How to Detect Mold in Your Home

4/20/2019 (Permalink)

Have you ever wondered how to detect mold in your home? Are you concerned that water in basement areas is dangerous to your health? Flooding and water damage are very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture and more. If you don’t act fast, mold, water damage and more can destroy your home or business.

SERVPRO Can Inspect Water in Basement

When it comes to mold and water in basement areas, there are a few ways to inspect:

  • Let your nose lead the way. Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Get familiar with the state of your plumbing, which will help you be able to catch leaks and other issues quickly.
  • Check if your bathroom is getting especially steamy during bathing or you see a small drip in your basement ceiling.
  • Be sure gutters are in their proper positions and downspouts are properly connected and turned away from your foundation. Water should be diverted at least 5 feet away from your foundation, so it doesn’t pool against your home or collect water in basement.

At SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel, our highly trained technicians follow a simple process that can detect mold and guarantee results. Call us at (732) 290-3170 when you need us, and we’ll be there.
