Mold is a very sneaky organism. If given the opportunity, it will stay hidden out of site. But the health effects won’t! Does your family have itchy eyes, watery noses, scratchy throat, persistent colds that just won’t go away? You might have “Hidden Mold” and may be in need of mold testing.

 

Months of health issues lead this family to hire a mold investigator who suspected water intrusion through cable penetrations.

Worried About Hidden Mold?

Hidden Mold can be a real problem if not addressed. As the mold grows it consumes the organic material around its weakening structures. As it grows it casts off spores that migrate throughout the home often contributing to ill health effects.

 

Water dripping in through an exterior wall went undetected for years until hidden mold growth was thought to be the cause of health effects.

Think You Have Hidden Mold?

I’m sure you checked all the obvious sources. But lets face it, this is where a pro comes in handy. A mold testing investigator is an expert at assessing your home to not only identify mold, but the possible sources of water intrusion that triggers mold growth. Some water sources are nothing more than a drip.

 

Behind the wall, several small holes from old cable lines were found to be the source of water intrusion triggering mold growth.

What Should I Do?

First don’t panic; this is more common than you think. Once the hidden mold is identified it can be remediated. But be prepared to spend a few $’s for mold testing. It may take several tests and a few site visits to track down that sneaky hidden mold.
