Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Spotting Mold

12/9/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Alexandria is a 24/7 emergency service company that can handle any size disaster. Water damage restoration is a service that we specialize in. Sometimes water damage grows into mold damage. How, you may ask? Well, mold starts to grow when wet building materials stay moist for too long. Mold can grow into walls, upholstery, carpeting, and can also cause damage to the floors and ceilings of a building. As clean and dry as something might look, if not mitigated properly, the risk of mold growth can occur. 

If you live in a moisture-prone home, it’s important to keep an eye out for signs of suspicious growth. Not only can you see it but you will sometimes be able to smell it too. Monitoring your family for any changes in health is another sign.

Mold signs include:

  • Musty odor or mildew smell
  • Visible signs of growth on surfaces
  • Discovering water leaks or water stains
  • Health effects

Because there are similarities in symptoms to other common illnesses, many people don't think that mold is the cause. Therefore, it is important for all property owners to perform regular inspections around their building and keep an eye out for signs of mold.

Suspicious growth often occurs in places where leaks go unnoticed making water damage the most likely cause. SERVPRO of Alexandria has the training, technique, and tools to locate, remove, and dispose of mold. Call us at any time, any day at (318) 427 7511. We make your water damage our priority and make it look “Like it Never Even Happened”.
