Signs of Mold

11/19/2018 (Permalink)

Finding mold in your home is scary. We like to think our home is safe – and it should be. Mold can easily grow within 24 to 48 hours and will begin to colonize in 1 to 12 days. There is a variety of mold growth signs that should not be ignored.

Signs of mold:

  • Odor - Mold on the outside of your house often smells stale, but mold on the inside smells musty and damp.
  • Visible Mold Growth - If you see mold then obviously you have mold. the question is "how much?" It’s the mold you CAN’T see that is often the scariest.
  • Water Leak - Current or previous leaks are often the indicator that mold is present. Leaky pipes or a leak in the roof often produce moisture in overlooked places.
  • Pasting Flooding - If your house has been in a flood there’s a good chance you will end up with a mold problem. To be at peace with continuing to live in your home, you should have a professional remediator test for mold.

These are common signs of mold that people tend to oversee.

If you come encounter with any of these signs, DO NOT HESITATE!
