How to Spot Signs of Mold
Fungi spores exist naturally in the air. This allows mold to form wherever and whenever the correct conditions occur. Ideally, this is in a warm, dark area which has a ready supply of food and moisture. Because the presence of water is vital for mold, signs of damp or water marks are a major indicator.
Black spots are another obvious sign to look out for. Typically this will consist of black or green spots covering a surface in your home. While an obvious sign, growth marks may be hidden in unsighted areas of your home. Therefore, one of the most telling signs of mold is the presence of a musty smell in the air.
There are also several health symptoms which can suggest mold is growing in your house, including:
- Respiratory problems
- Blocked, running or an itchy nose
- Watery and irritable eyes
- Tiredness and nausea
- Aggravated asthma conditions
If these symptoms are experienced by you and your family but appear eased when away from your home, you should search for visible signs of mold.
