Every Home Has Mold
 
Not Every Home Has a Mold Problem

How do you know if you have an indoor mold problem? Often one of the first indicators is that someone is sick.

If you, or someone you care about, is frequently suffering from conditions like those in the list below, mold could be the reason.

Sinus problems Difficulty concentrating
Allergies Sneezing
Difficulty breathing Runny nose
Headaches Coughing
Nausea Skin rashes
Dizziness Flu-like symptoms
Fatigue Irritation of the eyes, nose or throat

There are three ways to describe mold: Mold you can see, mold you can smell, and mold you can neither see nor smell.

Hidden mold is the most difficult to pin down, and often is associated with more prolonged illness among those who are sensitive to mold.  Mold often isn't even suspected as the culprit until everything else on the planet has been tried.  Many doctors brush off the idea that mold can cause health problems.

But the truth is spreading fast.

Building dampness and mold raise the risk of a variety of respiratory and asthma-related disease by thirty to fifty percent, according to medical research.

The Mayo Clinic announced in a 1999 study that 96 percent of chronic sinusitis is mold-induced.

According to a study by the Berkeley Labs, published in May 2007, twenty-one percent of all asthma cases in the US are attributable to dampness and mold exposure. This study was conducted with the US Department of Energy and the US Environmental Protection Agency.

To know whether you may have an undetected mold problem in your home, please ask yourself the following questions:
  • Is there a "musty" smell?
  • Are there visible signs of water damage?
  • Has there ever been a leak or flood in the basement?
  • Has the roof or a window ever leaked?
  • Have you ever had a plumbing leak?
  • Has the sink, toilet, tub, washing machine or sewer ever overflowed?
  • Has the property ever suffered other water problems?
  • Did the previous owner not maintain the house as well as they should have?
Mold needs moisture in order to grow, but it doesn't magically go away when the water dries.  Dried mold can be even more dangerous than damp, growing mold. And, if you have visible mold, there may also be hidden mold.

Mold can develop with 24 hours of a "water event," and it can fester for years, undetected, growing more powerful every day.

The Got Mold? Test Kit gives you the knowledge and tools to put you in control again.

Suspicious About Mold?
