Signs That You Have Mold In Your Home
Brentwood and Nashville homes experiencing mold infestations usually begin in an area that has recently been subjected to water or is damp and dark. Since these places are often out of sight, mold infestations may be difficult to detect at first. However, there are signs that you should look for that will indicate that you have a mold problem.
• Musty Smell. A musty odor is usually the first sign that you have a mold problem. You may not even be able to see any mold at this point. If you are smelling mold, or what many believe mildew, there is a serious chance that you have mold growth in your home.
• Black Stains. Black stains will begin to appear in areas where mold growth is rampant. These stains may come from either side of the wall. These stains will spread very quickly and begin to cover a significant amount of area. This is black mold and it must be removed from your home.
• Water Leaks. If you have been dealing with water leaking into your home, you can almost guarantee that there is mold growth. Once repairs have been made to the building to prevent further water seepage, you will need to have the structure treated for mold.
