Most types of microbial growth, including mold, can be an issue not only to your home, but health issues for you and your family. That is why it is of the utmost importance to have your home inspected and treated by the certified experts at ServiceMaster Restoration by David if you suspect any microbial growth in your home. With recent severe storms and flooding in the greater Nashville area, this is now more important than ever.
What is Mold?
Mold is a fungus that feeds off moisture Mold spores are present everywhere floating in the air. We encounter airborne mold spores every day, and in small amounts, for most people it causes no harm. However, when these spores land on a surface in your home, and when moisture is present, they reproduce rapidly and that is when the problem begins. The mold actively grows and your exposure to this mold can result in health problems. You, your family, and pets can breathe in these spores and develop respiratory illness. It also causes damage and is unsightly in your home.
Signs of Mold in Your Home
- The grout between shower tiles is dark
- A musty smell coming from your HVAC system
- Peeling wallpaper can be a sign of moisture that breeds potential mold growth
- Dark spots on walls or ceilings
- Water damage from a flood in the home
- Rust is an indicator of moisture so where there is rust it is important to look for unusual microbial growth
It is important to look for initial signs of microbial growth to avoid damage to your home’s foundation, drywall, gutters, roofing, home furnishings, and most importantly your home’s HVAC system.
Various types of microbial growth can develop anywhere that maintains an environment of high humidity such as a bathroom, anywhere that has experienced a water leak or a broken pipe, or any place in your home that stays wet on a consistent basis. If we observe moisture problems or that mold may be present in your home, we order an independent third-party mold test by an approved mold assessor. Once the existence is confirmed we can start the process to free your home and contents of potential mold growth
Physical Symptoms of Mold May Be Your Home
- Skin rashes that will not go away
- Sore Throat
- Excessive dry coughing
