Detecting and Removing Hidden Mold
Inspecting and Removing A Mold Infestation
Typically, when we think of mold, we picture a green, fuzzy substance stuck on a hard surface. However, when it comes to mold damage, the mold in question is not always so visually significant. In fact, many homeowners dealing with (potentially dangerous) mold damage might not even be aware of the issue, to begin with. This is what is known as hidden mold. Now, although hidden mold is just that - hidden, this doesn't mean you can't find it, assuming you know what to look for.

Not only is removing mold on your own a tricky endeavor, but it can also be downright dangerous. Of course, you'll first need to know whether or not you have mold damage to begin with. Let's take a look at some of the telltale signs of hidden mold damage.
Firstly, have you noticed any water damage on your walls or ceiling? Although even the cleanest of water damage already seems bad enough, it often carries with it an even more grave danger - mold. No matter how light or seemingly-benign a house's water damage is, you can be sure that it will lay down the foundation needed for mold to thrive. Also, if you've noticed a musty smell in one or more rooms throughout your house, you may very well be dealing with hidden mold.
Lastly, even if a surface *seems* sanitary, it may still carry the risk of mold. In fact, mold can even grow on soapy surfaces. As such, it's better to be safe and give us a call at the first sign of mold, no matter how unlikely it may seem.
