Do you have mold at your house?

Mold inside the cabinet When you notice signs of mold growth in your home, call on our experienced professionals to take care of it.

Mold growth can be a big concern for homeowners. Although you may notice it right away, it occasionally requires a little more investigating. When checking for mold, there are plenty of common places it could be hidden, but sometimes mold may not be as easy to spot. 

Mold can grow almost anywhere if it has enough moisture and food. Moisture is key to fungal growth, so anywhere that is humid is a prime location for the spores to settle and grow. Mold also needs a food source – most organic materials work. 

A small leak under your sink can drip for days, causing moisture to build up and leading to mold growth that only continues to worsen each day. Or mold could be lingering in the dark corners of your basement without your knowledge. 

Mold has the ability to hide deep inside the surfaces of your home, only to appear after growth has gotten much worse. While each case of mold development is unique and dependent on the environment, there are some warning signs you can watch out for when checking your home for growth. 

Knowing the signs of growth makes it easier to detect mold that you might not be able to immediately identify, preventing this silent nuisance from growing any worse:
