How To Tell If You Have A Mold Problem Without Seeing It

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in .

One of the most challenging things about owning a home is dealing with the unforeseen problems that can arise. Plenty of things can rear their head without your knowledge, and perhaps the most infamous of the bunch is mold! Mold can pose serious hazards to your home, especially if you’re allergic to it. The longer it’s allowed to fester, the worse these problems will get! The only issue is that mold isn’t always the most visible problem. So, how can you detect it without seeing it? We give you some tips below!

You Notice A Foul Smell

Your sense of smell is going to play a big role in your detection of mold! One of the dead giveaways that there may be mold growing in your home has to do with unusual odors. Specifically, you should be on the lookout for damp and musty odors that are foreign to your building. Mold doesn’t have one specific smell, but anything damp and musty should be an immediate cause for investigation. The quicker you can stamp mold out, the healthier your home will be!

Allergy Flareups

Mold can have serious effects on your personal health. While allergy flareups are something nobody wants to have happen to them, they can be a telling sign that mold is growing in your home! If you’re getting nosebleeds far more often, noticing flareups in your asthma, or sneezing far more often than you would be, it could be a sign that mold is growing! You should visit your doctor first to rule out any other possible ailments, but if you notice these problems happening at home more often than abroad, it’s a cause for concern.

Examining Your Home’s Past

Looking at the past can have a funny way of telling you what might happen in the future. This is especially the case when it comes to mold growth! Typically, your home is more likely to suffer mold growth after an event involving water damage. Did your area recently experience a flood? Did you recently have to deal with a burst pipe? Regardless of the cause of water damage, you’ll need to be extra vigilant about checking for mold in the weeks following a water damage event.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
