Mold and the millions of spores it produces exist practically everywhere, inside and out. It’s a fact of nature. When mold spores find moisture and humidity, such as in a damp basement or under a leaky roof, and also the right food source, such as paper or wood, they land, they grow, and they thrive.
If not treated and cleaned promptly and thoroughly, the result can be an unhealthy level of mold spore concentration, and the consequences can be serious. Mold damages walls, woodwork, and other structural components of residential and commercial buildings; mold destroys personal belongings such as books, photos, and clothing; and it jeopardizes the health of the people and animals who occupy a building where mold exists.

Sometimes the signs of mold are obvious, you can see and/or smell it. Other times, mold grows and lurks in hidden or unreachable areas of your home or business establishment. In all cases, if mold exists on your property, it is important that you thoroughly clean and eliminate the mold problem before it spreads even further and causes more damage to your property or makes people sick. See below for some of the most common signs you have a mold problem.
Your residence or business suffered water damage from a rain, snow, or ice storm, or some other type of flooding, and you suspect mold may be lurking in dark, out-of-the-way areas that were not treated during the water cleanup process.
Building occupants complain of new or exacerbated respiratory health issues such as allergies and asthma, coughs, and nasal congestion when inside the property, and their symptoms improve when they leave the building.
Walls, carpeting, ceilings, and more contain new or expanding dark patches and discoloration.
Plywood, drywall, and other building materials show areas of decay and decomposition.
Personal items made of organic materials – natural fibers, paper, leather – smell of mildew and show visible mold growth.
