Have you spotted what you believe to be mold growing on the sheetrock in your home? Mold can be an indication of a water leak, and it can also lead to very serious health problems. Remediation is vital, but you’ll want to have a mold inspection first. What’s involved in a mold inspection and how might it benefit you?
What Is It?
Simply put, a mold inspection is really nothing more than having a trained, experienced professional come to your Tallahassee home and inspect it for signs of mold. If mold is found, then the professional will track the mold growth to its source in an attempt to determine the underlying cause.
Finding the Water
Mold requires moisture in order to grow, so mold on the walls, floor or other areas of your home indicates the water is present. Obviously, there should be no water inside your walls or under your floor. This could be a sign that you have a leaking water pipe, a roof leak, deteriorating paneling outside the home, and a number of other problems.
The Right Steps, Right Now
Perhaps the single most important benefit of having a mold inspection is that it allows you to take immediate action. Mold can have serious effects on your health and that of your family. Water incursions can wreak havoc on your home, causing serious, costly damage. An inspection is key to alleviating that problem.
