Here at Turners Underseal, we believe that you deserve to be comfortable in your home, and it’s hard to do that when you have a mold problem. Unfortunately, mold infestations are often difficult to notice until they have become severe, and many homeowners find themselves having to deal with extensive removal efforts in order to make sure that their homes are safe once more. Our team has extensive experience with mold testing and removal, and we want to help you avoid this kind of situation. In this article, we’ll go over three signs that you may have a mold problem in order to help you catch it in its early stages and prevent further harm to your home.
- Condensation and Moisture- One of the surest indicators that you have a mold problem (or will have one in the future) is excessive condensation and moisture in your home. Mold thrives in these damp conditions, so one of the most effective ways to prevent it from taking root is to take steps to correct any moisture issues you may have. One way that our team can help with that is by thoroughly de-humidifying your crawlspace, which is an area that is highly susceptible to these types of issues.
- Musty Odors- Another sign that you have a mold problem is unpleasant odors. Mold spores produce a stale, musty smell that is subtle at first, but will only get worse as the mold colony grows and multiplies. If part of your home starts to smell musty, we encourage you to give us a call to arrange for an inspection.
- Health Symptoms- A third indicator that you may have a mold problem is the development of personal respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, a runny nose, as well as other symptoms such as water eyes, dizziness, or even headaches. If you or someone in your household has started to experience these symptoms on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to get your house checked for mold.
