Our team at DTS Restorative Services wants to help you take the best possible care of your home, and one of the ways we do that is by providing top-notch mold removal services. In our experience, we have worked with countless homeowners who were shocked by how much a mold infestation had grown and spread before they became aware of the problem, and we want to help you avoid a similar situation. In this article, we’ll go over three early signs that you may need mold removal services in order to help you get this problem taken care of as soon as possible.
- Sudden or Ongoing Moisture Problems- One indicator that you may need mold removal is having ongoing moisture problems in your home. Mold spores need dark, humid conditions in order to reproduce and thrive, so if any area of your home provides these conditions, then you should call our team to get started with mold testing at the very least. Similarly, if your home has suffered sudden water damage from a flood, burst pipe, etc., then you should get it inspected for mold right away.
- Musty Odors- Another sign that you may need mold removal services is a persistent musty odor around your home, or parts of it. Mold produces a noticeable musty smell as it spawns new spores, so any such smells are worth looking into in detail. However, there are other things that can cause your home to develop this kind of smell, so it’s best to look at other factors, too, in order to determine whether you really have a mold problem.
- Health Symptoms- A third indicator that you may need mold removal services can be found in the respiratory health of those who live in your home. Breathing in mold spores has been known to cause complaints such as coughing, sneezing, drippy sinuses, and more, so if you can’t seem to shake these symptoms for any length of time, the most likely culprit is mold.
