Mold Remediation What are the Most Important Questions You Should Ask if You Suspect Mold Damage in Your Highland Park Home It is important to not attempt to clean mold damage on your own as you can spread the damage to unaffected areas of your home.

Rely on SERVPRO for Safe and Thorough Mold Remediation

Discovering mold damage in your home can be a disaster waiting to happen. If you do not pay attention, it can spread quickly and may cause health effects as well. Seeking professional help as soon as you can, is the first step toward safe restoration.

If you suspect mold growth in your Highland Park home, make sure that you are not neglecting the early signs.

Can you see mold growth visibly? 

If you answer ‘yes’ to this question, then seek professional help immediately. SERVPRO technicians can help you prevent the mold from spreading to the unaffected areas of your home. Make sure that you avoid the temptation of cleaning the damage by yourself. Trying to remedy the damage on your own can spread the damage to other areas of your home before you know it.

Do you smell a strong musty odor?

If you smell a strong, musty odor in your home, it might indicate mold damage. Not all mold is visible, and if the growth is behind the drywall or in difficult to reach places, the odor is a dead giveaway for mold growth. If your bathroom, crawlspace, basement or attic smells damp and musty, make sure you are calling in the professionals.

Did you have a history of mold problems in your home?

If you have a history of mold problems in your house, you must be extra cautious. Call SERVPRO professionals if you suspect of a recurrence as soon as you can. It is crucial for a fast and safe restoration if the professionals can get to work as soon as possible.

Do you have water damage on your property?

Water damage is perhaps one of the most significant contributors that can result in extensive mold damage. The excess moisture due to leaky pipes, fixtures or blocked up drains is very conducive for spores to germinate.

Tackling mold damage early on is the key to a safe and efficient restoration. If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, it is time to act and act fast.
