Be Sure When You Need Mold Remediation for Your Troy Property

Homeowners must be well-informed about how to check mold levels in their houses. Understanding what is and isn’t mold, along with mold types and concentrations, can empower you to develop a plan to remove harmful fungi from your property.  

When Do You Need Remediation? 

The need for mold remediation in your Troy home may become apparent if you notice a persistent musty smell, discoloration on walls or ceilings, or visual signs of mold growth such as black, white, or green patches. In that case, it’s time to investigate high-moisture areas, such as under your sink, in the bathroom, or in the basement. If you see further evidence of mold, you should take the necessary steps to determine if your home requires attention from a specialist. 

  • Make Sure It Isn’t Something Else 

Before concluding that mold is present in your home, it’s necessary to rule out all alternatives. Don’t jump to conclusions without carefully examining the suspect area. Remember that dirt, dust, and insect waste can all mimic molds’ organic growth patterns. If you need more clarification, try cleaning the area to see if the issue persists. Be mindful that mold removal is complex and requires proper elimination to prevent it from returning.  

  • At-Home Testing 

If you suspect your house has mold, purchasing an at-home mold testing kit is one of the best options. These kits are available at various prices and can measure mold in the air or on surfaces. They can confirm your suspicions if you already see what you think is mold. However, remember that only some tests can identify the type of mold growing in your home, and they are not always guaranteed to be accurate or avoid false positives. When in doubt—contact a professional.
