Your Clover Residential Home and The Five Warning Signs of Mold

Five Signs You Could Have Mold On Your Property

As many water damage specialists know, mold can thrive on residential properties. In some cases, the mold is confined to the basement. In other incidences, the mold can show up in the floors and on the walls of the property. Although mold in your Clover residential home often goes undetected at first, it can eventually become very visible and wind up staining walls and ruining upholstery. To avoid this unwanted mold damage, it's important for homeowners to be able to recognize signs of mold. This early detection will enable them to rectify the problem before it becomes a serious issue. With that idea in mind, here are five signs that may indicate you have mold on your property:

Musty Odors

 Another sign that you may have Clover mold thriving on your property is musty odors. If the smell becomes profound when you turn on your AC or heater, it is likely that mold is living in your HVAC system.

High Water Bills

 In many cases, high water bills are a sign that you have mold on your property. This is because a high bill is a good indicator that you have a leak on the premises. The leak creates excess water and the moist, damp environment that mold likes to thrive in. For this reason, it's important to address and resolve leaks as soon as you become aware of the issue so mold damage doesn't occur.

Excess Humidity

Another sign that you may have mold in your Clover residential home is excess humidity. If a room of your house feels humid and damp all the time, mold could be lurking on the property.

A Leaky Roof

One final sign of mold growth is a leaky roof. Leaky roofs create the ideal setting for mold to grow in. If you note a leaky roof, follow the water path and see if you can identify any signs of mold.

Once you realize that mold is growing on your property, acting immediately and appropriately is important. The first step to take is calling a team of trained mold remediation specialists who can eradicate the unwanted fungus. The IICRC-certified specialists of our company can do this very thing with unprecedented expedience and excellence.
