Signs You Might Have A Mold Problem

Mold can quickly go unnoticed for long periods. It often hides in spaces we don’t usually check, such as damp basements, under bathroom sinks, or behind dishwashers. As a result, many people won’t even realize they have a mold problem until it’s too late. Unfortunately, every home is susceptible to mold, often with no apparent signs. That’s why it’s crucial to start mold remediation as soon as possible.

Why Is Mold In My Home?

Because mold spreads through tiny spores, it can find its way inside easily. It can come in through an open window, on your clothing, on your pets, and through your crawl space. In fact, crawl space encapsulation is one of the best ways to prevent mold growth and the need for mold removal in your home. All it takes is a damp environment, and mold can quickly take over your home.

Look out for signs of mold damage, including:

  • Water damage or flooding
  • High indoor humidity
  • Musty or damp smells
  • Visible mold spots

Mold Pro Tip:

Mold is detrimental to your property, your belongings, and your business. Once it takes root, it is difficult to remove without professional equipment and training. Contrary to common belief, bleach does not kill mold. While mainstream bleach companies want you to believe this to be true, the reality is while bleach is a powerful disinfectant, it won’t kill mold. As a result, health-focused government agencies such as the (EPA) Environmental Protection Agency and the (OSHA) Occupational Safety and Health Administration no longer recommend using bleach to kill mold.

Mold grows long arms (mycelia and hyphae) penetrating porous surfaces, such as drywall or hardwood floors. Bleach will make a surface appear clean while the mold grows deep in the pores. Instead of killing the mold, the bleach will provide a damp environment for the mold to feed off of and grow stronger.

Finally, insurance companies often won’t pay for mold damages once someone pours bleach on the mold. This is due to the secondary damages usually caused by pouring corrosive bleach on a surface.

Several signs of a mold problem are:

  • You see visible mold on surfaces
  • A strong, earthy, or musty odor
  • Evidence of past moisture problems that could lead to undetected mold growth, i.e., watermarks on drywall or lifting linoleum in the bathroom
  • Water damage, such as a flood, leak, or storm

Pay special attention to the following circumstances:

  • Dark spaces with excessive humidity, i.e., under bathroom sinks or behind laundry machines in the basement
  • Areas with poor ventilation
  • Naturally humid environments (like Alabama!)

Remember that if you see a seemingly small patch of mold, that is often just the tip of the mold iceberg. Visible mold is usually the last sign of mold in your home, meaning that there is a considerable growth of mold you can’t see. Therefore, contacting a certified mold remediation company, like Klean-Co, is essential at the first sign of mold. Klean-Co experts will identify and find hidden mold, ensuring it is completely removed.

Mold Health Implications

Mold damages not only your property and belongings but also your and your family’s health! As mold spores grow, they produce irritants, allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). The scary thing about mold is not everyone is susceptible to its health effects. In some people, mold will cause obvious health problems, and in others, none at all.

In otherwise healthy people, indoor mold exposure can cause:

  • Upper respiratory tract symptoms
  • Coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Sneezing
  • Runny noses
  • Itching
  • Skin rashes (dermatitis)
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue

For individuals sensitive to mold or who have asthma, mold exposure can trigger asthma attacks and other asthma symptoms.

Mold can also trigger bouts of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (an uncommon immune system disorder that affects your lungs) for individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition.

In addition, certain types of molds, such as Stachybotrys and Aspergillus, will produce mycotoxins under certain conditions. These toxins can cause severe illnesses in humans and pets.

Symptoms might include:

  • Nausea
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Bleeding in the nose and lungs
  • Vomiting

Finally, repeated exposure to mold might increase your sensitivity, causing more severe allergic reactions in the future.
