Mold In Your Home? Here's How To Tell.
Don’t get me wrong, I love this weather. The rains are making it cool down, despite the humidity. It legitimately is starting to feel like fall here in North Texas! But with all this rain comes flooding and leaks in the home, and if that’s not taken care of – paired with the humidity it can lead to mold.
That’s why it’s important to keep an eye out for any leaks or unexpected flooding that may have popped up in your house. The faster you take care of the water damage, the less of a chance you have for a mold problem. But in case you missed a leak or any other unexpected water damages there are a few ways you can tell if you’ve got mold in your home.
- The most obvious way to tell if you’ve got mold in your home is if you can actually see it. It can be a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. If you suspect what you see is mold, give SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County a call and we can come out and look at it for you.
- If you notice a musty or strange odor that’s out of place in your home or certain rooms of your home, there’s a pretty good chance in your home has mold.
- Keep an eye out for yourself too, your health can be a very telling sign as to whether or not there is mold in your home. Keep an eye out for signs of the common cold like a runny nose, cough, sneezing and other things. If you notice you only feel like this in your home it’s important to call an expert like SERVPRO to remove the mold from your home ASAP, as some mold can be way more dangerous.
