Don’t let harmful mold grow into a bigger problem than it has to in your home. Because mold can grow on virtually any surface, from wood to tile to carpeting to paper, it can seem as though nothing can stop it. However, if you know the warning signs of mold, you can head off the multitude of issues that it can cause in your home and family.
In order to help you catch mold from the start, Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems has listed the top warning signs you should be on the lookout for, starting with…
-Visible mold growth
If you see it, you better believe it. Mold will often appear either as a discoloration in the surface on which it is growing, or there will be a noticeable, fuzzy texture. A mold remediation company should be called as soon as visible mold is identified.
An unusual smell in our home can indicate many things: a gas leak, a spill, or garbage that needs to be removed. However a particularly musty odor could mean you’ve got mold; an expert can advise you as to whether or not it is.
Mold loves to grow in damp environments. If your home has recently gone through a flood or a burst pipe, the damage left by the water could foster a growth of mold.
Mold can cause an abundance of health problems, notably congestion, coughing, respiratory difficulty, sore throat, and skin irritation. If you or your family are experiencing any of these symptoms and cannot find an explanation, it could be because of mold.
Due to poor drainage or leaking, some areas in your home may appear wet after it rains. If you can identify many of these areas, mold might not be far behind. Mold experts, such as those at Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, should be contacted immediately.
