It's also a good idea to know the location of your water main, and shut it off as fast as you find a leak.

another good thing to do is installing water detection devices: A water detector is a small electronic device that sounds an alarm when its sensor comes in contact with moisture. Its main benefit is that it detects slow leaks that often go unnoticed and also low moisture levels. you should install it near water heaters, sump pumps, washing machines, dishwashers and toilets. 

What to Do When You Can't See Mold

Mold Remediation What to Do When You Can't See Mold If you suspect you have a mold problem, SERVPRO of S.San Rafael/Sausalito has the proper equipment to inspect the level of mold spores at your home.

Mold can be found both indoor and outdoor. It can enter your home through open doorways, windows, vents, and heating and air conditioning systems.  But sometimes you simply can’t find it by ordinary means, even when you nearly tear your house apart.  Mold can hide in attic insulation, in the wall cavity between drywall sheets, or between a finished basement ceiling and the floor upstairs.  If your home has a musty odor or anyone with allergies to mold seem to have more symptoms in your home, you probably have a mold problem. 

Here's What to Do When You Can't See Mold:

  • Mold Testing -  If you have a mold problem somewhere in your home, you should hire a professional mold tester.  Mold tests can help you narrow down the location of hidden mold by telling you the places in your home with the highest amount of mold spores. 
  • Identifying Mold Species - Simply have it identified so you know whether it’s a toxic mold or not.  This is important for toxic molds since extra caution needs to be taken to safely remove toxic mold from the home.
  • Mold Testing for Indoor Air Quality - You should have mold testing done to tell you the amount of mold spores in the air.  By testing for mold you can tell if there is an unhealthy level of spores in your house and find out if any allergies you might have are from mold.

Since mold can produce allergens and irritants, you should call SERVPRO of S.San Rafael/Sausalito to inspect your home if you suspect you have a mold problem.  We have the training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
