How Do You Know It’s Time for a Palm Springs Mold Inspection?

Mold is a serious issue that shouldn’t be treated lightly. If you suspect that your property has mold, don’t wait until it’s had time to grow out of control before contacting an expert; get help immediately while the problem is still manageable. If you’re not sure your home or business has a mold problem, here are a few signs to look for:

  1. Strange Growths

One of the most evident signs to look for is visible signs of mold. While mold typically develops in extremely moist places like in the basement, under sinks, in the bathroom, etc. it can appear practically anywhere including on walls, floors, and cabinets. The color of mold can vary depending upon what type it is, but it will usually appear either in a cluster of spots or as a thread-like substance. If you see any unusual material that looks like this, it’s time to schedule a Palm Springs Mold Inspection.

  1. Musty Smells

Another major indication that you have mold in your home is the presence of a musty smell. While not all molds produce a detectable odor, many of them do. This odor will often remain, even after you’ve cleaned the area; that means the mold is hidden somewhere you can’t see it and you should consider calling in a professional to conduct an inspection. 

  1. Recurring Sickness

A buildup of mold in your home or business could be affecting the health of your family members or employees. Mold can cause all sorts of symptoms, including coughing, shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, and tightness in the throat and nose. Unfortunately, these symptoms often appear to be similar to allergies, which can make it difficult to determine their cause. If family members or employees are experiencing recurring illnesses with allergy-like symptoms, this could indicate your property has a mold problem.  

  1. Water Damage

Water damage is also a common indication that mold may be present. Mold requires several things in order to grow: oxygen, food, and water. If placed in a dry environment, mold will grow slowly or not at all but once it has access to a water source, it can quickly become unmanageable. This is especially true in a hot climate like Palm Springs, where high temperatures can encourage mold growth.

Check underneath your cabinets, in your basement, in the bathroom, and in other damp places. Do you see any visible water damage where a pipe has leaked or a sink has overflowed? If so, then there’s a greater chance that mold has been able to grow in the area.

  1. And More

You should also consider having a mold inspection done even if you don’t see signs of its growth. For example, any time you buy or sell a it’s a good idea to have a Palm Springs Mold Inspection done as a preventative measure.

You should also consider mold testing if you’re expecting a baby; young children are especially susceptible to the damaging effects of mold. By investing in a mold inspection, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’ve done all you can to protect your family.
