All homes and offices have the potential for mold growth: mold spores, a surface for it to grow on, oxygen, warmth and darkness. When moisture, either from a water leak, stagnant water or high levels of humidity, is added, that's when a mold problem can begin. 

Mold damage should be taken care of as soon as possible. The longer it grows, the more damage it causes.

Mold Damage reconstruction

There are more than 100,000 types of mold that grow indoors and outdoors with varying levels of health concerns. However, all experts agree, visible mold growth doesn't belong in a healthy home, regardless of the type. 

Mold can and will spread quickly, if not removed. The worse it gets, the harder it is to remove and the potential for health issues become more severe. Once identified, contact a restoration company to have it treated and removed immediately. 

Signs of mold growing in your home can include: 

Dark or colored spots on your walls

Grout between your shower tiles is dark

Musty odors, especially from your air conditioning or heater 

Peeling wall paper

 

Signs mold may be negatively affecting your health:  

Your asthma mysteriously gets worse 

Your seasonal allergies aren't getting better 

You feel like you have a cold that won't go away

Where to look for potential mold issues:

While people often think of bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and basements as the most common places for mold to grow, it can grow anywhere in the home where moisture exists.

Most common areas where mold is identified: 

Air conditioning units

Bath tubs 

Behind walls that house plumbing 

Refrigerators

Sinks 

Showers 

Toilets 

Walls directly above bathrooms 

Windows
