When it comes to mold, it is always better to catch an infestation early. As the leading San Diego mold restoration and remediation service, we have seen our fair share of mold outbreaks and infestations in the home, and have been helping homeowners recognize the telltale signs and symptoms of mold infestation.
Here are some tips that all homeowners should keep in mind:
- Not all mold-like substances are actually mold. Pollen, dust, tree sap, and stains can resemble mold, and these substances, unlike mold, are not toxic or harmful.
- Mold has a musty, or “moldy” smell. It is easily recognizable and can make the air hard to breath.
- Mold grows rapidly and can be many colors. Most mold is green, grey, brown, or black.
- Mold exposure symptoms include headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, fever and chills. If you are suffering from mold exposure, you will notice that your symptoms lessen when you are away from home for long periods of time and get worse when you are home for long periods of time.
If you suspect that you have a mold infestation in your home, contact us right away for a professional mold inspection.
