Mold is caused by excess moisture in an area, whether that be your house itself or the items inside your home! The removal of mold is usually very time consuming and expensive!

What To Do If You Suspect Mold

A great place to start if you believe you might have mold in your home, is to call SERVPRO of St. Joseph! We do mold remediation! Mold can not only affect the structural property but also the items within a home so be sure to check thoroughly.


Mold can be prevented if there is proper moisture control in the area. The best plan for you as a homeowner though, is to get to the source before mold begins to appear! If you do not properly know how to clean up water damage, fix leaks, or other related water problems, call an expert! If water is not fully removed from surfaces or items, the chance that mold will grow rises.

Health Risks

According to the center for disease control and prevention, “Exposure to damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects, or none at all.” Depending if you or your household members are sensitive to mold, it may cause problems! Check out the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Website for more information about mold, how to prevent it, how it arrises, how to remove it, and how it can affect your health!
