Signs and Symptoms of Mold

Mold is a naturally occurring organic product that is found absolutely everywhere, both outdoors and inside. It’s normal to have low levels of mold present, however when mold levels rise, you could start experiencing the signs and symptoms of mold. When you suspect mold, it’s important to call a professional mold remediation company like MicroZyme Technologies as soon as possible, since mold can grow at an alarming rate.

Signs of Mold

The physical signs of mold can include sight and smell. Mold may appear as black or brown dots or specks. You can find these spots anywhere that excess moisture could gather, like baseboards, flooring, bathroom or kitchen cabinets and especially in basements.

Mold can also give off a musty odor. Sometimes you will smell mold and not be able to see it, or you will see what looks like mold and not smell anything. It’s always important to have a professional test your home or office when you have just one indication of mold presence. Also keep an eye on any water damage, like leaky pipes or an HVAC system in need of repair. This can also lead to mold growth.

Symptoms of Mold

The symptoms of mold growth in your home or office can appear very similar to allergies or even a cold. You might experience sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, nasal congestion or headaches. Pay attention to when you experience these symptoms. Are they stronger when you are in your home or office? Do they disappear entirely when you leave? This is a strong indication of mold at too high of levels. Remember that you don’t always see and smell mold, it can often grow in areas that are hidden.
