Mold is present everywhere in nature, but when it finds its way into your home it can be a major problem.
Do you know the warning signs of a mold outbreak in your home? Do you know how to detect a mold outbreak? Do you know what to look for (or smell for) when searching for a mold outbreak in your home?
If not, you’re not alone. Most homeowners do not know how to inspect their homes for molds. Fortunately for you, we at ServiceMaster of Baltimore do!
The Warning Signs of Mold
- Odor: Before you ever see a mold outbreak, you may be able to smell it! Most molds have a strong musty odor.
- Visible Signs: Mold can look white, gray, black, brown, yellow or greenish and may appear cottony, velvety, granular, leathery or glassy. Furthermore, mold can grow almost anywhere, including ceilings, inside walls, under carpeting, in the basement, along windowsills and in bathroom, etc. And there are different types of mold. Some are toxic and some are not. So it is important to exercise caution around mold, especially if you cannot differentiate between the different types of mold.
- Health Issues: Larger mold outbreaks have been known to cause frequent nasal congestion, watery or itchy eyes, lethargy, and much more. If you or a family member are suffering these symptoms at home, but often feel better in other environments, you may have mold.
