What You Need to Know About Mold in the Spring

Cape Cod residents finally begin to enjoy longer daylight, warmer days and the fast-approaching arrival of spring. On the contrary, the increasing temperatures and humidity levels may also reveal a hidden mold issue or worsen the existing problem exponentially. Over the months, the walls and foundation of your building were accumulating moisture from the ocean and several snowstorms. As the building structures start warming up after a long winter, some areas might become a fostering home to mold spores, originated throughout the winter.

Avoid facilitating conditions that might be conducive to mold growth. Here are some warning signs you should watch out for when inspecting your home for mold this spring:

  • Strong, musty odors in the areas like an attic, basement, etc.
  • Visual signs of accumulating green, white, grey or darker mold spores on various surfaces, especially drywalls, wallpapers, wood studs and other organic building materials.
  • Allergic/cold symptoms experienced by the contaminated building’s occupants, including a runny nose, cough, itchy eyes, headaches and more.
  • Dampness and high indoor humidity, noticeable condensate on the window glass and sills.
  • Poor air circulation and indoor ventilation.
