MOLD DAMAGE in my home

We Are The Best At Identifying Mold And Restoring Your Plano Home.

SERVPRO of Plano provides fast and cost-effective mold remediation care for homeowners across the local area.

There are numerous species of fungi that cause mold damage in Plano and elsewhere across the United States, each with a different growth pattern and biological structure than its relatives.

Identifying mold damage in your home may not always be a clear-cut task, as some types of mold may not fit the standard bill of a green, fuzzy patch that slowly expands outward.

Here are some tips SERVPRO inspectors have learned over the years that might help you identify a colony before it gets out of hand.

Look For Discoloration Of Any Kind 
Not all mold damage in Plano is green. Some types of mold are black, brown, white, yellow, or even something else entirely. However, you should still be able to identify color differences between the fungus and whatever it has started to grow on if you look close enough. If the wall is painted green but a small section appears to be off-color, use a magnifying glass or look closer to see if that patch has any unusual textures. Be careful not to touch any part of your home that you suspect has mold growing on it.

Watch For Polka Dots 
Many types of mold appear as “polka dots” across a surface, as small patches develop in multiple areas at once. This can be a critical point in time to call in SERVPRO, as without fast action, these patches can grow and spread outward to become one massive colony. Look for these polka dots on clothing and other objects nearby, as they may also be affected.

Use Your Nose 
While most colonies can only be smelled once they reach a significant size, some species of mold may produce strong odors even in their infancy. Look out for musty or foul odors in any area that you suspect could be harboring mold growth.
