If you smell an odor or see mold in your home, it is time to take action. While some mold is unavoidable, an overgrowth of mold can lead to serious issues. Mold exposure can cause a variety of health problems, like asthma, recurring sinus infections, and other illnesses. Mold can spread quickly if it is left untreated, so it’s important to get it treated before it’s too late.

What is Mold? Is it Dangerous?

Mold is a type of fungus that grows in multicellular structures called hyphae. These fungal colonies produce the mold spores which can be found indoors and outdoors, though these microscopic organisms need moisture to grow- something like refrigerators or shower rooms often have more than enough for it! Besides producing common things such as medicine (namely penicillin), some species actually cause illness when they’re inhaled because these molds release toxins into one’s system causing pain at first then leading towards lung issues if left untreated.

There are two dangers to mold growth in or around your property. First, when mold begins to grow, it feeds on the materials it is growing on, leading to irreversible damage. Second, mold can cause a number of illnesses by releasing small particles and byproducts into the air, which can irritate or be the cause of many illnesses. Respiratory issues can be caused if these are breathed in. Black mold is a form of mold that can be found in properties that can lead to problems.

How do you know if you have a mold problem?

The most obvious sign of mold is its presence. You may also be able to smell the mold in the air. If there is visible mold present, this should not go unnoticed. However, even if no signs of mold are apparent, it may still be present. This means that while you might not notice anything wrong, the mold could potentially be affecting your family members’ health. It is also possible that the mold has been around longer than you think.

What Does Mold Look Like?

Mold can be sneaky. While mold can be very obvious, it often starts as nothing more than a simple discoloration of walls or ceilings. There are several common issues that point towards a mold problem:

  • Discolored walls or ceilings
  • Visible mold growth
  • A musty, earthy smell, or other bad smell.
  • Water damage in the building

These can lead to allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and even lung infections. If your immune system is suppressed for any reason, mold can cause even worse issues.

What Does Mold Smell Like?

The musty scent of mold is one that many people describe as “musty”. It’s an outdated, stale and damp odor which lingers in the air. The first clue to its presence could be detected within 24 hours if conditions are right; however this may take longer than normal because even though these spores can form quickly, they usually require some type or medium for growth.

When this happens, you need to locate the root of the scent and eliminate it. The quicker mold is removed, the less time it has to spread. The mold can be harmful to your health, depending on the type that is growing. Those with asthma, allergies, or compromised immune systems are at higher risk of contracting mold, so when you smell something musty, find the source as soon as possible!
