Mold Incognito: Signs that you may have mold present in your home  

So lately, it’s been raining a LOT in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area!

Everything is soaked-through and water-logged.

We have so much water, and nowhere for the latter to go. We have so much water, that plants have started sprouting up from between the cracks in cement walls!mold signs

We all know that mold is a common type of nuisance fungus that thrives in moist, warm conditions. In that regard, this weather is the perfect catalyst for a full-blown mold infestation in your home.

Now, we won’t get into the ‘nitty-gritty’ details, however most of us know that mold has extremely nasty implications on our homes, our health and our wallets, to say the least!

Let us therefore be proactive about making sure that we are not victim to a mold infestation.

The Mold Buster Scavenger Hunt:

A few questions to consider……

  • Can you smell it?
  • Can you see it?
  • Are there water stains/spots on the walls or ceilings of your home?
  • Do you have warping walls anywhere in your home?
  • Is there an unusual amount of condensation around the windows of any room in your home?
  • Do you have unusually high humidity levels?
  • Is the ventilation poor in any room in your home?
  • Is your roof missing any shingles?
  • Are your gutters blocked with leaves and debris?
  • Does your basement feel damp? Ooh and just by the way do you have a faulty, non-functional or non-existent sump pump?

As we mentioned before, mold thrives on the presence of moisture and warmth. In that regard, if you answered yes to at least 3 of the above, it might be a good idea to have a mold mitigation and remediation professional come out and assess your home and maybe even indoor air quality!
