Damp Areas Can Cause Mold

1/9/2019 (Permalink)


Besides causing major interruptions to your property, exposure to mold can present serious health effects. Mold grows in damp, warm humid environments. If you have had previous water issues, there could be a high possibility you have mold growing in your Houston, TX home/establishment. Most common forms of mold may be found around bathrooms, basements, ceilings, windows, insulation, and around plumbing pipes. Signs that you have a moisture problem include water stains or discoloration on walls, floors, or ceilings. If your walls are bowed, bulging or warped it probably means moisture has gotten into them. Additional signs that you may be facing a moisture problem are surface abnormalities like peeling, bubbling, or cracking of the paint or wallpaper. Seeing these signs could be a clue that there is mold growing within or behind the material.

The above signs and problems in homes are usually created by leaks that breed mold. Mold can spread quickly through a property if left untreated. Mold growth from leaks can often be hidden, even if the leak is not behind the surface, due to seeping. If you have had previous water leaks, even if you haven't seen the signs of water damage, it's a good possibility that you may have mold and should get it checked. SERVPRO can quickly respond to contain the infestation to help prevent the spread of mold to other parts of the property.
