Locating Mold Damage in Your Lake Zurich Residence

There are many situations which threaten your Lake Zurich home throughout your time living there. While many homeowners must contend with natural disasters and the devastation they can cause, it is equally as problematic when homeowners face situations like mold and microbial growth. This presence in your home can threaten not only the structural integrity but also your family and pets living on the property. 

Learning how to identify mold damages or the presence of a colony in your Lake Zurich home is essential to making remediation and restoration simpler and more effective. If a homeowner can spot a problem as it begins, or identify a mold colony without seeing one, remediation technicians from our SERVPRO team can help to resolve the situation before it gets out of control. 

A leading identifier to mold growth in your home is the odor that active colonies emit. This symptom is a strong, musty scent that can indicate that a colony is actively growing nearby. This information can prove invaluable, as many colonies can grow and thrive inside of wall cavities, crawl spaces, and in areas challenging to see. The musty symptom here can help you to identify a colony, even if you cannot necessarily see one. 

Another symptom of early colonization is spotting, a situation where you can visually identify the beginning phase of mold integration into the organic materials of the affected area. Often the easiest material to see spotting on is drywalled surfaces. You are looking for an irregular pattern of spots, splotches, and dots in various hues. Surprisingly, not all residential mold is green or black, so if something appears to fit this description, it is worth reaching out to our SERVPRO inspection services. 

Routine inspections of your property can help you to identify situations like mold and microbial growth before they get out of control. If you do encounter the symptoms listed here, you should trust our SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich certified remediation specialists to help you take care of removal and restoration. Call us anytime at (847) 279-1940.
