Possible Signs of Mold – What to Look For
Your nose and eyes are your best guides when it comes to locating mold in your house. If you do see or smell mold, you should assume a problem exists, and give us a call. It is important to realize that by the time you see or smell mold, it has likely spread around quite a bit. This is because, in its early stages, many molds have no smell and are too small to see.
Some signs of possible mold problems include:
- Musty smells
- An increase in allergies, asthma or other previously absent medical conditions
- Visual signs of green, gray, or black powdery discoloration in any area of the house
Mold often has a soft, velvety or even leather-like texture, and it comes in many different colors. Look for it in attics, crawl spaces, stored items, under carpets, behind wallpaper, in sink cabinets, or anywhere that moisture has ever been a concern.
What Could Have Caused Mold to Grow in Your Portland Home?
Mold needs water to grow, and here in the Pacific Northwest, we have an ideal climate for mold growth. Some of the most common causes of mold are:
- Roof leaks
- Clogged gutters
- Water intrusion from rooftop ice dams
- Plumbing leaks – faucets
- Blocked foundation vents / pooling water around the foundation
- Yard drainage through the foundation into the crawlspace
- Inadequate attic ventilation
- Disconnected, missing, or misdirected bath and kitchen vents into the attic
