Mold Inspection Baltimore: Where does Mold like to hide?

Where does Mold like to hide?”

As a business owner or homeowner, have you ever asked yourself that very question? If so, you are not alone. As mold removal and remediation specialists, we hear it all the time. And it is a valid question. Where does mold like to hide?

The Answer: Anywhere and everywhere if the conditions are right.

Molds are tiny microorganisms, ranging in size from 1 – 20 microns. Because of this, mold can and is just about anywhere, from on or behind drywall to under carpets to on metal or glass surfaces. As long as the environment is warm, dark, and moist, mold will find a way to grow.

Taking care of any mold infestation is important. Some molds produce toxins, which can cause adverse health effects, such as allergies, respiratory ailments and other illnesses. Black molds, which produce mycotoxins, are very poisonous to the body. Other types of mold are relatively harmless.

Do you know what type of mold you have?

If you suspect you have mold, you need to call Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, your Baltimore mold inspector.

Mold Inspection Baltimore: Why is Mold growing in my Home?

“Why is mold growing in my home?”

As a Baltimore mold remediation company, we have heard this question time and time again. Well, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Too much moisture in a home can lead to mold, mildew, and other biological growth.” And it does not take long for mold to spread.

Tiny mold spores, ranging in size from 1 – 20 microns, are easily carried by air currents and other means, like clothing, pets, shoes, bags, etc., spreading throughout your home. Then, when these spores land in places with favorable conditions, with sufficient moisture and humidity, you will see additional mold growth.

Not only is mold an eyesore, but too much mold “can lead to a variety of health effects ranging from more common allergic reactions, to asthma attacks, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis,” according to the EPA. This is why it is so important to deal with mold when the first warning signs are present.

Warning Signs of Mold

  1. Visible mold growth. And where there is a little visible mold, there is sure to be mold elsewhere in your home, as well.
  2. Musty smell. Sometimes, mold is not visible. It will, however, give off a very distinct musty smell.
  3. Excess moisture. As a general rule of thumb, excess moisture tends to lead to mold growth.
  4. Unexplained illness. If you or a loved one begin suffering from an unexplained illness, mold could be the cause.

If you notice any of the above warning signs of mold, call your local mold inspector right away.
