Phoenix Home Inspections for Hidden Mold Growth
A slew of issues can surface when you have mold in your Phoenix home, especially the attic. Home owners don’t typically inspect their attics for mold growth, which leaves the mold lots of opportunities to thrive and multiply, ready to spread in other areas of the home. When the mold growth has become out of control, you’ll need to find a professional home remediation company, like SERVPRO of Phoenix. A mold expert will come out, test and discuss what your options are.
When is Remediation Needed for Mold in Your Home?
Your home can easily accumulate mold when you have a hidden water leak somewhere. Hidden water leaks are typically found behind a wall. Come the monsoon storms, hidden water leaks can also be found in your roof. The attic does not get regular human traffic, in fact, in some households, it’s only visited once a year. So finding mold growth in your attic is not all that uncommon. In order to determine if your mold growth requires remediation, you should have a remediation specialist come out to test.
SERVPRO of Phoenix, has professional mold experts that will come out, test for mold, and then consult you on what all of your options are. If remediation is what you chose to move forward with, based on the recommendations, our technicians will walk you through every step of the process with strong communication and care for your home.
If the mold expert comes out and found a lot of mold in multiple areas, then remediation is probably necessary. Mold growth can damage your home in a multitude of ways which include the structural elements. Then you also have, and want to eliminate, the odor of mold in your home which lingers throughout and seemingly impossible to get rid of.
Could Your Home Have Mold Growing Somewhere?
There are 12 common molds found in households, but all of them cause damage, which starts with the surface its attached to. It also affects things like the ceilings, walls, framing, and insulation. If your home recently had a water leak that you are aware of, and you begin to smell musty odor, you probably have mold growth and should carefully look around for it. Even if you don’t see it, but you suspect its there, a mold specialist can come out and test and if it exists, will find it. When you call a mold expert as soon as you think you have mold, you are saving your home from any further damage.
So there are no water leaks in your home… that you are aware of, at least. There are more ways mold will take advantage of to exist. Insulation that has been improperly installed or is insufficient in its functionality becomes a prime environment for mold to thrive. An inadequate ventilation system within areas of your home will also provide areas where mold is likely to inhabit. Anywhere in the home that is associated with the plumbing system is also a very common place for mold growth.
