At Integral Choice Corp., we know you care about your home or business, and we want to help you keep it in great condition. One of the most common issues home and business owners need to be prepared for is mold. If mold gets into your building, it can not only do serious damage over time, but can also cause a variety of health problems.
Fortunately, our team is here to provide the accurate mold testing services you need. In this article, we’ll go over a few signs that you may have a mold problem—if you notice any of the following, we encourage you to schedule mold testing services as soon as possible.
- Musty Odor – One of the most noticeable signs of a mold problem is the distinctive damp, musty odor mold gives off. If any areas of your home or commercial building start to take on this smell, or they don’t smell as fresh as they used to, you should schedule mold testing services in the very near future.
- Carpet Stains – Mold thrives in dark, damp environments, which means it’s easy for it to take up residence in carpet fibers, especially if the carpet is exposed to a lot of moisture. If mold starts to grow in your carpets, you will most likely see dark stains forming on them, and you may also see spots of mold trapped in the fibers. Needless to say, if you see this happening in your building, give us a call right away to get our mold testing experts on the job.
- Allergy Flare–Ups – A third sign you may have a mold problem is an increase in the frequency of your allergy or asthma flare-ups. Similarly, if anyone in your building is experiencing more frequent colds, sore throats, runny noses, or similar symptoms, the root cause of all of it may be mold spores in the air. Our mold testing experts will find out for sure, and we’ll advise you on the next steps you should take.
