As a homeowner, you begin to develop an extra sense about your home. You might not be able to put your finger on it, but something definitely seems off. With the help of your senses, and a few extra tools, you can detect the culprit: mold. When you need mold removal in Wayne, NJ, contact ServiceMaster Metropolitan. We’ve got the tools to detect every colony, remediate it fully and return your home to health.

There are a few methods of mold detection in your home. We’ll start with the easiest and readily accessible tool.

Your Nose
Mold is accompanied by a musty, stale smell. If indoors starts to smell suspiciously like wet earth, graduate to using your eyes to check dark, damp places for thriving mold colonies. Additionally, if your nose begins to run more often, like a never-ending allergy season, this is another strong hint there are mold and spores lingering in your home.

Moisture Probe
Many professionals use a moisture probe, or moisture meter, to detect the presence of mold behind walls and/or other materials. A small probe can be inserted into the material or pressed directly against its surface to detect mold. This device is typically used with carpets, walls, bricks, and concrete. Mold usually grows where moisture is high, and a moisture probe can check the areas that are hidden to the eyes and nose.

Using Personal Protective Equipment
During detection and removal of mold, it’s important to keep your health in mind. Respirators are a great idea to keep mold spores from irritating your lungs and causing flu-like symptoms.

Of course, your eyes are the most useful tool when it comes to mold detection. If you see a colony, there’s no need for testing. You’ve got mold in your home and you need to get rid of it as soon as possible.
