1.      Dark Colored Spots

One of the ways many people discover mold in their homes is through dark-colored spots on the wall. These spots can come in many colors from gray to green, but one similar thing is that they will be darker than the color of your wall. Whether you have a wallpaper or paint on the walls, you are going to notice that the color in the area where mold has affected will be darker. The mold may be on the wall or behind it, but it will still have the same effect. This kind of sign happens often when humidity or leak caused the mold. If you notice this sign then we recommend checking your pipes for leaks. If you happen to notice any mold or leaks, give our team at MVP Environmental Solutions Inc. a call. We can come on out and confirm your suspicions.

2.      You Feel Itchy

Mold may start on your walls or pipes, but it can transfer to your clothing and towels. This is especially true if you have left wet or damp clothes and towels on the floor. Wet and damp areas are the perfect breeding area for mold to grow. You may not realize this and throw on the clothing or use the towel, this can result in extreme feelings of itchiness as the mold fibers will be touching your skin. If you start to notice this you may want to check out your home for any other mold fibers. You also are going to want to wash and dry everything damp. This can go a long way towards preventing mold from currently spreading and preventing it from spreading in the future.

3.      Your Seasonal Allergies Seem Worse Than Usual

The human symptoms of mold in the home are very similar to seasonal allergies. With this in mind, if your seasonal allergy symptoms seem worse than usual and seem to drag on longer than usual, then you may have mold lurking in the home. A great way to figure this out is to take a look at how you feel at work or someone else’s home, then see how you feel when you get into your home. If the allergies are worse at your home, you probably have mold.
