Mold Removal Silicon Valley: Early Indicators and When to Seek Professional Help

There are certain rules to follow when it comes to mold removal. While there are a few surfaces you might be able to handle on your own, you have to be careful about what you are handling and whether it’s a task that is best handled by a professional company. 

Understanding the early indicators of mold and when to call a professional may just save you significant sums of money in the long run. Check out these indicators for more information! 


One of the telltale signs of mold damage is rotting, musty, or damp odors. While you may not be able to see the mold, if you can smell it there is a problem that needs to be addressed. In this scenario, you will want to hire a professional to help you determine exactly where the mold is and the extent of it. 

Water Damage

If you have water damage that is more than 24 hours old, you likely also have mold as well. When water damage happens, mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours. This doesn’t always guarantee mold will grow, but there is a major risk for it. If you experience water damage, calling the professionals is a good choice because they can assess for mold and treat it right away. 

Asthma, Allergies, and Sickness

Sometimes you don’t see or smell mold, but you notice subtle health signs. If anyone in your household is experiencing asthma, allergies, or a persistent cough, this could be an early indicator of hidden mold. You might even watch for asthma and allergy that seems to never go away or perhaps seems to get worse in certain areas. These could be signs you have mold and need to bring in the pros. 

When to Bring in Professional Help

If the mold you find is on a smooth surface, like your bathtub or sinktop, you can use bleach and rags to kill the mold spores and wipe them away. Be sure to properly dispose of the rag you use. 

However, if the mold damages are more than ten square feet in diameter or are on a surface that is porous in nature, you will need a more detailed approach to getting rid of this mold. In these situations, call a professional company to assess the situation and help you eradicate the mold for good. They will have the training and equipment to do it right and get all the mold eliminated.
