Hidden Mold Threat
Sometimes you may think you have mold due to a musty smell, damp air, or even if you’ve been sneezing more than usual. These are all signs of mold and you should investigate it. However, it’s not always easy to determine exactly where mold is growing. Mold can grow just about anywhere and tracking it down can be quite a chore.
Some hiding places for mold include: behind walls, wallpaper, and ceiling tiles. Mold can also hide behind baseboards, under carpet padding, around pipes, and inside ductwork. It’s very difficult for a layperson to find mold in these areas. If you suspect mold but can’t find it, you should contact a mold cleanup company to find it, clean it, and correct the problem so it doesn’t return.
In some cases, you may discover a mold problem during a remodeling project. If you’re repainting and discover mold on your ceiling or around an air duct, it’s probably behind walls and/or inside your HVAC system as well. In these cases, it’s best to stop your project and consult a professional mold remediation company.
It’s important not to disturb discovered mold sources because the spores can and will spread like wildfire. When large amounts of mold spores are spread throughout your home, they will likely find the warm, moist places they need to thrive and become a problem elsewhere. This could be in plain sight or, as we stated above, somewhere you don’t notice until your home smells musty or you’re sneezing up a storm.
