Mold is something that no one wants to have in their home. It sounds gross and disgusting but worse, it can negatively impact your health!
Mold can be found anywhere that moisture and oxygen exist. That means that your insulation, wood, paper, and carpet can all be homes for mold. When excessive moisture builds up on any of these types of materials, mold will start to appear and grow.
How To Tell If You Have Mold?
The most common cause for mold in a home or business is the humidity in that location is not regulated. Older constructed homes and out-dated construction methods lead to buildings not having ideal ventilation which causes moisture to build up. Roof leaks, combustion appliances, and the building’s landscape can all contribute to mold problems.
Not all mold can be seen with the naked eye. Mold often hides in dark areas like the back of drywall, paneling or even in between the wall and wallpaper. Pipes, furniture, and acoustic liners are all places you can expect to find mold if there is a moisture build-up in your home or office.
