Regular Mold Inspections In Your Durango Home Can Reduce Widespread Damages
Regular Mold Inspections Can Reduce Widespread Damages
Keeping up with your Durango home might seem like a constant chore to many homeowners in the area. With the threats from severe weather systems throughout significant portions of the year and other natural threats to the stability and functionality of your home, many homeowners tend to overlook the potential problems that could exist in the less frequented areas of their homes.
When homeowners think of situations like mold damage in their Durango home, many attribute this occurrence to dirtiness or some different catalyst. In truth, mold spores exist microscopically in almost every environment we encounter, including every area of your home. With this in mind, these spores are only waiting for the conditions to get met for them to seat into organic materials and colonize.
Finding a colony can prove challenging in your home, primarily if it occurs in an area that you do not frequent very often. Crawlspaces and basements are two favorite locations for mold growth to occur, and both of these are often less trafficked areas of the house. While an active colony often emits a strong musty odor, this can get missed if you are not in the vicinity of the colony. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you to identify the presence of mold and potential risks for growth from unresolved moisture sources.
Inspections are an excellent way for you to stay ahead of a potential problem before it gets out of control. While ultimately these situations often still require the expertise of our SERVPRO remediation technicians, catching a problem early can aid in preserving structural materials from degrading to the point of being unsalvageable. Often, mold growth occurs in damp and dark locations in or around your home. Early indicators are random spots on drywall and wood, which can indicate that spores have started to colonize.
More often than not, homeowners do not know they have a problem until it is out of their control. If you find mold growth in your house, you can always count on our SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma & San Juan Counties remediation technicians to arrive quickly and get to work on removing this presence. Our rapid response team is standing by now at (970) 259-6184.
