If you suspect there could be mold on your property, don’t hesitate to reach out and get a professional mold inspection.

Symptoms of Mold
Because most mold species grow in dark, wet locations, they’re often hidden from plain view. By the time you visually notice mold, it’s likely already been sitting around in your building for days or weeks. Thankfully, there are other signs and symptoms that point to potential mold growth. Staying aware of these can help you identify a mold problem in its early stages.
Previous Water Damage
Water damage is the leading cause of mold in most homes and offices. If your property recently suffered water damage, there’s a good chance you could have mold growth. At Dansel Restoration, we always fully inspect your building for mold whenever we perform our water damage restoration services. But if you had someone else clean up your water damage or you took care of it yourself, you should still have a professional mold inspection performed to ensure your building is safe.
While visuals aren’t always the best method for identifying early signs of mold, your nose can often pick up on it quickly. Most mold species produce a heavy, musty scent. If you notice this in your home or office, it could be a sign of mold or mildew growth. Identifying where the smell is most pungent can help the mold inspection process find any traces of mold more quickly.
Mold affects your health when you breathe in the spores. Even a small amount of exposure can affect your respiratory system, especially for those who have weakened immune systems. If you or visitors to your building start to notice allergic reactions when you are otherwise healthy or not affected by allergies, it could point to mold. Symptoms such as dry and itchy eyes, runny noses, and scratchy throats are all commonly associated with mold growth.

Types of Mold
While all molds are hazardous to your health, some are more so than others. Our mold inspection process uses the most extensive safety equipment to protect against any dangers, as you may not know what kind of mold you’re up against until you test it. Preparing for the worst helps us keep our technicians and your property safe during the inspection.
Allergenic mold growth is the best-case scenario. These tend to be some of the most commonly found molds in homes or offices, and we can clean and remove them with standard cleaners. Allergenic molds are less hazardous than other molds; they cause allergic reactions but pose a mild threat of severe health problems. However, this is not a reason to delay inspection and removal. The longer you breathe in allergenic mold, the more harm it can cause. Children who are overexposed to allergenic molds often develop lifelong respiratory issues such as asthma.
Pathogenic mold poses a similar health threat as allergenic mold for most healthy adults. But for those with respiratory issues or weakened immune systems, pathogenic molds can be very hazardous. Pathogenic molds also require industry-standard cleaners to properly remove the spores and sanitize the area to prevent further growth.
The most common toxic mold is the dreaded black mold, but there are many other species that can affect your home and office. Toxic mold is extremely dangerous and should only be handled by trained professionals using high-quality safety equipment. Toxic mold can cause disease and illness if inhaled or if it comes in contact with skin. Extreme caution and diligent cleaning are required to ensure that the toxic spores are fully removed from the area.
