How To Tell if There is Mold in Your Home

Having mold in homes is quite common and, although not always dangerous, it can signal that somewhere is leaking or water is not draining properly in your home. Sadly, the danger arises in the fact that it can cause structural damage to the house, and when untreated for a long time, can negatively impact the lives of the people living around it. Molds are very visible and have a musty and dusty-like smell. But if you are unsure it is mold, below this post, we will be showing you how you can tell if you have mold in your home. 

Musty or Damp Smells

This is usually common, especially when you lock the windows of such a room or house for a few hours. Thus, where you notice that your home has a musty, dusty, or damp uncommon smell, it may most very strongly be the presence of molds.  

The Sight of mold spores or the color of a particular spot changing

This is one of the most obvious ways to determine the presence of mold in your house. You should know that trying to clean off or scrub the visible mold with soap and water will not help issues. Usually, the experience of an expert will be needed to examine where the leaks are from so that further action may be taken towards correction.

Unusual Nosebleeds

While you may having regular or periodic nosebleeds or sneezing, however, if you discover that it is unusual or the rate has increased, which makes you sick and uncomfortable, you may need to visit the doctor to then confirm what exactly the issue is. If he rules out possible causes, you may want to check for molds in your house

Symptoms such as Cold or Flu

If you are having cold or frequent flu-like symptoms, you may need to check for the presence of molds in your room. It is only sad that molds may be present but not visible until after some time. However, changing such a room after some time may assist in preserving your health.

Condensation and persistent moisture

Usually, where a room is moist or damp, there is a temperature usually accompanied by it. The best way to follow a room’s temperature is to keep eyes on the key areas of the house, such as the bathroom or edges of it, as they are the perfect breeding ground for fungus growth. All of the human senses can then be used in identification, particularly sight and smell.
