How to know you have mold in your home and what to do?

Water damage can be a serious issue, however undealt water damage can lead to insidious problems – mold. As your trusted restoration service in Toronto, 5 Star Cleaning is here to guide you on recognizing the signs of mold in your home, especially after water-related emergencies. In this blog, we will delve into the importance of prompt action, the risks of untreated water damage, and why reaching out to our certified professionals is crucial.

Detecting Mold: The Unseen Culprit

Mold is a sneaky intruder that can hide in plain sight, often without visible indicators. However, certain signs may point to its presence:

Extra Moisture in the Basement: Persistent dampness in the basement is a breeding ground for mold.
Discoloration on Surfaces: Watch for yellow, brown, or black spots on drywall, flooring, or baseboards, especially in areas with a history of water damage.

Strong Odors: Mold often comes with musty, unpleasant odors that linger.

Previously Water-Damaged Areas: Places you thought were dry after water damage might still be harboring mold.

Why Act Fast? The Escalating Dangers of Mold

Ignoring these signs can lead to severe consequences. Mold doesn’t go away on its own; it continues to grow and spread, affecting more areas of your house. The longer you wait, the more extensive and expensive the mold remediation mold remediation becomes – up to 5-10 times more when mold worsens.

The Myth of Waterproof Floors

Even floors advertised as waterproof cannot withstand prolonged exposure to water damage.
When water penetrates beneath the surface, it becomes trapped under the under pad and floor, giving rise to strong odors and dangerous bacteria.
