Mold is the last word any homeowner wants to hear. With the weather heating up, it is mold’s favorite time to grow, putting you and your loved ones in possible danger of health risks. Here at Purely Green Environmental, it is safe to say we understand mold well and conduct comprehensive mold testing in NH. The question is, do you? Here are some signs that your home may be growing mold.
Pollen has been quite the issue this year. However if you have noticed your allergies escalating once you have stepped inside, then there is a good chance of mold growing somewhere in your house. Common allergic reactions to mold include, sneezing, sore eyes and a runny nose or nasal congestion.
Do not ignore your nose! When you have hidden mold in your house, often that mold smell might be your only clue. Never ignore those moldy odors, even if you cannot see the actual issue. This is a crucial time to call for mold testing in NH! When the smell is ignored, the problem can become much worse, making the remediation costs on the higher side.
There are certain areas in your home that you can expect mold growth. Any signs of moisture including water stains or discoloration on walls, floors or ceilings are your best clue for mold prone spots. Another sign of a moisture problem is surface abnormalities like peeling, bubbling or cracking of the paint or wallpaper. Seeing these could be a clue that there is mold growing within or behind the material.
Visible mold growth seems like a very obvious sign. However, you would be surprised by the number of people that ignore small amounts of mold growth because of its resemblance to dirt or soot. If you can see mold growth, even small amounts, you should take action immediately. The smallest of patches can spread to potentially dangerous levels. Purely Green Environmental will conduct mold testing in NH and provide you with a written report that will highlight the necessary action steps for its safe removal.
