Here’s What You Should Do if You Discover Mold in Your Home!

Jul 13, 2023

That four-letter word that no one likes to hear is “Mold”! It may bring you back to your childhood school days, where you would forget some sort of food in the bottom of your backpack and later find it due to its stench. Unlike the mould that may be at the bottom of your kid’s school bag, the kind that is typically located around your house can be pretty hazardous, especially for the elderly, young children, those who are immunocompromised, and those with lung diseases!

If you’ve just discovered some mold in your house, here’s what you need to do!

There are a few ways to tell if you have mold in your home:

  1. You can visibly see it on your walls, ceiling, or any other surface.
  2. Your home beings to smell a bit musty or damp
  3. You’ve noticed a place or places in your home that have some moisture or water build up
  4. You are feeling sick; cold or flu-like symptoms, worsening headache, respiratory issues, etc.
