Common Signs of House Mold
Mold & mildew may not be
apparent but human behavior is, so what do you look for?
human condition is so predictable that it's scary. There are some very
exact behaviors that indicate a house
mold problem. Black mold
symptoms, house mold symptoms, and any type of mold growth affect human
behavior in very specific patterns.
One of the most wide spread behaviors is to burn scented candles
house. Sometimes the scent is for "soothing the soul"; however, when
you are burning a candle to mask odors - that's a behavior that
indicates mold and mildew in about 60% of the cases.
A second very wide spread behavior is found in the basement. When
someone doesn't store their stuff directly on the floor, that's a very
good indicator that there is a mold and mildew issue. Why? Because the storage
is raised off the floor due to water. Where there is
dampness, lack of direct light, and a relatively untouched area, there
is mold and mildew.
A third behavior is the act of kids drawing on the fogged windows
inside the house. This excessive moisture is the cause of mold growth.
The behavior is the smily
face on your sliding glass door. Again, human
behavior is very predictable and when you know what to look for, you'll
know that there is a high percentage chance that there could be a mold
and mildew problem.
It is a good idea to remember that just because you clean up mold in
your home doesn't mean the problem is solved. That mold is a colony.
That is where a lot of mold plants congregate in a large enough area
for you to see them. When
you clean up the mold colony, you will
invariably discharge hundreds of mold spores into the air
Mold spore are not visible and readily float on any air current within
the home. They will settle on a wet spot. (Think about it. Not much
sticks to dry areas.) When the spores
stick to the moist surface they
will also need food. Mold feeds on anything organic.
A damp towel (bathroom, kitchen) is a good place for mold to begin to
grow. A plumbing fixture or pipe that sweats is a great place to land,
stick, and begin growing. A wet corner or leak in the
shower. An empty
box sitting on the garage floor is another great place.
mold you just cleaned up has allowed you to help it spread and
further infest your living space. You probably live in a
home that is practically air tight to the outside weather. Guess what?
It's practically air tight to the inside air too.
Those mold spores (from your cleaning job) have spread. They are
breeding and living on almost everything possible. What do you do?
You should first obtain the free report "Top 10 Mold and
Solutions". After reviewing the report, realize you'll need
powerful techniques and weapons. Then investigate the way mold is
stopped in "How
to Get Rid of Black Mold". In the book are three very
specific techniques for greatly killing mold in your home and ending
the reproductive cycle that your usual cleaning aides.
Everything has been tested, every technique can be done by even the
most challenged of humans. It's just a matter of finding all the
information you need.
