Where Is Mold Typically Discovered in North Syracuse Houses?
North Syracuse Homeowners Have Seen Many Types of Mold Damage.
Mold is an often-underappreciated threat to Syracuse area homes after storm damages, water emergencies, or high humidity concerns. While mold can appear almost anywhere on your property, there are areas where it is more likely to develop than others.
The Common Areas for Mold Growth
There are several areas where mold damage in North Syracuse homes is possible, and identifying these potential threats is critical to preventing costlier harm by finding developing mold concerns early. Some commonly affected spaces include:
- Bathroom – Steam and water damage present in the bathroom can allow mold development under sinks, behind toilets, and in other damp areas.
- Basement - Moisture from groundwater and the dark, cool conditions are often ideal for the development of residential mold.
- Attic – Roof leaks and other moisture concerns can leave this confined space vulnerable to mold growth.
How Do You Know There is Mold?
Some physical signs and signals could point to developing mold colonies where these effects might not be blatantly obvious. Spotting is the earliest physical stage of colonization, where mold appears on the surface of the hosting material via irregular spots and marks of various colors. Musty odors can also indicate active colonization, even when they cannot be seen.
