Watch for Mold Damage in Your Spokane Home

5/28/2021 (Permalink)

Water leaks and unwanted moisture can quickly result in mold growth. Mold is dangerous because it can have health effects in some people. But, it is not always easy to know if mold is present. It can hide behind surfaces and under flooring. 

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. But, you may not see the mold growth because it may be covered by drywall or carpeting. However, it may also climb up on surfaces, such as appliances and cabinetry, over time.

Health Problems

Unfortunately, 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.
