3 Signs Your Home Needs Mold Remediation, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

Mold is often difficult to detect and can cause respiratory ailments and structural damage to the home. Identifying early warning signs that you need mold remediation services will keep the problem from getting out of hand.

3 Clues Your Home Has Mold

1. Musty Odors

Mold spores have a distinct musty odor that can help you locate growth areas. Be especially mindful of the potential for mold growth in your air conditioner. If you notice a musty smell when the air conditioner turns on, your HVAC system could be spreading mold spores through the entire house.

2. Discolored Tile Grout

mold remediationTile grout is a common breeding ground for mold, especially since it’s typically found in high-humidity areas like the bathroom. Tile grout should generally be white or off-white. While some discoloration over time is natural, it’s a good idea to routinely take a closer look at your tiles. Black mold growth often goes undetected in tile grout.

3. Bubbling Wall Paint

Water damage often leads to mold growth if not addressed properly. While checking for mold growth after a flood or plumbing leak, keep an eye out for unusual damage to your walls. Bubbling paint and peeling wallpaper often occur because of leaks or humidity buildup behind the wall. Letting these dark, humid areas go untreated may soon bring about mold growth on the affected walls.
