    Detect and Prevent Mold in your Home

    Toxic mold can be harmful not only to your family’s health but also to the survival of your home as a livable space. If not detected early, mold can quickly get out of hand and grow in hard to reach areas, requiring costly home repair and cleanup to get rid of any growth. Additionally, children and people with weak immune systems are especially susceptible to health problems from mold, which could lead to costly medical treatment.

    Detecting Toxic Mold

    To keep your home safe from unwanted biological growth, keep an eye out for any of the following warning signs:

    • Leaky, rusty, or condensation pipes
    • Water stains on the walls, carpets, or ceilings
    • Persistent musty odors
    • Lack of proper ventilation indoors
    • High humidity in the house
    • Abundant black growth in the bathroom

    Preventing Toxic Mold Growth

    Besides looking for these warning signs, it is important to have your house properly and regularly maintained. If you don’t feel comfortable performing house checks and maintenance on your own, consider hiring a professional to do it for you:

    • Regularly check your pipes and replace warped or leaky parts.
    • Have your air conditioning system checked to make sure it is running properly and that your house is being adequately ventilated.
    • Keep all kitchen and bathroom surfaces clean. Mold can feed on old food left out or grime that has built up in the corners or tile cracks.
    • Check windows to ensure that they are properly insulated and that condensation is not building up between the panes.

    These simple maintenance steps, when performed regularly, may help to prevent mold growth in the home. If you notice persistent warning signs of mold growth indoors, consider having a professional mold test run in your home.
