No one likes mold. It’s unsightly and a potential health hazard, especially for people who have preexisting respiratory concerns, such as asthma. For this reason, it’s important to be able to recognize signs of mold damage in your home. Here are some of the most common ways that mold damage manifests itself in the home.

What Does Mold Damage Look Like in the Home?

  • Visible growth. This type of mold damage is probably the most obvious. However, mold growth can look a few different ways, including different colors and spreads. Some of the most common types of growth are small black clusters and white thread-like growths, but regardless of the growth you’re noticing, it’s best to reach out to professionals if you suspect it’s mold.
  • Musty odor. Mold often comes with a distinct musty odor. If you notice this odor, especially in areas that may attract a lot of moisture, such as the bathroom or basement, you may have some level of mold damage in your home.
  • Furniture fungus. Have you noticed any fuzzy or discolored spots on your leather or wooden couch? You probably don’t want to sit there anymore, as these spots may be mold growth. Mold likes the fibers in your furniture, so inspecting your furniture for mold is a good idea if you have any concerns.
