Does That Musty Smell Keep Coming Back In Your Saugerties Home?

10/1/2020 (Permalink)

Green, black and white fuzzy mold growth on a white interior wall. Mold can be a tricky tenant to evict from your home! SERVPRO of Kingston/New Paltz is always here to help!

Every time you walk in your kitchen, you get a whiff of that telltale musty, damp, organic smell of mold but you just can’t seem to find where it’s coming from. Maybe the pipe under the sink has a slow leak, maybe the refrigerator water line isn’t connected properly. There could even be a leak in the ceiling above from the bathroom. But how do you even begin to find it?

First things first, mold needs consistent moisture to start forming, so every attempt should be made to find the source of the leak or where the water could be coming from. Get a plumbing professional or other service pro as soon as possible to fix the problem as soon as you can. If you don’t have a professional take care of the source of leak, the mold will continue to thrive and create a more aggressive situation that is much harder to treat and can cause secondary damages to the structure of the home.

Additionally, and equally as important, call your insurance agent or company to see what your policy might cover for the repair and remediations.

When it comes to insurance coverage for mold remediation, there are all kinds of terms and restrictions and everyone’s situation is different. Ask your agent about your specific problem. The more info you have, the more you’re prepared for the next steps.

It’s important to have the remediation done by certified, trained experts to ensure its remediated properly. There’s a common misconception that bleach will kill mold, but that is false. While bleach might be able to address some growth on the surface, it can’t get to the bigger problem inside. There are plenty of products in the stores claiming to eliminate mold, but very few can actually do the trick.
