3 Ways to Identify Mold in Your Inglewood Home

"Mold Damage? No Problem" written on wall with mold. If you notice any of these signs in your home, please do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Inglewood today – (424) 223-4153

While we all hope that mold will never be found in our homes, if you don’t know what signs you are looking for, you may not be able to identify the problem until damage is extremely severe. Mold could be right under your nose without your knowledge, as mold can hide under carpeting or behind your drywall. Here are some signs that can help you identify if mold is in your home:

Musty, Pungent Smell

Even if mold is not visible, it doesn’t mean it isn’t lurking in your home. If you notice an unpleasant smell while entering a room in your home, be sure to thoroughly check the area. You can even go the extra mile and hire an industrial hygienist, who can perform several different mold tests that can identify if you have mold or not.

Visible Dark Rings & Spots

The appearance of dark rings or spots on drywall or sheetrock in your home is an early sign for the presence of mold.

Visible Growth/Odd Coloring

Despite the most widely known “black mold,” mold can actually vary in its range of colors. If there is mold present in your home, you may notice the appearance of dark, furry growths that can vary in color from orange, brown, green, and even white.
