Homeowners in Fort Myers should be able to relax in a home safe from threats to their health. However, that’s often not the case. Even a very minor water leak can cause mold growth, and flooding or major water incursions can cause very serious mold issues. Not sure if your Fort Myers home is as safe as it should be? A mold inspection can help. Here are three signs that you need a mold inspection.
1. The Smell
One of the most common signs that you need a mold inspection is a damp, dank, earth-like smell in your home. This is produced by mold, and is often the first indication that something is wrong.
2. Black or Green Spots
If you notice black or green spots on your walls or ceiling, this is another sign that you need a mold inspection. Those spots are actually mold, and it is possible that it’s eating through from the back of the sheetrock.
3. You Experience Exposure-Related Symptoms
If you or someone in your family experiences symptoms of mold exposure, then a mold inspection is vital. These symptoms can include standard allergy symptoms, such as a runny nose, itchy eyes and the like. However, they can also include chronic headache, chronic fatigue, and other symptoms. If you have seen any of these three signs, or simply suspect that mold might be growing in your home, get in touch with us at FP Property Restoration.
