Nearly 70% of homes across the United States are estimated to suffer mold damage. Charlotte homes, in particular, face the overwhelming challenge of dealing with high humidity during certain seasons and the constant potential for leaks and burst pipes. Understanding when these situations arise can make the difference between effective remediation strategies and more costly repairs. AdvantaClean can help with everything from the initial mold inspection and confirmation phases to effective and efficient remediation solutions. Can you recognize the signs of needing mold damage remediation

The Signs of Impending Mold Remediation 

1: You Can See Mold

Most understand they need mold removal in Charlotte properties when they physically see the change. Mold can be a very inclusive term for what you might experience when it forms in your house. Sometimes, you have irregular spotting of various colors like green, black, and red. Sometimes, the consistency is slimy; other times, it is more of a powder. Discovering mold colonies in your household aims to discover discoloration or changes to porous building materials and contents that didn't exist before. You can begin your search in areas prone to high moisture, such as the bathroom, the attic, and the basement. 

2: Strong Odors in Problem Areas 

Odors are another way to signal the development of mold colonies in your residence. Walking into a laundry room or bathroom and being struck by a musty malodor can indicate that microbial organisms are taking root. Spreading spores and growing colonies emit a distinct odor via microbial volatile organic compounds, which can be especially noticeable in spaces with less than adequate ventilation.

3: Poorly Managed Water Damage 

Where there's water damage, mold damage can quickly follow. DIY cleanup can be one of the quickest paths to mold growth in your household, as many property owners fail to complete the drying process fully. Moisture left in wall cavities or porous building materials creates a veritable breeding ground for spores to become active colonies in as little as 48 hours. A competent restoration team like AdvantaClean will ensure that the full structural drying is completed and that no signs of mold exist before we finish. 

The Benefits of Professional Mold Removal Services 

  • Your Home: The detection and remediation of active mold threats to your residence can only help it stay strong and stable for its lifetime. Mold can destroy sensitive materials like drywall, carpeting, and insulation, making removal and prevention essential for every homeowner. AdvantaClean can help with the cleanup and long-term preventative solutions to keep your home less susceptible to repeating microbial threats.  

  • Your Belongings: Like the damage mold can do to building materials, it can also wreak havoc on textiles, fabrics, and soft goods. Any organic material supporting a mold colony becomes a food source for the spreading organism and could be irreparably damaged. 

  • Your Health: While not every colony spreading in your home can impact your health, the potential for allergic reactions, respiratory concerns, or hazardous mycotoxin exposure should not be dismissed. Proper mold removal can address these airborne threats.
