Mold spores can be found in nearly every home in the country. As a result, any home that experiences water damage could also be at risk for mold growth. There are several clues that you can use to determine if your home is a serious risk for mold damage. Call water and mold remediation specialists if you spot any of the following symptoms.
• Discolored Walls: Mold damage can cause noticeable discoloration in your walls, floors, and ceilings. Keep an eye out for dark splotches and contact a water damage professional immediately if you find any. A mold specialist has the resources and know-how necessary to remove the ugly discoloration for good. In addition, speedy repair will prevent the ugly discolorations from spreading across your home. Call your nearby mold specialist if you have questions about mysterious dark spots in your home.
• Health Clues: Mold sickness is a sure sign of moisture and mold damage. Contact an experienced mold specialist such as Fentress Builders if you notice any of the common mold sickness symptoms. Mold sickness starts with symptoms resembling that of a cold. However, it quickly progresses to loss of weight, memory loss, and rashes. Mold is likely present if these symptoms occur just after water damage occurs at home.
• Unventilated Attics: Mold growth can begin with a very small supply of moisture. In fact, even a room with very high humidity contains enough moisture to start mold growth. That’s why proper attic ventilation is so important. A regular circulation of dry air will prevent attic mold spores form getting the moisture they need. Consider an attic ventilation problem in your attic if regular mold growth becomes a regular problem.
