First Sign Mold is Growing in Your Home!

8/28/2017 (Permalink)



The first sign mold is growing in your home after a water damage. Mildew Smell.  Mildew in bathrooms and basements is not uncommon in our area. The heat and high humidity make the Upper Valley area an ideal haven for mildew and mold growth.  The difference after a flood or significant water damage is that this growth spreads to other areas of the home. If at the end of the day you return home to even a slight aroma of mildew, chances are mold is starting to take root. The time to act is now. Frequently, SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton team is called to a recently water-damaged home only to find that proper cleaning, dehumidifying, and drying was not completed prior to rebuilding. This often leads to the quick development of a serious mold infestation. 

Since we can quickly become desensitized to the smell of mildew, it is wise to close up your home for a day without the air conditioner running, and then walk through inspecting for suspicious odors. At the first sign of mold or mildew, contact SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton so we can conduct a thorough investigation and fix the source of the smell.

If you think you might have a mold problem, call SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton at 603.298.6942 in the Upper Valley and surrounding area, or 603.444.7900 for the Littleton surrounding areas. Our service technicians are trained in mold remediation and will examine the structure for any visible signs of mold growth. In the event mold is found, we can determine the best route for remediation.
