How do I know if I have mold?
One of the many questions SERVPRO of Macon gets on a regular basis is “How do I know if I have mold?” Mold requires moisture and a food source to grow such as wallpaper, drywall or other organic building materials. In most cases, mold grows from having high humidity in your home or business, a non-ventilated bathroom or a recent water loss. However, if you believe that you do have mold growing in your home or business it is best to have a qualified environmental lab take samples. An environmental lab will be able to explain the testing process and provide results based off of the samples taken from your home. Based off of those results, they provide recommendations on how the mold would need remediation. Then, SERVPRO can take those results and recommendations to properly remediate the home or business of any microbial growth
