How to Know You Have a Mold Problem

We advised you on preventing and removing mold, now how to detect it. If you notice any of the following, perform a mold test and consult a professional.

Allergic Reactions

Sneezing, sore eyes, runny nose and nasal congestion are common allergic symptoms of mold. Do you experience these symptoms while at home, but feel better when you leave? You may have a mold problem.

Ewww, That Smell!

Sometimes, the smell of mold is the only clue that it is there. Do not ignore a moldy odor. Test your home before it spreads.

Tiny Dots

Mold is very difficult to see and is often confused for dirt or soot. Visible mold is likely a sign of a much more serious problem. Should you see small specks, run a test and contact a professional immediately. The longer you wait, the more serious it will be.

Water Damage

Mold grows in humidity and moisture, so tell-tale signs of mold are water damage, leaks, or condensation. If you have water stains or discoloration on the walls, floors, or ceilings, check for mold. Other signs are peeling or bubbling of pain or wallpaper or if the surface of the wall feels damp. Check around any water leaks as well. Mold around leaks is often concealed, so be sure to run a thorough test. Look for condensation on windows or other glass. These are signs of high humidity in your home, a ripe place for mold to grow.

Toxic Mold

Some mold can be poisonous, so if you experience headaches, dizziness, short attention span, or difficulty concentrating while at home, consult a professional immediately.
