WHAT CAUSES MOLD GROWTH
Mold is a fungus that has the ability to grow almost anywhere. Mold growth happens when there is an environment that is dark, moist and unventilated. Often, it is a result of any flooding or water damage that has happened in your home. However, the water damage does not need to be substantial for mold to grow. It could even grow from something as simple as a leaky faucet. Some spores may actually be dormant, meaning that the spores are in your house but may not manifest themselves. This can make it very difficult to know whether or not you actually have mold in your home. The best thing that you can do to prevent mold growth from happening in your home is to make sure that your home is dry, and that if there is any potential of moisture or water damage, that it gets taken care of immediately.
HOW TO RECOGNIZE MOLD GROWTH
There are common signs that mold is growing in your home. Sometimes it can be difficult to know when you have a mold problem, as it could be in the attic, insulation, walls, or even the structures of your home, but that does not mean that it is impossible. There are some signs that can be indicators that you have a mold problem without actually needing to see the mold. It is important to make sure that you know all of the signs so that you can get it taken care of before it becomes too big of a problem. Some of the signs of mold growth include:
Allergy Flare Ups

Mold is an allergen that can cause allergic reactions such as watery eyes, runny nose, congestion, and sneezing. If you experience an abnormal flare up, and are unable to find any sort of relief, especially while you are in your home, then you may want to start investigating if you have a mold outbreak in your house.
Musty Smell in the Air
Oftentimes, mold will release a smell that you will be able to recognize in your home. If you start to smell a musty scent in the air, that is a good indicator that you may have mold somewhere in your home. If you smell a musty scent in your home, you should not wait. Make sure to investigate your house thoroughly, to find the mold problem in your home.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REMOVE THE MOLD IMMEDIATELY?

Causes Structural Damage in the Home
Mold damages almost every part of your house. It can cause significant damage to the structures that are holding up your house. This could result in the deterioration of the framing and ultimately result in the collapsing of a ceiling or the caving in of walls. Mold can also cause significant damage in the HVAC systems in your home. This can create a lot of damage in your home, as mold is extremely difficult to remove from the ducts, as well as can lower the air quality in your home.
Causes Health Problems
There are many health problems that are associated with mold in your home. Mold in the home can cause asthma-like symptoms which could include difficulty breathing, lung irritation, and wheezing. Not only can it cause these health issues, but they can also result in allergic reactions. Some of these common symptoms include itchy eyes, sore throat, cough, runny nose or congestion.
