3 Key Signs of Mold in Your Tennessee Home

Many people suffer from a mold allergy, which can result in serious health challenges for those with daily exposure inside their homes. Unfortunately, mold is a common issue in Tennessee homes due to our humid climate. All-Pro Home Inspections offers professional mold testing if you suspect mold may be infiltrating your home so that you can know the extent of your issue with certainty. Let’s review three common signs that you may be dealing with a mold infestation.

Mold Testing

1. Visible Mold 

If you observe any unusual spots on walls or other surfaces in damp spaces within your home, that is a telltale sign of mold growth. Mold can appear as black, gray, or green spots. Our experts will test any areas in your home where mold is visible or areas that can be a breeding ground for mold growth, such as bathrooms and basements. We will test the visible mold that’s present to determine the type that you have.

2. Musty Odors

Sometimes, you don’t visibly see any mold but can smell strong odors. Mold often gives off a distinctive musty odor, indicating growth behind your walls or underneath your flooring. In addition to testing surfaces for mold, we can also test the air inside your home for mold spores to catch anything hidden from plain sight.

3. Moisture & High Humidity 

If you have constant problems with moisture and high humidity, keep in mind that mold thrives in these conditions. Any areas with water damage from leaks or flooding should be inspected for signs of mold growth. Within three days of sending your samples to our third-party laboratory, we will know whether or not mold is present, what type of mold it is, and what the mold levels are.
