Mold has been becoming somewhat more common with the construction of newer “green” houses. This is because in an effort to make homes more energy efficient, they’ve decreased air flow dramatically. Restricted air flow means the mold spores can’t escape back outside. When there are more spores inside rather than outside the home, it becomes a recipe for disaster. Introduce still water that sits for too long with poor ventilation, and you will have a mold problem eventually.
So how can you tell if there is mold present? Use your nose. If you can smell that stale mildew smell, it comes from spores feeding on nutrients and gassing off. You don’t exactly have to have a water damage event for it to grow and reproduce. In fact, when relative humidity is 60% or above for extended periods, mold is very likely to grow. Keeping your home’s humidity levels at 50% or lower is crucial to prevent mold from growing.

Stachybotrys chartarum, which is considered toxic mold, is actually quite rare. It results from a long-term moisture issue, such as a water damaged property that has been un-occupied for an extended time. This is the stuff you really need to worry about. It is very expensive to get rid of, and is quite hazardous to your health. You don’t want to be exposed to this thick black mold, as it gets into your lungs and can cause serious long-term health effects. Most of the other molds are actually the types that can cause allergies.
You cannot tell what type of mold you’re dealing with just by looking at it. It will have to be laboratory tested in order to identify it properly. This is because the color it takes on is a result of what it has been eating. The health effects for people will vary. Some people may just have allergic symptoms such as coughing and sneezing. Others will develop longer-term lung and asthmatic issues. Either way, mold removal is a service that you will need.
When Should Mold Removal Be Left to the Professionals?
The Environmental Protection Agency advices homeowners that they should contact a mold remediation company when the contaminated area exceeds 10 square feet. There are many cases where The Cleanup Doctors will coach someone over the phone on how to get rid of the mold on their own. You just need a concoction of bleach and detergent mixed with water. Keep in mind that this is only the first step. If you don’t get mitigate the water issue, the mold is likely to return. Mold remediation professionals know how to evacuate the spores using specialized mold remediation equipment.
There are preventative measures every homeowner should take to decrease the chance of mold growth. Here are a few:
- Run a vent fan when taking a shower
- Schedule dates for replacing air conditioning filters, and do it
- Have your gutters cleaned regularly, so water can run off properly
- Make sure your home is properly ventilated
- Keep humidity levels in check, preferably 50% or lower
Remember, mold begins to grow within 24-48 hours. You must fix the moisture issue as soon as possible. Any wet structural material or personal items should be completely dried right away.
