Discovering that you have mold in your home can be overwhelming. But, before you panic – it’s important to realize that mold can be remediated and removed. Many people actually live in a home with mold and never realize it is there. It’s important to be aware of what the signs are that you may be sharing your home with more than just your family. Signs that you may have mold include:
1. A strange odor – Mold has a pungent smell. When it is confined to one area of your home, you may notice an unpleasant odor when you are in that area. Mold can sometimes live within the walls or behind wallpaper, and so you might not immediately associate the smell with mold.
2. Health symptoms – because mold is not always visible, it can be difficult realizing that you do indeed have a mold problem. If you feel listless, congested and experience watering eyes while in your home, these can all be signs of the presence of mold.
3. The appearance of mold – In your shower stall or bathtub, it’s easy to distinguish normal soap scum from mold. However, in the basement or cellar you may have to investigate a little further to find the mold. Mold will take hold of damp areas, so if you have a wall or floor where dampness collects, mold could very well be there as well.
