How Do I Know If I Have a Mold Problem?
In McAllen, TX, what may seem like a simple question has a very complex answer. That’s because, without a thorough inspection by a professional mold inspector, there’s really no way to know if you have a mold problem. However, there are some warning signs to keep in mind.
The first, and probably most obvious, is that you can see and/or smell mold. Mold has a pungent, musty smell and is easily recognizable, especially if you’ve dealt with a mold problem before. If you can see mold, you not only have a mold problem, but you’ve likely had one for a while. The reason for this is that mold is microscopic, meaning it can’t be seen with the naked eye. If you can actually see mold forming, what you are looking at is millions, yes millions, of microscopic mold spores, all living on top of each other in a mold colony. Think of it as an apartment complex for mold. If that mold colony gets jostled or interrupted, millions of mold spores fly into the air. Because they weight practically nothing, they can float far and wide.
What Are Some Other Signs?
If you notice that every time you come home, you start to feel worse, but when you leave for the day, you soon feel better, that’s a good sign that you have mold in your home. But what are those allergy symptoms?
Mold illness affects each person differently, if at all. What to you may seem like an innocuous thing, a stuffed-up nose and a slightly sore throat, can be a world of trouble for someone else. Mold allergies can be very severe and even life-threatening. Especially for those who are extraordinarily sensitive, like children, the elderly, and those with already compromised immune systems, symptoms can go from red eyes and asthma, to numb limbs and hallucinations.
