Trust Trained SERVPRO Techs to Remediate Your Mold Damaged Property
It's easiest to control and repair mold damage in its early stages, but many homeowners aren't sure of what signs to look for. Left to spread, mold can affect the health of humans and animals, create odors that are very difficult to get rid of, and cause damage to your home's structure, flooring, and possessions.
Though the weather in town is typically warm and on the dry side, it's not uncommon for homeowners to encounter mold damage in Scottsdale. If you suspect that your home is in need of mold remediation, it's important to contact a skilled team, such as SERVPRO so that the problem can be remediated efficiently.
Remediate Your Mold Damaged Property
Here are three telltale signs that your home may have mold damage:
- Persistent moldy (musty) odors. Mold can often be smelled before it is seen, so don't ignore any lingering odors that persist in your home. Contacting our experts at SERVPRO for an inspection when you first smell mold can help prevent the problem from getting worse. Remember, this is like a smoke alarm, warning you of impending problems.
- Increased humidity and condensation. Mold thrives in humid, wet conditions, and if your home's humidity has noticeably increased the risk of mold damage becomes greater. The higher humidity and condensation in your home could be the result of a roof in need of repair, faulty HVAC system, or your home's proximity to a nearby lake. The RH, relative humidity, in your house can be adjusted and stabilized with the use of one or two dehumidifiers.
- Leaking water. Water leaks from burst pipes, cracked exterior walls, and damaged roofs are notorious for leading to mold infestation. Leaks can go undetected for months or longer, and combined with a mold infestation, can weaken the framing, resulting in severe structural damage.
Mold damage is a serious matter, but you can trust the professionals at SERVPRO of Scottsdale to get your home back in top shape. "Like it never even happened."
