odors that are musty and strong.
-Ongoing high humidity within your home.
-Visible accumulations of moisture.
What Causes Mold to Grow in Your Home?
Mold is caused by an accumulation of moisture. When undetected or not taken care of, the reason that mold growth can be so extensive is because mold will continue to grow and spread as long as it has access to a food source and water.
Can I Get Rid of Mold On My Own?
Depending upon the area and amount of mold damage in your home or business you may be able to clean and treat this yourself. Small areas of mold (less than 25 square feet) generally don’t require professional remediation services.
If you have a large area of mold damage or it is in multiple areas of your home, we do not recommend this course of action:
-Because mold can cause potential health problems, our mold technicians have been through extensive training, which gives them the knowledge necessary to safely remove mold without putting their or anyone else’s health at risk.
-Mold growth is not always visible. Mold can grow in areas you can’t see, which is why our technicians are certified to use thermography and infrared equipment to identify the full extent of a mold problem.
-Because mold is caused by moisture accumulation, if the mold is removed but the cause isn’t addressed, the mold will return. We will not only remove the mold, but also end the source of the problem.
-If mold growth is severe, it can damage the areas where it has grown and spread. Because we are a full-service restoration company, we can efficiently restore any damaged areas to their previous condition.
Instead of trying to get rid of mold on your own, if you see mold in your home, or any of the previously addressed signs of growth are present, give Northern Restoration Services a call. While it may be tempting to start drying the mold with a fan before we arrive, this will actually cause the mold to spread even more.
When we arrive at your home, our skilled technicians will assess the extent of your mold problem through the use of infrared and thermography equipment. Once the extent of the damage has been assessed, and the type of mold growth has been identified, we will be able to create a comprehensive mold removal and restoration plan.
Depending on the type of damage, our process can include damage removal, mold containment and carpet cleaning, and in severe cases, any necessary demolition and reconstruction. And because our plan is comprehensive, we will also take care of the problem that led to the mold growth in your home.
