Is it mold?

3/21/2020 (Permalink)

As it starts to warm up outside we get calls from people who have a concern they have mold in their crawl space, asking us for an estimate to remediate or clean the area. In some cases it is not necessary, because, what the home owner is actually seeing is either, camel cricket poop or hardened wood tar or both.

It looks just like mold but it's not. How can you tell?

Try rubbing the surface with your finger to determine if the spot is hard or soft and dusty. If it's hard, it's probably cricket poop or wood tar. If you are still not certain, give SERVPRO of Johnston County a call, we would be happy to come out. We can schedule a time to have our estimator come out to inspect and provide you with an estimate.
