Mold on wall

Mold is an environmental and health hazard known to cause various health problems. Mold can grow in your home when you have broken walls, leaky foundations, high humidity issues, poor ventilation, and damp basements. Mold produces irritants, allergens, and toxins that can affect the health of loved ones. The team at Mammoth Restoration recommends watching out for the following signs of mold.

Musty Odors

When mold infests your home, the first noticeable sign is a musty odor. Mold emits microbial volatile organic compounds and pungent chemicals. The mix of the chemicals and mVOCs leads to the production of stale and earthy smells. When you notice musty odors that keep intensifying over time, it’s crucial to seek emergency restoration services.

Worsened Allergies and Asthma Issues

When mold grows in your home, allergic and asthmatic loved ones will start complaining bitterly. Loved ones will experience issues with nasal congestion, sneezing, chest tightness, coughing, watery eyes, itchy eyes, and dry, scaly skin. You’ll often note that the symptoms worsen when the loved ones move closer to areas with high mold concentrations, including basements, bathrooms, closets, and attics. Our restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ, can help remove the mold to keep your allergic and asthmatic loved ones safe.

Thread-like or White Spots

When mold grows in your home, you’ll start noticing thread-like, white spots in your home. Mold spots on your walls will appear white, gray-brown, or black. The spots on wallpapers and vinyl materials will appear purple, orange, or pink. When you notice water stains and discoloration on your ceilings, walls or flooring, you should contact your water damage restoration specialists to remove the stagnant water and growing mold.

When mold starts growing in your space, it could indicate various nasty signs, the above-mentioned being the main ones. For high-quality mold restoration services, contact the top restoration company: Mammoth Restoration. Schedule an appointment with our team today.
