Signs of Mold in Your Fort Mill Home
There are many signs of mold that you could be missing in your Fort Mill home. But missing these evident smells could lead to future problems. Let’s take a look at the signs of mold in your Baltimore home.
A Musty Smell
Every home has a particular smell. Over time, we become use to this smell and don’t notice it as often. But what happens when the smell in your home changes? This change in smell could be a sign of mold. If you notice a musty smell in your home, it could be a tell-tale sign of mold growth. A musty and moist smell is a clear sign that there is water and possibly mold hidden in your Fort Mill home. If you follow the smell and see mold, you should call a mold remediation specialist right away to help remove the mold and smell from your home.
Moisture from a leaky pipe, drippy faucet, or a flooded basement can spell big problems for your home. Mold can start to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours after moisture exposure. These water problems must be taken care of quickly in order to prevent mold from growing in your Fort Mill home.
The ventilation system in your home is a vital part of pushing old air and pent up moisture out of your home while bringing fresh air in. But when these vents are clogged or not working well, they can cause your home to have moisture problems including condensation. The moisture in these areas of your home can lead to mold growth. If some of your rooms feel more humid than others, it could be a sign of poor ventilation in your Fort Mill home. Make sure to have your air ducts and vents cleaned and checked for mold every year to prevent these issues.
If you notice any signs of mold or think you could have a mold problem, it is extremely important to have these problems checked out as soon as possible. For more information on our mold remediation services, call SERVPRO in Fort MIll.
