How Our Experts Identify Mold Growing In Your San Jose Home

Identifying Mold Growth in Your San Jose Home

Many San Jose homeowners battle recurring issues like moisture and dampness throughout parts of their home and even underneath it. What makes situations like this so problematic is the potential for hazards like mold growth to occur with little warning or time required. In a matter of a few days, mold spores in the environment can interact with this persistent moisture and colonize.

One of the vital things to remember about mold damage in your San Jose home is that it is preventable. You have to have the appropriate education about what to look for and the conditions that you need to prevent throughout your property, but mold growth is not an inevitability. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you to identify the presence of a colony and to remove it, but there are some things that you should be on the lookout for as well.

Mold spores exist in nearly every environment that you find yourself in from the areas inside of your house, to your workplace, to the car that you drive back and forth. One of the things that make mold growth such a persistent threat in itself is the impossibility of removing these spores entirely. Therefore, you should be mindful of areas within your house that are usually damp and moisture-ridden. Correcting these problem areas before the growth of a colony can save you time, money, and possibly even health effects.

When these colonies begin to form in areas that have met the conditions for the growth, you can expect certain symptoms to arise. The first of these is a harsh, musty odor. This scent is indicative of an active colony and can warn you of the presence of the organism even when you cannot see it. Another symptom is spotting, which becomes most easily distinguished on materials like drywall. If you see irregular spots forming on drywall in damp areas of your house, you should contact our SERVPRO remediation specialists immediately.

Our experts are ready 24/7 to help you diagnose a potential issue with mold growth or to begin the process of removing an active colony. Let our SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno specialists help you overcome this organism wherever you find it in your home. Call us today at (408) 600-2020.
