Ten Reasons Your Should Get Your Home Tested For Mold
Mold Can Affect Your Family’s Health
Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposure include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints.
You Can’t Kill Mold With Vinegar, Bleach or Hydrogen Peroxide
If mold is a problem in your home, business, or school, you need to use a EPA approved product with the intended purpose to kill mold spores. Using other products could actually increase mold growth and be harmful to your health.
Your House Has a Musty Odor
A musty odor is typically the first sign that a mold contamination may be present. Mold gives off gasses known as MVOC (Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds) when they are feeding and reproducing. If your home smells musty, you better get it checked to be safe!
The Only Way To Fix Moldy Drywall is to Replace It
The only way to remove mold on absorbent materials such as sheet rock and ceiling tiles is to replace them or else mold growth will continue.
Mold May Be Growing In Your Carpet
In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem (by drinking fountains, sinks, or floors with leaks and frequent condensation), mold may be growing unseen in your carpeting.
Mold Is In Every Home
There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
Mold May Be In Your Shower
Mold loves to grow in warm, wet places like your bathroom. Because showers stalls and bathtubs aren’t frequently dried off, mold may be growing on your bathroom tiles, shower curtains, and ceilings.
Mold May Not Be Covered On Your Homeowners Insurance
Standard homeowners insurance will only cover mold growth if the moisture source was present due to an event that “happened all of a sudden” and not “over time due to a defect in the home or building”. Some insurance companies may offer a mold policy in addition to your current policy.
Mold Loves Condensation
Condensation is one of the leading causes for mold growth in a home, and unfortunately there are a lot of high moisture areas in a home (attics, bathrooms, closets, basements, crawl spaces) in addition to naturally cold surfaces (windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, and floors) where condensation tends to collect.
Mold Grows & Spreads Easily
Mold can grow virtually anywhere, provided moisture is present. There are different mold types that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. Sampling is the only way to be sure that what you are seeing is mold.
