These 3 Signs Could Mean Mold In Your Home or Business

Signs of microbial growth found in an Oxford, MS apartment.

There’s a four-letter word every homeowner and/or business owner hates to hear—mold.  Not only is it something that most people are terrified of, it also can cause damage but also be a health hazard.  Keep in mind not all everything that appears to be mold, is in fact actually mold.  Here are three warning signs of microbial growth that you should pay attention to:

  1. Water spots are a potential sign of microbial growth. These can be found in numerous places in your home or business.  Pay attention to around your air vents, behind sinks, ceilings and walls.  If you find a place that has suspected moisture make sure you act quickly.  Using someone with proper training such as SERVPRO of Oxford/Batesville/Clarksdale is always a good option.
  2. Discoloration is another sign. If there is a spot that is an off color from the rest of the wall or ceiling or floor that is possibly yellow/green/black that is sign of microbial growth. 
  3. Smell is the third sign. Microbial growth can cause a bad smell and depending on the type of microbial growth and how far it’s reached the smell can be strong or faint.  Any odd smell in your home or business should be properly investigated.

Even though microbial growth is the last thing a home or business owner wants to hear, it should not be ignored.  If you suspect any of these warning signs call 662-281-1881 and SERVPRO of Oxford/Batesville/Clarksdale can help.  Not only do we have trained staff we also have the proper equipment and products to use in mold remediation.
