How Do I Know If I Have a Mold Problem?
Updated: Apr 28
While a rampaging mold infestation is easy to see, mold grows best in damp, dark places, such as ventilation ducts or crawl spaces.
However, if you have had recent water damage, there is a good chance you have a mold problem. That’s because moisture combined with certain organic compounds found in both drywall and insulation make a great home for mold. That’s why when you do have water damage, experts generally recommend that the section of damaged drywall or plaster be completely replaced, rather than painted over.
Many people notice the musty smell associated with mold before they see the mold itself. If you do smell a musty, damp odor, especially coming from your forced-air ducts, you should have a professional inspect the area to determine if mold is the culprit.
Furthermore, if you are experiencing tenacious respiratory issues, and you don’t feel like a standard cold is to blame, know that mold could be the cause. Again, considering the long-term health issues associated with mold infestation, it is wise in such cases to have a professional investigate.
