Signs That Your Home Needs Mold Testing
Warning Signs That Mold May Be Inside Your Home
While some people know their home has mold simply because they can see it along the walls or behind sinks, others aren't so sure because there's no visible sight of an infestation. Whether you're suspicious of your home's condition, or you're buying a new home and want to cover all of your bases, mold testing may be a smart move.
Mold testing in Idaho Falls is necessary if you even suspect that your house has mold problems. Not only is it a potential threat to the health of your family members and pets, but mold can also destroy your home's structure and its contents. Here are some ways to know that your home should be mold tested.
1. You're suddenly experiencing congestion or allergy symptoms. Allergies often correlate with the season, but if you find that you or your family members get headaches, a scratchy throat, or runny nose inside of your home more than you do outside of it, mold may be the culprit.
2. You can smell a definite musty or moldy odor. These smells are indicative of mold presence, even if you don't see any mold around your home. If this is the case, it's best to call SERVPRO for mold testing.
3. The humidity inside of your home has increased in the past few weeks or months. Indoor humidity can increase for some reasons, and the combination of humidity and dark areas helps mold thrive. Excess moisture during the warmer months of the year is a particular concern and calls for professional mold testing.
4. You see something in a small spot that may be mold, but you're unsure. If you think you've caught sight of mold in your home, but you aren't 100 percent certain because of its location or the amount present, call the experts at SERVPRO to conduct a test.
