What To Do When Mold Finds You
Finding mold in your home or office can be an unpleasant experience, to say the least. Often, mold shows up as a musty odor that you can’t quite trace, but it can also show up visibly as green, brown, or black flecks, discolorations, or fuzzy growths. No matter what form mold takes, it certainly means problems ahead. It can be tempting to ignore a minor mold outbreak, but do so at your own peril! Ignoring early signs of mold can lead to a much bigger mold infestation later on—hurting not only your pocketbook but also your air quality! The professional team at Rewind Emergency Services have a few tips to help you deal with this common problem.
Here are a few things you can do if you’ve discovered mold on your property:
Step One: Testing
If you think you may have mold but are unable to find physical evidence to correlate the musty smell in your basement, it might be time to test for mold. Some strains of mold spores can be extremely hazardous to your health, so it is always good to find out what type of mold you’re sharing your space with. While over the counter testing kits can help you to determine whether or not there is mold, hiring a professional mold detection and removal service is a much safer bet.

Step Two: Locating the Problem
Again, not all signs of mold will be easily visible. Locating the source of your mold problem can be tricky business. One thing to be aware of is that mold only grows where the conditions are right. Mold needs moisture to grow, as well as organic material. Any place in your building where the humidity reaches above 50% can be susceptible to mold.
Step Three: Remediation
The only way to truly get rid of your mold problem is to not only remove all traces of mold from the building but also to remediate the circumstances that allowed mold to form in the first place. The experts at Rewind Emergency Services have experience in locating and removing mold safely and permanently. We will find the source of the moisture which is allowing mold to grow so that you will be left mold and worry-free in the days ahead.
