Call Stern Mold for Mold Identification and Removal Needs

How do you know when your home or building is in need of NYC mold removal? Here are three specific warning signs of a mold problem that require immediate attention.

1. Visible Mold Colonies

Mold spores are undetectable to the naked eye, but indoors or outdoors, they’re always present in the air. The spores themselves are generally not a problem until they land on a surface and begin multiplying. Regularly inspect your home or building for visible mold, paying special attention to attics, bathrooms, kitchens and basements.

2. Musty Odors

Absence of visible mold doesn’t mean you’re home-free. Mold can easily develop behind walls, under cabinets and in other out-of-the-way places. As mold feeds on organic materials, it releases chemicals that have an unpleasant earthy or musty smell. The distinctive odor is often a tell-tale clue of a hidden mold infestation.

3. Allergic Symptoms

Have you noticed a tendency to begin sneezing not long after returning home? As you inhale mold spores, they irritate the linings of the nose and sinuses. Even if you don’t usually suffer from allergies, the result can be chronic upper respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and watery eyes. People with existing respiratory illnesses and compromised immune systems are particularly vulnerable.
