1) Keep Your Eyes Open.
Whether it is clearly on the wall, above your shower, under your sink, or around your ductwork registers having mold growth throughout your home may be dangerous and detrimental to your health. Mold releases toxins called mycotoxins which can cause serious health issues which, after a long period of time, may lead to serious disease or even death. Mold growth is not uncommon in the typical home but knowing how to handle your specific and unique mold situation is what SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor is here for. Each mold growth situation is different from the other and knowing what to do and how to adapt is what our professional and certified technicians do best! So if you see mold you know exactly who to trust and call.
2) Use Your Nose.
What about the areas you can't see without tearing into material in your home? What if you can't see behind your shower or into a wall cavity? When mold grows throughout your home, often, it may release an unfamiliar odor in the affected area. If you sense that there may be mold in an area of your home call SERVPRO. We will come to your home, working with your schedule, and we will use our advanced technology and knowledge to assess the damaged areas of your home. Ignoring the issue may lead to additional problems.
3) Call SERVPRO!
If you don't see mold or smell it, can you guarantee there is no mold present in your home? It is usually the mold that isn't on the surface that goes the longest undetected. If you have any concern, or just need a peace of mind, call SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor for an inspection.
