Spring Mold Can Be Sneaky!

4/11/2018 (Permalink)

Spring is right around the corner, almost. As the winter snow comes to an end, it’s imperative that you check all corners of your house for mold. Mold can be difficult to spot and has the ability to grow quickly out of hand. If not taken care of immediately, mold spores may spread, causing nasal-related health issues. Here are a few common signs that may indicate you have mold growing in your home.

Musty Odor

Mold has a distinct smell that will often spread throughout the room. A musty odor may be an indication of mold growth in your house. Don’t ignore the smell. Instead, check all corners of the room to ensure you do not have mold.

Water Leaks

Water leaks can drip water in secluded places, making it difficult to fully track the damage of the leak. Water that remains untouched for 24-48 hours can result in mold growth. Be sure to check the location of the water leak and its perimeter in case of mold growth.

Condensation

Condensation can occur on surfaces such as glass or metal and has the potential to trigger mold growth. High humidity can feed mold, allowing it to grow rapidly. Check areas in your house that have high moisture and be sure to keep any condensation clean.

If you have an attic or basement, check for moisture regularly. Mold can grow in hidden places and must be checked before the damage gets out of control. Call your local SERVPRO if you are in need of a Mold Inspection.
