Dealing With a Mold Problem: What Steps To Take

corner-of-room-with-mold-and-mildewHave you ever seen mold on your food and still wanted to eat it? It’s safe to say that the answer is a hard, “No!” The same mindset likely applies to discovering mold in your home. Mold growth in your home isn’t just unpleasant to see, but it can also be a health hazard.

If you discover there is mold in your home (it happens often in our area) then it is best to reach out to a professional for mold removal in West Palm Beach, FL.

Step 1. Know The Signs You Have Mold

First things first, if you are booking mold removal then you’ll want to make sure that you are doing so for a reason. Here are the warning signs to check for so you know it is time to reach out.

  • You can smell a pungent, earthy smell: One of the signs that are often most apparent to homeowners is the smell of mold. This is a somewhat pungent scent that can be described as unpleasantly earthy or musty. Even if you don’t see the cause of the smell, it may be worthwhile to have a professional check things out if you notice this.
  • Increased respiratory issues: Many types of mold will release spores that irritate a person’s eyes, nose, and respiratory system. If you’ve noticed that you or others in your home are having trouble with itchy, watery eyes or a sore throat on a nearly consistent basis, it may be due to mold growth.
  • You see black or green mold growth: If you can smell mold, chances are that in many cases you’ll be able to see it too. This can be mold growth in darker corners of the room or hall or even near a window. Look for those speckles or green or black in the home in areas that encounter extra moisture and less light.
  • You have bubbling ceilings, peeling walls, or other signs of water damage: Where there is water damage, there is more often also mold or mildew growth. Bubbling in the paint on your ceiling, or peeling paint on your walls can all be indicators that moisture and water damage are taking their toll on your home and more than likely creating an environment for mold to thrive in.
