Excessive amounts of mold and certain types of mold may present health concerns. It is essential for the health of you and your family, as well as the protection of your property, to address the issue and arrange for professionals to conduct mold removal and mold remediation as soon as the presence of mold is identified.
Water damages can cause mold growth in your home or business, therefore it is important to have your water damage taken care of promptly and professionally. If you have suffered a recent water damage loss or suspect mold growth in your property, do not hesitate to give us a call.
Mold growth occurs naturally, but when it begins to grow inside your home or business it is often the result of a water leak, high humidity, or recent water damage. Because mold requires moisture to grow, it can be one of the first indications that there may also be water damage occurring in your property.
Signs of the presence of excessive mold include:
The presence of visible mold.
Strong, musty odors.
Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold growth.
If you see or suspect mold growth in your property, you should have a professional check for mold growth and any signs of water damage. If mold is detected, we can advise you about what’s causing it and create a plan for the safe and thorough removal of the mold.
