Is Mold, Mildew, or a Strange Odor Present In Your Home?
Mold is a type of fungus that can grow just about anywhere. The ideal place for this growth are places with high-humidity levels and damp environments. But mold and mildew can be much more than a simple nuisance as a property owner, it can become a serious potential liability and hazard for occupants. With over exposure tenants of a residence with mold may develop respiratory issues or other ailments like Asthma or heart problems that become more serious over time. Additionally, it’s not uncommon for individuals to be allergic to this growth.
If you own or manage property, here are some of the common warning signs you need to remain vigilant of:
- Unusual Smells: If there’s a room in your home that smells musty or “old” this is a common sign.
- Standing Water: A flooded basement is an obvious example, but less obvious is a shower head that continues to drip water for long periods of time. Another problem area is the laundry room where liquid can seep behind washers and dryers out of the line of sight of property owners. Yet another danger zone is the hole that contains a sump pump. Often the surface area around these pumps will remain wet, making it prime real estate for fungi.
- Green, black, or yellow tinted spots on walls is another indicator. Sometimes the color patches will creep out from tiny cracks in the wall so you should remain alert of these signals.
- Common Sources of Standing Water: Leaky pipes, air ducts, curtains, air conditioners, tiles, leaking roofs, underneath sinks, nearby washers and dryers.
