We live in a very humid environment where our homes and commercial buildings are extremely susceptible to mold and mildew. Let’s look at ways you can determine if your property is affected.
1. One of the key notable factors will be the smell. Do you smell a musty or mildew-like smell?
2. Mold comes in many different colors black, brown, green, white, pink, yellow, and orange. So look around your property for visual signs.
3. Do you experience headaches while inside and feel better when going out? Other symptoms may be coughing, runny nose, watery eyes, fatigue, and dizziness.
4. Inspect your vents, evaporator coils, or drip pans for patches of black fungi.
Many times homeowners don’t even notice mold being present in their homes but during an annual maintenance check, the problem can be caught and treated early. If you suspect that there may be a problem in your system, don’t wait. Make sure to have the HVAC and duct system checked by a professional so that the mold can be eradicated as soon as possible.
