Mold Remediation | 3 Signs You May Have Mold
Mold Remediation | Mold contamination is a huge concern for both businesses and residential homes. Mold can cause a lot of issues and health concerns. Unfortunately, mold often goes unnoticed and untreated until it becomes a bigger problem. By waiting, the cost of mold remediation can increase dramatically, not to mention potential hospital bills for breathing issues. There are several warning signs that if noticed should prompt you to seek a professional.
One of the most visual indicators of mold is the appearance of dark spots on interior panels such as the ceiling, floor or walls. These spots indicate that there is some sort of moisture behind the panel and it has been there long enough to cause mold to form.
Another telltale sign that you may have mold is a pungent or musty odor coming from certain areas of your home or business. Along with these odors you may notice a thin layer of mildew forming.
