Oklahoma Mold Damage Remediation
It happens more often than you would think. People buy a house, and then within the first few weeks or months, notice that it has a mold problem. How did it even pass the inspection? Well, because there are so many different types of mold, it can be hard to detect. And you would like to think that finding it is part of the inspection process in the first place. But that is not always the case. If there is not an immediate sign of mold, inspectors will not go looking for it. And a lot of sellers will intentionally conceal it.
How Do They Hide It?
The most common types of mold will stain surfaces. Sellers will paint over these stained surfaces. Once the colors match, it makes it easy to over look. In especially moist places, spores can hide in attics, basements, and drywall. These spores will wait for the proper conditions for them to grow and thrive. And spores are a lot harder to see than mold itself.
What You Can Do About Mold
There are going to be signs of mold and fungus growing in your house. To begin with, it has a very distinct smell. Mold emits CO2 gasses that produce a musty smell.
