You try to keep your home in the best shape possible. But with all the cleaning you do, there are some things that are harder to control. One of those things is mold growth. If you want to be on the lookout for mold, we’ve compiled these signs of residential mold problems. If you notice these signs, you’ll want to call the mold remediation experts at Ram Restoration. We’ll come to your space, perform a mold remediation, and offer tips on how to prevent mold growth in the future.
One of the most telltale signs of mold growing in your space is a musty smell. The musty smell may also be prevalent in areas with a high amount of water present, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. But it’s also important to check on other areas of your home you don’t spend a lot of time in to check for musty smells and mold growth, like attics and crawl spaces. If you notice an unexpected musty smell, you’ll want to contact a mold remediation expert to take care of it.
Warped Building Materials
Is the paint or wallpaper on your walls starting to bubble, crack, peel, or look warped? That’s a sign that mold is growing in your walls. When you call Ram Restoration, we have specialized equipment that, depending on your situation, can minimize the need for a tear out to treat the mold.
Stains That Grow
Have you recently discovered a new, dark colored stain in your home? If you notice the stain starting to grow, it’s a sign you have mold in your space. Dirt and grime stains typically don’t expand, so if you do notice a dark colored stain, you’ll want to have a mold remediation expert to help. We can also perform mold testing by a third party lab to find out the type of mold you have in your home.
Allergy Symptoms Develop
Have you recently developed allergy symptoms out of nowhere? That may be a sign that mold is growing in your home. If you unexpectedly have a runny nose, sore throat, and coughing and wheezing and aren’t sure why you’re experiencing those symptoms, it could mean that mold is growing somewhere in your home.
You’ve Recently Had a Flood
Anytime excess moisture enters your space, it’s a sign that mold growth is right around the corner. Some water damage restoration will only treat the water damage resulting from a flood but won’t perform a mold remediation. But at Ram Restoration, we make sure to perform both. That way, mold doesn’t grow from a flood or water damage on your property.
