The word "mold" can be scary for a homeowner.

The word "mold" can be scary for a homeowner.

Not only can it cause damage to your home, it  can also be a potential health hazard to you and your family. Here are three warning signs that you shouldn't ignore: 

1) Water spots

Any wet spot in your home can be a potential sign of mold growth. This may include water spots on your ceilings or walls, or on floors in your basement or crawlspace. If you find evidence of water spots, you need to find the source of moisture and have it taken care of immediately. 

2) Discoloration

If you find a spot on a wall or floor that's discolored, it is a potential sign of mold. Discoloration that is green or black is a definite warning sign of mold growth. However, any discoloration can mean growth is present, even if it isn't of the tell-tale colors.

3) Bad smell

If you have mold growth in your home, it may cause a bad smell. Depending on the type and how much of it you have, it could be a very faint smell or it could be completely overwhelming. It can smell musty or earthy, or produce a more pungent odor. Any bad smell needs to be investigated and addressed.

Mold is not something to be ignored. If you experience any of the warning signs above, call the experts here at SERVPRO of The East End. Our trained and certified team is here to help.
