Step 1
Mold Smell

How to Identify Dangerous Mold

To know whether you have dangerous mold growing in your home, look for the following signs as per American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA):

Mold Smell

One of the simplest ways to determine if mold is growing inside or outside your home is to give it the old sniff test. For those who have smelled mold in the past, they will likely never forget the smell. Mold on the outside of your house often smells stale, but mold on the inside smells musty and damp. If you have sniffed out some mold, have it taken care of before it becomes a pervasive problem.

Visible Mold Growth

Of course, if you see mold, then you know for sure that some mold exists. The question is, “How much?” It would be easy to assume that what you see is what you get, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. It’s the mold you can’t see that is often the scariest.

Water Leaks

Current or previous leaks are often the indicator that mold is present. Whether it was a leaky pipe or a leak in the roof, these often produce moisture in overlooked places.

Step 3

Water Intrusion

Water intrusion can take on many forms. Whether a sewer line is backed up or a pipe breaks or flooding occurs from an outside building, each problem can lead to mold if not cleaned carefully and completely. Often these problems cannot be spotted immediately, which leads to the probability of mold.

Past Flooding

If your house has been in a flood there’s a good chance you will end up with a mold problem. After a flood, the best thing you can do is contact a mold remediation company or water damage specialist who performs clean-ups of flooded homes. This way you can be sure that all mold problems will be properly taken care of.

Health Symptoms

Step 6
Health Symptoms

Black mold is known for causing the most damage to our bodies because it contains mycotoxins that affect our skin, respiratory functions, and more. If you or someone you love is experiencing a combination of any of the following symptoms, an inspection of your home is recommended:

  • Respiratory problems
  • Skin inflammation
  • Hemorrhage
  • Irritation of the mucous membranes
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Mental impairment
  • Tiredness
  • Nausea
  • Immune system suppression

When conducting a hunt for mold, turn off your HVAC system and any fans that are running to reduce the chance of spreading spores to other locations. These are some popular hiding places where mold may be lurking:

  • Under carpets and carpet pads
  • Behind wallpaper or draperies
  • Behind drywall, wallboard, and wood
  • On pipes
  • Inside ductwork
  • Above ceiling tiles
