However, it's not uncommon for homeowners to have problems with mold in their homes that go unnoticed for long period of time. It's very easy to ignore or not notice the warning sign of mold growth before the problem reaches the point that mold has an effect on their home or their health.
That's why it's extremely important to be aware of what the warning signs for mold are. Here are a few of the most common things that can tell you there's a problem with mold growth in your home:
Mold has a very pungent and persistent odor. If the problem is contained in one area of your home, you may only smell mold in that area. Mold could be living behind walls, or even just behind wallpaper, so you may not see any visible signs of mold before you smell it.
If you do notice an unusual and persistent smell in your New Jersey home, mold is a very likely culprit.
The Appearance of Mold
If mold is in your shower or bathtub, it can easy to distinguish it from normal soap scum. In other parts of your home, like your basement, it can be much more difficult to spot mold from visual signs. Mold will grow in area where moisture is present, so if your basement isn't properly waterproofed, it's very likely that mold will grow there.
Our professionals offer basement waterproofing services, and we can help you ensure that this is not a problem for your home.
Mold isn't always visible, and you won't always smell it, so it can be difficult to know that you have a problem that needs to be dealt with immediately. Mold does cause some health problems that you can also be on the lookout for. Look for members of your New Jersey household exhibiting symptoms like:
- Watery eyes
If any one exhibits these symptoms while in your home, they're likely being caused by mold. It's uncommon for a person who lives in a home with mold to feel better while they're at work or school during the day.
