Mold exists in every home within the greater Coral Springs area and beyond. However, some homes have significantly more mold than others. In particular, homes that have suffered water damage are likely to be laden with harmful mold. Mold is problematic for reasons beyond health. Mold generates odors that will make your living space quite uncomfortable. The challenge is pinpointing the location of the mold and removing it so it does not generate a nasty odor. Fail to have your mold problem addressed and the musty odor will soon emanate throughout the entirety of your home.
Why Mold in Coral Springs Carries a Nasty Odor
Mold is odorous as it generates gas referred to as microbial volatile organic compounds or MVOC for short. Such gasses usually have quite a harsh odor. MVOCs are not inherently harmful yet the mold that causes such gasses is a serious health threat to your health as well as the structural integrity of your Coral Springs home.
Finding the Mold
In some cases, you will be able to pinpoint some of the mold with your eyes. However, some mold is not visible to the naked eye. Furthermore, most mold is not out in the open of your Coral Springs living space. The mold must be removed in order to reduce its odor. Even if you remove the visible mold with a DIY (do it yourself) attempt, there is still a good chance the musty odor will still remain. If you still detect the presence of mold odor, there is likely additional mold in another part of your living space. The challenge lies in pinpointing the location of all the mold in your home and removing it in a comprehensive manner. Do not attempt to remove the mold and its accompanying odor on your own. The better solution is to rely on our mold removal team in Coral Springs for assistance.
