What Can Be Done To Confirm A Mold Damage Problem In Caldwell?

Mold can cause significant damage to your home.

Mold Damage Problem In Your Home

While you may be able to identify several warning signs of mold damage in Caldwell, knowing for sure if and where mold is present can be a much more difficult process. In some cases, the infestation may be evident and apparent even to untrained eyes, but most colonies are far more subtle and difficult to identify. You may have been looking at mold in your home for years and never realized the extent of the problem until recently. SERVPRO can help you to identify whether mold has taken root and where it has spread through our advanced detection tools, but the solution could also be much simpler than that.

Visual identification of mold damage in your Caldwell home can sometimes be difficult or impossible but remains one of the most important methods by which homeowners nationwide find tens of thousands of infestations every year. Most species prefer to live in dark, undisturbed conditions that tend to lie out of sight, making even the most massive colonies difficult at times to spot. However, if you find spots of green or dark discoloration around the home, these may be indicative of a mold problem. Note that staining can come from other issues as well: try to identify other key characteristics as well, such as a fuzzy appearance or atypical moisture levels in the immediate surrounding area.

Should the fungus lie behind a wall, ceiling, or other visual blocks, you may still be able to pick up on other warning signs (most notably foul and musty odors around the house). With these in mind, you can direct SERVPRO professionals to the general location of potential damage where they can use moisture detection and damage analysis models to accurately measure and predict the size and extent of growth across your home.
