Signs You Have Mold in Your Idaho Home
Mold is known as the silent killer for a reason. If you’re like most people, then you have a difficult time determining when and where mold growth occurs—if you notice at all. More often than not, you’ll likely experience physical symptoms of mold growth long before you’re able to locate mold spores on your own.
Fortunately, we’ve gathered the most common causes of mold growth. If you have high amounts of mold in your home, you’ll likely notice one or more of the following:
- Rotten, musty smells
- Contaminated carpets
- Leaky water heater
- Allergy and asthma flare-ups
- Warped walls
- Lingering cough
- Spores on tiles
Physical Symptoms of Mold Exposure
It’s important to note: mold impacts each person differently. You may experience one of the following, or none at all. Either way, try not to ignore any of the symptoms listed below:
Shortness of breath
Dry, flaky skin
Itchy eyes and throat
What Causes Mold Growth?
When it comes down to it, mold growth activates when warm conditions meet moist environments. Lingering water— be it from a roof leak, burst plumbing, or lack of ventilation—is the beginning of all mold-related issues.
Mold utilizes spores to spread and reproduce. When a mold spore travels through the air and lands in humid environments, spores begin to flower, thus creating mold.
Luckily, the licensed professionals at Complete & Total Restoration will identify and completely irradicate mold and all lingering spores. Our specialists work hard to ensure your home or business remains a healthy and safe place.
Where Does Mold Grow?
Mold can grow on nearly any surface!
More specifically, mold gravitates towards organic materials like wood, paper products, drywall, carpet, insulation, and even water. To prevent excess moisture from dampening your floors and walls, control the amount of moisture in high humidity areas. This includes, but isn’t limited to bathrooms, showers, attics, and crawlspaces.
