Mold can grow a lot faster than you might expect. Sometimes it can happen after something as simple as several steamy showers in a row without turning on a fan—though that’s not always the case. Here’s how you can tell when it’s time to schedule a mold inspection.
- There’s a musty scent in the house: One of the most common signs of mold is a musty scent in the house that just doesn’t go away no matter how hard you clean. Even if you can’t see the mold growing anywhere, you may still want to consider a mold inspection if the musty smell persists.
- You can see the mold: Whether it’s in your carpet, on the floorboards, on the ceiling, or on the walls, you should get the mold checked out and removed if you can see spots of blue, black, or green fuzz.
- Signs of water damage: Signs like bubbling paint or drywall, yellow stains on the walls, or other discoloration in the walls or floors may not always directly correlate with mold, but it’s better to be cautious than to have more severe mold problems down the road.
- Recent water leaks: If you have a persistent water leak coming from your dishwasher or pipes, it’s likely that mold could be growing beneath those leaks. It’s a good time to get the leaks fixed as well as schedule a good mold inspection.
