Causes of Mold
Mold is a form of fungi, like yeasts and mushrooms. It can grow in bathrooms, kitchens, cabinets, attics, crawl spaces, and just about anywhere that’s susceptible to moisture. The most common causes of mold in residential properties include:
- Persistent humidity
- Burst pipes
- Leaky roof
- Condensation build-up
- Poor ventilation
- Leaky HVAC system
Signs of Mold Growth
So how do you know there’s mold in your Lafayette home? Here are a few of the tell tale signs.
- Water Damage: If your home has faced water damage from flooding, leaky pipes, toilet or bath overflow, or anything else, there’s a good chance you have mold as moisture allows mold spores to thrive.
- Leaky Appliances: Outdated appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines often lead to mold growth, as a result of the dampness.
- Roof Leaks: If you have a sagging ceiling or spots on your drywall, your roof is likely leaking and causing excess moisture for mold to grow.
- Rotten Smell: Do you notice a damp, musty odor coming from your walls and floors? This may be the result of the chemicals that are released during the mold life cycle.
- Allergy or Asthma Flare Ups: Certain types of mold can release mycotoxin, a harmful substance that can trigger respiratory problems for anyone with allergies or asthma.
