Mold Problems Are Not Always Visible

by | Dec 15, 2022 | General, Restoration

Mold can be a serious problem when it comes to the environmental quality in your home, and while many people usually think of visible spots on walls and other surfaces as a sign that they have a mold problem, visible mold growth is not the only indicator that you have mold in your home. If you have are concerned that you have a mold problem, contact Supreme Services to learn more about mold removal in Windsor and Essex County.

Ways that you know you could have a mold problem in your home include:

Musty Smell

A consistent musty smell in certain areas of your home could indicate that the area has been exposed to high levels of moisture, and that there could be mold growing. Not all varieties of mold produce a smell, but many do.

Signs of Previous Water Damage

While you may not see mold, if there are indicators of past water damage in your basement or other areas in your home, this can be an indicator of mold that you can’t see. Signs of past basement flooding or other water damage can include discoloration, water stains, or bubbling, cracking, or peeling paint.

Visible Moisture

If you can see moisture gathering in one place in your home, including in your basement, this can be a sign that there’s enough moisture to lead to mold growth, even if you don’t see any mold growth yet.

New or Worsening Respiratory Issues

Mold can lead to new respiratory problems or aggravate existing ones. If members of your household start to experience consistent coughing, sneezing, sore or itchy throat, congestion, headaches, difficulty breathing, skin irritation or other reactions, this could indicate mold spores in the air.
