Water Leaks and Mold Damage
As a homeowner, the last thing one wants to discover is mold; it's unsightly and the smell can overpower a home. Sometimes a water leak can be so well hidden that it goes undetected long enough for mold to grow. Here are some signs of mold damage that are a result of a water leak:
1. Utility Bills:
If you notice a significant jump in your water bill over a consecutive number of months, this can be a red flag and be a result of a water leak. If your water usage hasn't gone up to your knowledge, it's worth looking into further to make sure there aren't any leaks in your home.
2. Excessive Moisture:
If you notice that walls or baseboards in your kitchen, bathroom, or basement are warped, this can be an indication of water damage and potential mold growth. Mold thrives in dark, damp areas. SERVPRO is trained to detect and remove mold, extract water, and make sure that there won't be any further mold growth.
3. Water Stains and Discoloration
If you notice water stains and discoloration in walls, ceilings, or flooring and haven't spilled anything, peeling paint or wallpaper, there's a good chance that mold damage is present.
