Mold is one of homeowners’ greatest enemies. It can lead to many issues, including health problems and even structural damage to your home. That’s why it’s important for you to recognize signs of mold damage early to help minimize the spread of mold spores.

3 Signs of Mold Damage You Shouldn’t Ignore

Here are three of the top signs of mold damage that you should keep an eye out for:

  • Visible mold. Obviously, visible mold is a sign of mold damage. But it can be tricky to spot. Homeowners often try to eliminate any mold they see and then assume they’ve taken care of the problem. However, visible mold isn’t usually alone — there’s a high likelihood that there’s hidden mold elsewhere in your home. For this reason, you should reach out to a professional mold removal service to perform an inspection.
  • Musty smell. Mold has a distinct musty smell. Paying attention to this smell can alert you to mold that may not be visible, such as growth under flooring or in other spots you may not be keeping an eye on. Don’t ignore musty smells around your home, especially around areas with high moisture levels, such as your bathroom.
  • Warped paint. Moisture can warp paint and cause mold to grow on it, becoming both an eyesore and a potential health hazard to you and your family. Pay attention to the paint on your walls, and if it begins to warp, try to locate the source of the excess moisture as soon as possible.
