Where to Look for Mold in Your Home

With all of the monsoons this season brings, it’s easy to spring a leak in your home. These warm, damp areas can lead to an infestation of mold. Mold is a type of fungus that is formed from tiny spores and can be quite damaging to your residence. Knowing where to look for mold can help save you a lot of money and headaches when it comes to home restoration.

Mold is commonly found in areas where there’s moisture. It can grow in your humidifiers, window seals, and HVAC systems. Taking a look in your kitchen, underneath sinks, and in your bathrooms is also a good idea. This pesky problem can sneak in to your walls and lurk beneath certain surfaces as well.

There are many ways you can search for mold. Since it sometimes grows in areas that are impossible to inspect, you may have to use other methods of seeking it out. Mold can have a distinct odor and can cause severe allergy symptoms, so if you smell it, it’s probably there. If you want to be sure, you can purchase an at home test kit, online or in stores - usually for less than $40.

If you think there is mold in your home, get it inspected by a professional as soon as possible to avoid further damage and issues. American Restoration can determine if there is in fact mold and resolve the problem for you! Call us today for more information!
