The Mold You Don’t See
When people hear mold, they may think of that slimy stuff on a shower curtain or that green fuzz on an old piece of bread. But the reality is that there are thousands of types of mold, and if it colonizes in your home or business, it may not be easily seen. It may grow in hard-to-see places or places where you’ve had a water leak.

If You Suspect Mold
Even though mold may appear in places that are hard to find, there are ways to tell if you have an issue. The biggest tell you may have a problem with your residential or commercial property is a consistent must smell with no known origin. Another red flag that you could have mold is if you have had a water leak that was not discovered quickly or not dried properly. If either of things is present, having SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville come out to your home or business for a no-cost assessment is critical in finding and correcting the issue as quickly as possible.
