Signs of Mold in Your Home

Is there mold in your home? Here’s how you can know.

If you’re a homeowner, you need to worry about signs of mold in your home. While mold inhabits everything around us, certain types of mold can be hazardous to your health and incredibly dangerous to live with. That’s why North Arundel Contracting performs mold remediation to combat mold within a residential home. While mold often forms due to an overgrowth of fungi in a damp environment, not all molds are created equal. Certain types of molds can invoke breathing problems, allergies, and illnesses depending upon your long-term exposure. If you’re searching for signs of mold in your home, read on. 

Signs of Mold: Damp Smells in Your House

Have you ever gone down into your basement and smelled something that was damp and musty? That might be a sign of growing mold inhabiting your home. Mold often takes on a damp, musty odor that most people correlate with the smell of a basement. However, basements aren’t meant to be musty! Any musty smells should be checked out by North Arundel Contracting through a comprehensive Air Quality Assessment to determine if you have higher than normal levels of mold in your home.

Peeling Wallpaper

Did you know that peeling wallpaper can also be an indication of a mold problem? Since mold thrives in humid environments, peeling wallpaper can indicate that enough humidity has caused the wallpaper to begin to peel back. Since mold can grow underneath wallpaper if moisture has gotten behind it, it’s important to hire the experts at North Arundel Contracting to determine if you need mold remediation services.

Condensation That Appears on Pipes

Anywhere there’s moisture, there’s a good chance that mold will grow. If you see signs of condensation on pipes in your home, on miscellaneous windows, or anywhere throughout your house, it could indicate that there’s mold growing within your home. Mold doesn’t belong in homes, and it’s important to keep an eye on any sign of any growth and nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand. If you feel like you have an area in your home that needs to have an assessment for mold, contact North Arundel Contracting today.
