There are some home maintenance tasks you can do alone and others that require professional assistance. For example, if you have mold, we at Remtech Environmental strongly encourage you to use our professional mold removal services. In this article, we will go over a few ways to tell if you might need mold removal services.

How to Tell if You Need Mold Removal Services

  • Musty Smell – In our experience, people often smell mold before they see it. After all, mold frequently grows in dark, out-of-the-way areas where it is unlikely to be noticed, but it gives off a distinctive, musty odor. If you notice a persistent musty or damp smell in any part of your home, we encourage you to call our team to have our technicians check it out. Then, if mold is indeed present, we can provide the thorough mold removal services you need.
  • Staining – Another sign you may need mold removal services is staining or discoloration on your walls, ceiling, or floors. If you see any specks of a grey, black, green, or blue substance in these areas, then you likely have a mold problem. Streaks of red, pink, or brown mold are not uncommon either. In addition, because mold thrives in damp conditions, water staining often goes hand in hand with mold.
  • Allergies – A third indication you may require mold removal services is an increase in allergy symptoms. If you or anyone else in your household is sneezing or coughing more frequently, or experiences congestion, then we encourage you to get your home checked for mold, as breathing in spores can cause these issues. Certain types of mold can also cause other symptoms, such as rashes or even cognitive impairment, so watch out for those as well.
