Is My Home at Risk for Mold?

Mold isn’t something to take lightly. Not only can it cause issues within your home, but it also can cause health problems that range from itching eyes and coughing to more serious allergic reactions, and even permanent lung damage. Although it may seem like it’s easy to detect, mold could be hiding in areas you may not be aware of. It is important to know whether or not your home is at risk, and if so, where it can be found.

It is crucial to be aware of the indications of mold and where to look. Mold needs moisture, oxygen, and an area to grow. With this being said, homes that have significant humidity levels tend to be prone to mold growth. Enclosed damp areas are also more susceptible to mold spores. They can even be found in your heating system. This is especially alarming, as the system circulates air through your home, the mold spores are being spread, which may result in health issues if not resolved.

Mold is also commonly found in areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. It is a good idea to check under sinks and around showers/tubs. These areas are more prone because they are often associated with water leaks. Running your fan or keeping the door open can also help prevent excessive moisture in your bathroom. It is also recommended to check behind your oven or under your refrigerator as these are spots where food is easily dropped. If you encounter a musty odor or odd-looking spots in your home, specifically in the rooms discussed above, it may be best to reach out to professionals to analyze the area.
