What to do if you suspect mold in your home

Mold exposure can lead to several health-related problems. With its natural ability to travel through the air, the inhalation of mold spores can create a variety of respiratory ailments. Common side effects include asthma, allergies, respiratory infections, sinus infections and skin rashes. In some cases, mold exposure can even be fatal.

Ron Porter, Porter's Eco Care: “There are two times where a concern for mold comes up and that is one is where they actual see visible signs of black staining, blue-green staining. Mold comes in different colors, different types of molds does have different colors. The other sign is a very pungent odor or a musty smell which is usually caused by stagnant air and just doesn’t smell fresh at all. We recommend that they call a company that is equipped to come out and test the walls and certain areas of the house along with the humidity of the house for high levels of moisture. This will be the evidence in the areas to point the remediation company in the right direction for potential mold behind walls that is hidden. In the main living area one of the ways to prevent is to professionally mitigate any water damage that occurs from a broken pipe or any other kinds of water damage from the home. In attics and in crawl spaces turn those areas into condition spaces where the humidity is controlled is probably one of the number one things you can do to a crawl space. In an attic one of the number one things is to make sure there are no bathroom vents that are pumping humid air from bathrooms up into an attic where by produces an environment for mold.”
