If you’ve recently had a flood, there still might be danger after the water’s gone.
Flooding and other sources of water damage can be very stressful to deal with. The aftermath of water damage can leave you with a lot of cleaning and other responsibilities to take care of. However, once all of the water has been taken care of, there still might be work to do to keep your home safe from the effects of water damage.
Mold growth is common after flooding and other water damage, and you won’t want to ignore it. Mold spores can make you very sick, so if you’ve recently dealt with water damage, it’s a good idea to perform a home mold inspection.
There are several signs that point to possible mold growth in your West Palm Beach, Florida home. For example, a musty or damp smell, especially in dark areas, can indicate that mold has started growing. Increased allergy symptoms, including throat issues, sneezing, congestion, and coughing, may also point towards needing a home mold inspection, especially if these symptoms have recently started worsening after your home has taken on water damage. Even without these symptoms, it’s also a good idea to test for mold if you’ve recently dealt with leaks or floods just in case.
When it comes to mold growth, it’s best to stay on the safe side and test for mold as soon as you think there might be a problem. We offer home mold inspection services here at Coastal Air Assessments, so reach out to us today for a professional look into possible mold presence in your home.
