When You Should Contact a Mold Removal Specialist

Mold growing in your home is never a welcome sight, but it can happen often. When mold is growing in your space, hiring a mold removal specialist is the best way to ensure your home is cleaned thoroughly. Mold growth can decrease the value of your home, cause damage that requires expensive repairs, and increase the risk of serious illness. Long-term mold exposure can be especially damaging to the lungs, eyes, and other areas. The health risks alone highlight the importance of mitigating mold as soon as you can. 

But when should you call? Whether mold growth is visible or you are simply concerned mold may be growing in your home, here is when you should contact a mold removal team. 

Recent Water Damage to Your Home

Mold commonly grows where water and high humidity exist. If you recently had water damage to your home, the likelihood of mold growth increases. Even if you cleaned up the damage thoroughly, calling in a mold removal specialist to check for damage is a good idea. Trained and experienced teams can help mitigate mold growth after water damage.

You Can See or Smell Mold Growing

By the time you can see or smell mold, the growth has likely already taken hold. Recognizing these sensory signs means it is time to call a mold removal specialist as soon as possible. From there, the specialist can perform an analysis of the area and recommend a mitigation plan. If your home has high humidity, a trained specialist can also suggest ways to prevent mold growth. Chances are, if you do have mold in your home, you will need to move quickly to prevent further growth. Having a mold removal specialist on-site can help expedite the process and reduce your exposure to harmful mold. 

Mold Growth Has Happened in Your Home Before

If you have experienced previous mold growth in your home, you may be at a higher risk for it to return. Mold is a persistent organism and will keep growing if not adequately removed, and bringing in a mold removal specialist can ensure that prior growth is completely gone. Removing mold correctly from the start will reduce your likelihood of mold returning to your home.
