- Allergic symptoms
If you keep having problems with allergies every time you get home or to work, there is a probability that mold is growing somewhere in your property. Some common allergic reaction includes sore eyes, a runny nose, nasal congestion, and sneezing. Have you noticed that these allergic reactions get worse whenever you are at home or in the office but you feel better each time you go out? This is often caused by poor air quality, if that’s the case, you likely have mold.
- Strange odors
When the mold is growing in a hidden place, a moldy smell might be the best clue you will get. Never ignore mold smell even if you cannot see any mold. Furthermore, you need to inspect your property thoroughly before the mold problem worsens. You may follow the musty odor just to know where it’s strongest. Whether it is at an unreachable place or not consider contacting a professional mold removal service provider like us to help you get rid of the mold.
- Noticing signs of mold growth
In most cases, visible mold growth may look like an obvious mold sign but many people never notice small volumes of mold growth. Others just think that it is dirt or soot. Sometimes, people choose to ignore visible mold growth.
If you can spot mold growth no matter how small it is, you need to take action immediately. The mold patches may seem small but they can spread quickly. Moreover, the fact that you are noticing mold means that your home has the right conditions required for mold growth. When you don’t take action immediately, you will end up having a huge problem. Visible mold growth can also be a sign that your home has a large mold colony that’s growing in a hidden location.
Other times it might be difficult to notice mold in your home particularly if the mold is white in color. Mold can be black, gray-green, gray-brown or, white. Mold that grows behind wallpapers made using vinyl may appear purple, pink, or orange.
- Water problem signs
In case you have been dealing with moisture problem for a long time, it is inevitable that they will cause mold to grow. If you’re currently having water issues, consider checking for mold growth. Signs that you are facing a moisture problem include discoloration or water stains on floors, ceilings, and walls. When you see this, you should know that mold is growing behind or within the material.
Other signs that you have moisture problem is noticing surface abnormalities like bubbling, cracking or peeling of the wallpaper or paint. In case your walls are bulging, warped or bowed perhaps it means moisture has managed to get into them. The other clue is if the wall surface including other materials feels damp.
- Past flooding
Was your house flooded in the past, and you managed to get rid of the water by yourself? If so, there is a chance that mold is growing in your house. The mold may grow in places where the water remained for a long time, like in the basement. Floods often create mold growth behind walls or under floors, including other locations that are out of view.
- Water leaks
Water problems are caused by leaks. If you have a leaking pipe or ceiling, even if you do not notice signs of water damage, there is a chance that mold is growing in your home particularly around the area where the leak is.
Mold growth from leaks tends to be hidden. For instance, if a leak was hidden behind a wall or any other surface any mold growth will also be hidden behind the same surface. On the other hand, if the leak wasn’t hidden, it could still be growing behind the wall or surface from which the leakage seeped through.
Have you been noticing a lot of condensation in your Long Island property? This may be a sign that your home has high amounts of moisture and may have a mold issue. Condensation often occurs on surfaces like windows, metal pipes or glass. The mold may be growing at locations where the condensation is building up. If you have rusting window pipes then it means you have a lot of condensation at your home. Condensation also means that you are facing a humidity problem. High humidity levels easily feed mold and is another warning sign of mold problems.
