While it may not be the most pleasant thing to think about, it is important to stay on top of mold growth in your living environment, especially in Plantation, where it can be hot and humid most days of the year. Mold thrives in damp conditions and, if left untreated too long, can destroy your property and become a health hazard to you and your family. MVP Environmental Solutions is here to help residential homes and commercial buildings identify mold, find its location, and eliminate it. However, mold testing in Plantation is the first step in protecting your property and those who reside in it. If you are unsure if you should get your property tested for mold, here are a few reasons why you should:

  • If you have recently experienced a leak in your home
  • If you can smell mold or mildew
  • If you need to find the location of the mold
  • If you need to measure the number of spores in the air
  • If you have recently removed mold from your home and you want to make sure it is completely gone.

Most people are not exactly sure what mold looks like because it often looks like a brownish-black dirt stain on your walls or ceiling. Here are three of the most common signs of mold:

  1. Strange odor

If you smell something out of the ordinary like mildew, you may have mold growth in your home.  Try and locate where the smell is strongest to find the source of the problem. However, mold detection can be difficult without the proper equipment. If you suspect mold, it is best to call the expert technicians at MVP Environmental Solutions. We will thoroughly test, identify the strain, and remove it for you safely.

  1. Visible growth

Mold does not always stay hidden; sometimes, it can grow even in the most visible of places. However, most people do not recognize or notice it until it’s too late. It is important to note that mold’s color can appear black, white, gray-green, or even gray-brown.  Always look for any unusual growth, especially in areas that receive high moisture such as bathrooms, garages, and laundry rooms.

  1. Water damage

Areas that are susceptible to water damage are prime locations for mold to grow. Look out for any water stains on your walls, ceilings, and floor. Discoloration could mean that mold is already forming beneath the surface and causing some damage.
