Signs You Need to Have Your Home Inspected for Mold

Mold inspection might not be part of your regular home maintenance, after all, what are the odds that your house has mold, right? It turns out that mold tends to be hard to detect which is why people seem to overlook this potential problem. Although you don’t seem to see any visible signs of mold, it’s important to look at these signs and if you do notice these in your home, it’s time to call the experts:

1

Leaking

Leaking

Mold can grow on the inner layers of your walls and ceilings, especially if these areas have recently gone through leaks and flooding. If the water did not completely dry off, mold could start growing in these areas. It’s hard to spot them but you can look for signs like cracks on walls and ceilings as well as paint chipping off to determine if mold might be present.

Smells

Though hard to spot, mold will still be identifiable by its smell. If you start noticing that there are weird odors in your home, that could be a sign that there’s mold somewhere.

Another thing to look for is water damage in your home. If there are parts of your house that have recently been flooded or if some areas have been exposed to water, pay close attention to these areas because these places of high condensation are ideal breeding grounds for mold.

Your Body’s Response

Your Body’s Response

Do you notice your allergies worsening? It could be that your body is reacting to the mold present in your house. Monitor your body’s condition when at home and see if you feel better when you step outside and smell fresh air. If so, mold could likely be the cause.
