Mold spores are invisible to the eye, and travel through the air. Outdoors, mold is helpful. It travels and naturally degrades plant material. However, indoor mold is dangerous to health and can lead to respiratory problems, allergic reactions, nausea and headaches.
Every home has the potential for mold when spores are introduced to the correct conditions. Spores tend to flourish in warm and damp areas —kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms are particularly prone to growth. Mold often grows in places that are not visible, such as inside walls. If a pipe has a small leak inside your wall, you might not even be aware of it for some time. Water can lead to significant damage.
So, how do you know that you have mold in your home? The best way to determine if you have mold is with a professional mold inspection. Here are three benefits of regular mold inspections according to the experts at ServiceMaster or Buncombe County.
Even if you do not currently have mold growing in your home, you might have areas that are at risk for mold. A mold inspection can help reveal leaks and other areas of moisture in your home. Remediating these issues can help you avoid not only mold but also prevent other costly damage.
Mold spreads incredibly quick. It takes just 48 hours or less for it to grow and it can colonize in as little as a day. Locating and permanently remediating mold can keep it from spreading throughout your home.
Mold is dangerous to almost everyone, and most people are not aware when they have been exposed to mold. Mold exposure initially causes minor symptoms—such as a cough, headache runny nose or congestion. These are often initially confused for something else. However, the symptoms from mold exposure don’t get any better. Mold exposure has been linked to asthma and other chronic issues. Therefore, it is best to prevent health problems by having regular mold inspections.
