Mold: those damp, fuzzy looking spots that you occasionally find on a piece of bread or some old leftovers in the fridge. Mold likes more than just food, however. If there is moisture, mold can begin growing anywhere—up walls, in carpet, even on the ceiling.
It’s as if mold is always waiting for that one opportunity to ruin your home. You can see it grow up your walls, or it can hide behind drywall, in attics, or under carpets. Mold damages the material it lives on, impairing structural integrity and creating a dangerous environment.
Not only can mold ruin your home, it can ruin your health. Maybe, you haven’t even seen mold growing anywhere. Then suddenly you are wheezing, persistently coughing, and showing signs of an allergic reaction. Don’t ignore these signs! They are common symptoms of mold and it is due to the fact that mold is ruining the air quality. Mold creates tiny little spores that fly into the air that you inevitably breathe in, sticking to your lungs and causing respiratory issues.
Signs That You May Need a Mold Inspection
- You are experiencing allergic symptoms, such as scratchy throat, runny nose, headaches and aren’t sure why
- You smell a musty odor but don’t see any obvious mold
- There have been plumbing leaks or water issues in your home or office
- You think you see mold but are not quite sure if it is mold
