Tips on how to identify mold growing indoors and how Bio-One of St Paul can help you remediate your house or property

Cold weather, flooding, or damage caused by water leaks can result in excessive moisture, which is typically the root cause of mold growth inside properties. While it is true that mold doesn’t have the same health effects on everyone, it is also true that houses may be greatly affected by mold damage, especially if children and people living in it suffer from respiratory health conditions. 

Bio-One of St Paul’s certified technicians provide mold remediation services throughout the Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area and surrounding communities. When it comes to mold, promptly fixing water-related damage and controlling humidity levels are the main tasks to do to prevent mold growth and dissemination. Most of the time, mold damage is irreversible, so if you notice any of the following signs, do not hesitate to give our specialists a call.

Mold usually grows in humid, damp environments. It can grown beneath the floor, carpet, even behind counters.

Look for stains on walls, ceiling, and household furniture


It’s impossible to keep mold spores from coming inside the house, as they’re present in the outside environment to regulate and maintain a healthy ecosystem. Indoors, however, mold can become a serious concern for property owners, as it can grow on almost any surface: from wooden structures to drywalls and household furniture, mold can be hidden anywhere around the house, and all that it needs to grow is water and a suitable “damp” environment.


You can identify mold in walls and other furniture by looking for ring-shaped and multicolored stains. Decoloration marks on the walls are also a sign of possible mold damage. If the property has been impacted by flooding, chances are high mold can start to grow within 24 to 48 hours after the water has interacted with any of these surfaces.

Bio-One of St Paul’s specialists can help you identify the key areas where mold might be growing, and we are prepared to contain and remediate them in an effective, timely manner.

If you notice a strange, similar to wet clothing, the property may be facing mold damage


Mold has a very distinctive smell. It’s usually compared to a wet pair of socks or piled clothing… it’s like an earthy smell. When mold is concentrated indoors, it can create a dangerous environment for those struggling with medical conditions like asthma, pulmonary diseases, and allergies.  


Bio-One of St Paul’s specialists work with contractors to provide an honest service that guarantees a safe restoration from mold damage. Mold remediation usually entails tearing down and disposing of damaged structures, which is why it’s important to act promptly.
