Sometimes, mold damage can be obvious. However, in other situations, you may not know that mold has started to grow inside of your home or business until significant damage has been done. For this reason, it’s a good idea to be able to recognize some of the common signs of mold.
Where Does Mold Usually Grow?
Although mold damage can grow virtually anywhere, mold usually grows in places that are moist and dark. This is one of the main reasons why mold problems are so prevalent in bathrooms. Additionally, mold will also grow in areas where a food source, like carpet, wood molding, or insulation, is present.
The Signs of Mold Damage
If you think that you have a mold damage problem on your hands, a few signs may be present in the affected area, such as:
- A musty or moldy smell
- Water stains or discoloration on the ceilings or on the walls
- Small spots of standing water or condensation on nearby window sills, floors, or walls
Additionally, although this may seem obvious, you probably have a mold problem if you can actually see the mold that’s growing on your property.
