Seeing Signs of Mold

1/8/2019 (Permalink)

Suspecting mold in your Houston, TX home could be a little tricky, and even overlooked. When mold is growing, hidden away, often a moldy smell might be the only clue that alerts you. Don't ignore mold odors due to not physically seeing it on a surface. Make the attempt to thoroughly inspect your home before a mold problem increases.

Visible mold growth might seem like an obvious sign. However, so often, many people overlook small amounts of mold growth even thinking it's just soot or dirt, or just simply ignoring it.

If you can see mold growth, even if it's considered very small, you should take action immediately. Small mold patches can spread and the fact that there is any mold shows that the conditions in your home are right for mold to grow.

If you don't take care of mold it will soon become a bigger problem. Visible mold growth could also be a sign that there is a much larger mold colony growing hidden away from view.

Sometimes you might not realize there is mold in your house, especially if it is unusual looking mold. Some mold growth looks white and thread-like. Other mold appears as clusters of small black spots. Mold can be black, gray-brown, gray-green or white in color. Mold growing behind wallpaper made of vinyl can even appear orange, pink or purple.
