Evaluating the Threat of Mold Damage on Your Montgomery Home
Three Identifying Conditions of Mold Damage in Your Home
The particular risk presented by mold damage in a Montgomery home can vary on many factors. Our inspectors are specially trained to identify and summarize specific characteristics of a mold infestation upon seeing and evaluating it with specialized tools and technology, but there are also a few more visible elements of the mold that can help us to determine how serious the problem is. While you should always call SERVPRO for mold in your home, at least to be sure that the problem is not more widespread in another area, these identifying conditions can help you to evaluate the severity of your problem.
Some mold damage in Montgomery appears old, wilted, and dead. While this may merely indicate what type of mold it is, it can also help us to determine if we are dealing with a new or old mold problem. Newer patches of growth are typically moist and appear more vibrant than older ones, although this can vary by species. If you believe the mold to be dead, still call us so that we can verify and safely remove it, but be sure to let us know about its condition.
Some mold colors can be critical in evaluating the threat to your home. White mold usually indicates a very new patch of growth and can either be a warning sign of a more extensive and spreading problem, or an easy fix for our mold remediation techniques. Black mold can be hazardous and cause health effects with prolonged exposure. If you find black mold in your home, stay far away from it until we can arrive and quarantine the fungus.
A dry patch of mold growth does not last for long in the typical home. One of SERVPRO's first approaches to killing mold is to deny it water. If its source of moisture has already dried up, be sure to let us know, as we can capitalize on this and shorten restoration times.
