Mold- like any other hazardous material can potentially be dangerous if not handled properly. A minor mold problem can quickly become a major infestation if left untreated. Being aware of these signs of mold growth can significantly lessen the damage of the mold and reduce remediation cost:

  • Smell - Outdoor mold can smell stale, but indoor mold often smells musty and damp.
  • Past Flooding - Flooding that left materials, such as drywall, wet for more than 24 hours can cause mold growth.
  • Humidity - High humidity can lead to condensation and water accumulation.  Humidity levels above 45% can cause mold growth.
  • Water leaks - If a leak is undetected for a long time, it is very likely to cause mold growth.
  • Blocked gutters - Blocked gutters can be a sign of indoor moisture problems, because the water can seep into the walls or the foundation.
  • Poor ventilation - Ventilation helps to dry out moisture. A lack of ventilation allows moisture to remain much longer.
  • Dust - A dirty or dusty home is more likely to have mold. Mold grows on dust. Dust can also transport mold spores around the home.
