October 28, 2020

You’re suddenly sneezing when your seasonal allergies aren’t acting up, there’s a musty smell in the air and there might be a spot of mildew in your shower. What are all of these signs telling you? There might be a mold problem in your home. Catching mold early is essential to successful remediation, so keep your eyes peeled for these signs of mold in your home.

The Warning Signs of Mold in Your Home

  1. Allergy-like symptoms including sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose or persistent congestion
  2. Cold or flu-like symptoms that improve when you are not at home
  3. A musty scent that lingers in your home
  4. Visible mildew growth, regardless of what color it is and where it is located
  5. Water leaks, which often mean that there is mold growth near the site of the leak
  6. Visible water damage, which indicates that water lingered in an area and potentially allowed mold to take root
  7. Condensation on the inside of your windows that can indicate high humidity levels and a build-up of moisture
  8. Serious physical and neurological symptoms including difficulty concentrating, headaches, a short attention span, dizziness and memory loss
