Warning Signs Your Home Might Have Mold Damage

Are you concerned that your home has mold?

There's nothing worse than seeing mold has taken a grip on your house. But mold isn't always easy to spot and can be hidden from view. But don't worry as there are warning signs you can learn to spot mold before it becomes a major problem.

There are signs of mold damage so you can stop it in its tracks.

Stale Odors

A telltale sign of mold is the stale, unpleasant odor it releases. You may not actually be able to see it, but you'll likely always smell it.

If your house has a constant unpleasant odor which you can't get rid of, it's not necessarily your teenager's feet. Before you insist they take more showers, go round and do a full inspection of your home. Be sure to look in hidden places such as behind wardrobes and under sinks.

If you find mold be careful not to touch it and cover it up if you can. We then advise you to call in professionals to remove it properly.

Spots or Fur on the Walls

Mold can appear in a variety of ways but it's common to show up as spots or fur. It usually builds up in moist, damp areas such as windows and bathrooms so check these areas first.

Once you have checked these areas then focus on hard-to-reach places such as air vents.

Paint, wallpaper, and other surfaces can become discolored over time, so it won't always be mold. However, if you're unsure then you can buy testing kits or just call professionals in to clarify.

If you suspect you have mold damage in your home, contact us to find out how we can help remove it safely.
