Mold isn’t just dirty and unsightly; it’s also an enormous hazard to your health. Mold grows where the fungus can feed off of humidity in the air and flourishes in a dark space. Keep an eye out for some of these common symptoms to find out if you need to eradicate mold from your home.
Excessive Moisture or Leaking
If you are aware that your home has been having problems with moisture, but you haven't been on the lookout for mold, start looking immediately! Have you noticed any wall abnormalities like cracking walls, peeling paint, or bubbling underneath the paint or wallpaper? All of those signs can be the first indication of a moisture problem or leakage.
If you or your family members are having uncommon allergy symptoms and you can’t figure out why, it’s possible that you have mold growing somewhere in your home. Keep careful track of how you feel after spending some time in your home versus when you leave.
Obvious Mold Growth
It might seem strange that many people smell mold growing and have horrible allergies, but they think that the dark spots growing on their walls are just caused by dirt. Mold is a pest that can quickly evolve from a small nuisance into a major issue. If you suspect you have a mold problem, get rid of it as quickly as possible to keep it from taking over your home.
Mold is often accompanied by a stuffy, musty smell that makes you feel uncomfortable. It’s a recognizable smell that you’ll definitely recognize, even if you’ve never smelled mold before – it’s that obvious!
