Signs of Mold Damage in Spokane

5/29/2020 (Permalink)

Water leaks and unwanted moisture can cause mold growth rather quickly. Mold is dangerous because it can cause health effects in some people. Yet, knowing mold is present is not easy. It can hide behind surfaces and under flooring. There are several signs it may be present.

A Unique Smell

Some types of mold have a very specific smell. If you have a musky, heavy scent in areas where it is damp, such as the basement or a crawlspace, this may indicate the presence of mold.

Discoloration on Surfaces

Mold can be green to black in color. It is not always evident, though. You may not see the mold growth because it is covered by drywall or carpeting. However, it may climb up on surfaces, such as appliances and cabinetry, over time.

Health Problems

In some cases, the first sign of mold damage may be health effects. You may notice it is worse in some areas of the home, especially areas that are damp and dark.
