Funny Smells???? Where Is That Coming From????
Here at SERVPRO of Anniston, Gadsden and Marshall County we get calls of all sorts. This year it seems more calls each week are about mold. When a call comes in we always like to inquire if the mold is visible. Some say yes. Others, however say that they noticed a musty or strange smell.
Odor is generally the first thing people will notice when it come to microbial growth. We had a call recently about mold in a crawlspace. The homeowner had noticed a strange smell. After some investigting, the homeowner found a large area of mold in the crawlspace from a pipe leaking under the house.
What does mold need to grow? Mold needs moisture. A water damage can quickly turn into a mold job if the water is left for even a few days. The high humidity this past summer was a large contributor to the larger number of calls we received about mold.
