Mold: A danger to both your health and your home
Mold damage can affect your life in two important ways:
- The health of you, your family, and your pets.
- The physical structure of your home.
Both are important to you, which is why mold remediation must happen quickly.
It is critical that you contact a mold specialist as soon as you suspect you have a mold problem. When detected early, mold can be removed and the source eliminated without damaging your health, or the value of your property.
Health Effects From Mold Exposure:
Mold comes in many types. Some varieties are highly toxic, while others are not. All types of mold are bothersome and have the potential to be irritating or harmful. Prolonged or long-term exposure to mold increases your health risks and can lead to long-term complications.
Here are a few of the health hazards which can occur from prolonged mold exposure:
- Increased problems for people with asthma
- Adult-onset asthma
- Breathing complications / shortness of breath
- Allergic reactions
- Constant coughing problems
- Skin irritations, rashes, or hives
- Upper respiratory distress, illnesses, and issues
- Acute Idiopathic Pulmonary Hemorrhage in Infants
- Memory Loss – Forgetfulness
- Lethargy – a constant feeling of tiredness
In a few rare cases, health complications from mold have resulted in the death of both adults and children.

Where should I check for mold in my home?
Mold can show up in just about any corner of your home, but it’s most likely in places which are warm and damp. (Kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms are prone to mold infestations.) Also, areas with poor airflow can develop mold.
Here are a few common places mold infestations happen around homes:
- Leaks in your roof
- Around air ducts
- Places that stay moist
- Leaky windows
- Furnace air filters
- Places where water stands after rains or lawn watering
- Dripping pipes (check under sinks, around tubs, and showers)
- Ventilation systems
Additionally, mold can take hold on these types of surfaces:
- In your insulation
- Carpets and Rugs
- Ceiling tiles (especially tiles with textures)
- Wood surfaces
- Painted surfaces
- Upholstery and Curtains
- Areas with dust build-up
Do you notice a musty smell in your home or business? That is a common indication of a mold infestation that even non-experts recognize instantly. You can often see mold, too. Most commonly it is a dark, or off-colored, spot or patchy spots on the surface. Keep in mind, not all mold is black.
CAUTION: If you notice the musty mold smell, or see the telltale signs of mold, a risk to your health is possible. Contact a mold remediation professional to evaluate the situation quickly.
Mold: The Damage Risk To Your Home
Early detection of mold is essential in reducing the damage to your home – and to your wallet. Mold usually starts on the surface, but over time it digs deeper and deeper into your home. The deeper the mold infestation, the higher the amount of damage and expense of remediation.
A small area of your carpet has water damage and gets infested with mold. At this point, it could easily be removed or destroyed. But if it is not detected early enough, it starts to spread. First, it penetrates into the underlying floor and decking. It can continue to spread into floor joists, walls, studs, and supporting beams. Each progression increases the difficulty of removing the mold and increases your cost. Eventually, the damage could necessitate the need to demolish a portion of your home and reconstruct.
This illustrates why the costs of mold remediation cannot be estimated without an inspection. What on the surface looks small, could be a major issue underneath the surface.
As an example, the damage could be isolated to a small area of flooring near your kitchen sink. You just remove the small section and replace it. This can be done for a few hundred dollars, which is a minor cost compared to the value of your home.
BUT, what if you ignored the first telltale signs and the mold spread? The mold could infest load-bearing beams, floor joists, and spread into cabinetry. Suddenly, you are talking about gutting the kitchen, tearing up floors, and spending tens of thousands of dollars.
That is why it is recommended you contact a mold removal specialist the moment you notice the signs of mold or if you’ve had some water damage. The sooner the problem is fixed, the less your cost and the less danger to the health of your family.
