How to Find Areas Where Mold Grows
Mold grows in areas that are dark, damp or wet. This is because moisture is the ideal breeding ground for mold to grow. To find, control and prevent mold, you will need to first identify any areas in your home that are susceptible to these conditions. Areas such as showers, bathtubs, toilets, kitchen sinks, inside cabinets, or around appliances are some of the first areas to check for mold or moisture. If you notice excess moisture or condensation in any of these areas you should wipe and dry the area completely. Making this part of your cleaning routine will help to prevent any future growth of mold. You can also reduce the moisture in certain rooms like the bathroom by ensuring the ventilation and bathroom fan is working efficiently to remove humidity.

What Are Some of the Harmful Health Effects of Mold?
There are different types of mold and some are more dangerous than others. But all molds should be treated as dangerous and eliminated. Black mold is considered very dangerous and can lead to major respiratory problems. The elderly and babies are particularly susceptible to health hazards caused by mold. Even pets suffer from the health hazards of mold. People with chronic respiratory conditions or those with weaker immune systems are extremely vulnerable. Here are some of the symptoms that would indicate you have a mold problem, even if you can’t see or smell it.
- Skin or eye irritation/blurred vision/tearing eyes
- Allergic reactions/skin rashes
- Migraines/headaches and joint pain
- Sinus congestion/asthma like symptoms/hacking cough
- General fatigue or feeling of weakness
- A metal taste in your mouth
- Body temperature swings
- Feeling disoriented or a feeling of memory loss
- Abdominal pain/bloating/diarrhea
Why You Should be Concerned About Mold
Mold can grow at a fast and rapid pace in a few short days after water damage occurs. When you can see signs of mold or smell the odor of mold you are dealing potentially with millions of mold spores. The negative effects of mold to the structure of your home are bad, but the health hazards associated with mold in your home or business are far more dangerous.
If you’ve experienced water damage of any kind, trying to deal with the aftermath by yourself may not be enough to avoid the harmful effects of mold growth. What would be a simple clean up job today could evolve in to a significant mold or structural problem in the months ahead if not identified and treated properly. DIY kits are not enough and are not as accurate as testing done by professionals. If you see some indication of mold it’s highly likely that there is mold in your property that you can’t see. And that’s why you need a professional.
