A Wet Spring May Mean Mold Growth in your Home
Springtime at the Jersey Shore is usually a month of wet, rainy weather followed by hot and humid temperatures. So it is important to be aware of the potential of mold growth in your home. Mold spores exist everywhere. Mold growth depends on certain conditions such as poor ventilation, moisture and air temperature. Every home has areas that have the potential for mold growth, so it is important to know where to look and what to look for. Places to look in your home that are susceptible to mold growth are areas that are constantly wet or humid such as:
- Crawl spaces
- Discoloration on walls, carpets and floors
- Visible mold growth – black, white, red, orange, yellow, blue, violet, etc.
- Noticeable muster and/or dirt odor
