If you’ve suffered water damage at your home, you may be looking for a Miami mold specialist to conduct mold testing. Having this type of damage will not only cause major stress, but it can always lead to structural damage as well as mold and mildew growth. That is why Restoration Doctor in Miami is sharing some advice on ways to figure out whether or not there is mold lurking in your house. 


When Do Stains and Water Marks Mean, it’s Time for Mold Testing?

Any Miami mold specialist will tell you that water damage doesn’t only cause significant damage to your home, but it can also cause structural damage and mold growth that you may not even notice. If you’ve experienced any type of mold growth in the last few months, it is critical that you are on the lookout for mold growth in your house. Even if there was only a small amount of water left behind, it is possible for mold to form and grow rapidly. 


If you notice any type of stains on your ceilings or walls, this is a good indication that there could be mold beginning to grow. If you don’t catch and stop the growth immediately, you will most likely have a significant cleanup on your hands in the future. It usually takes some time for water stains to form and become visible, which means that the leak has been happening for a good amount of time. This is why it is crucial for you to call in a professional restoration company so they can inspect the area and locate the leak and repair it quickly. 


Another type of stain that you may notice if you’ve had water damage in your home is mold stains. If you see these on your ceiling or wall, this means that you have mold overgrowth. This can occur in between the walls, in your attic, in the basement, as well as in any type of crawlspaces you have. Once you’re able to see a mold stain, that means you have a substantial mold problem that you won’t be able to correct on your own. As soon as you see the presence of a mold stain, you need to call in a disaster cleanup team. They will come in find the source of the leak, repair it, and then begin to remove the mold. It is imperative that you leave any mold removal to the professionals because there are a lot of risks that come along with removing it from your house. Also, if the mold isn’t taken out completely, it will continue to multiply in your house, and you will end up having to remove it again. Calling in the professionals to remove any type of mold will give you a guarantee that all the mold will be gone, and you will no longer have a mold problem.
