Contact us today if you think you might have mold growth at your property.
Where Does Mold Come From?
Mold is sneaky in that it can grow in a building’s hidden spots, like the walls, floors, and insulation. Mold typically starts to grow after a building has experienced some sort of water damage. This could be from a flood, leak, or water being used to put out a fire. In these situations, the moisture allows microscopic mold spores to begin to grow and spread, often unbeknownst to the owners.
Signs of Mold
Sometimes mold in a home or business will be visible and obvious. Other times it is hidden. Here are some common signs of mold growth:
- Musty odor
- Visible mold growth
- Signs of water damage
- Symptoms of mold allergies (ex: coughing, sore throat, itchy eyes and skin)
- Peeling wallpaper
- Dark-colored spots on walls
Look out for these signs of mold in the building. Also, if you know of water damage that occurred in the past, be aware that the chances of mold growth are a lot higher. Another thing to keep in mind is that mold does not just stay in one place. If you had a flooded basement, there is a good chance the spores are traveling through your home via the air vents.
