How to spot mold growth in your home
Because of the microscopic nature of mold spores, it can be hard to tell if you have mold growth in your home. Some of the easiest ways to spot signs of mold growth can be a moldy smell or visible mold growth on walls and floors. Take a look at some of the signs below to see if your home has mold growth.
1. Smelling Mold
When you have mold growth in your home, but it is not easily visible, often a moldy smell might be the only clue that it is there. Don’t ignore mold odors if you can’t see any mold. You should thoroughly inspect your home before your mold problems get any worse.
2. Allergy Symptoms From Mold
If you have mold in your home then you may have symptoms that are similar to allergies. Common allergic reactions to mold can include sneezing, sore eyes, and a runny nose or nasal congestion.
3. Visible Mold Growth
The term visible mold growth might seem like it can be an easy indicator of mold growth, but often times it is not. Many people don’t notice small amounts of mold growth and often assume that it is just dirt or soot. Sometimes people can simply ignore visible mold in their house. If you can see mold growth, even it is just a small amount, you should take action immediately. Mold particles are microscopic in size and if there is visible mold in your home, then you have a much larger issue than you may think.
