Mold is a major problem across North Carolina. This is because mold often grows in hard-to-reach spots where you might not notice it right away. It will sit in these dark and damp corners, growing happily away and releasing hundreds of toxic spores into the air around you. Learning what the basic signs are of mold in your home can help you combat the problem through calling a professional mold removal company to help you out.
The first thing that you want to keep an eye out for is visible signs of mold. While this may seem obvious when said out loud, a surprising amount of homeowners do not notice mold when it is growing around them. You may think that it’s simply dust or dirt; so be sure to take a minute and inspect any areas that seem suspect. If you do see a little bit of mold growing then it could be a sign that there is even more mold nearby out of your sight. Another important sign of mold in your home is a moldy or musky scent. Mold releases a very distinct odor and you can learn to smell it in your home easily with a little bit of practice. For the very first time you may not even need to smell it as chances are good that it will cause you visible health issues such as a cough or sore throat. After that you will learn to notice the smell of mold.
