Eek! You knew mold could be serious, but never thought it could happen to you! Discovering you have a severe case of mold damage can do a lot of damage to your roof and can cost a pretty penny. The best thing you can do is to know the warning signs of mold so you can prevent damage to the home you’ve worked so hard on keeping beautiful. Here’s are the warning signs you should look for:
Strange mold/mildew odor
We’ve all smelt that smell before. Like walking into your grandma’s basement that no one has been in since ‘03. The smell of mold damage or mildew damage is very apparent and pungent. The smell could be described as a musty smell, like clothes that were left in the washer for too long.
This is a major warning sign that you should look for. If you are smelling this odor, it’s a good idea to check on your roofs to determine if you have a mold problem.
Discoloration of the roof
If the paint around your roof or the roof’s shingles are starting to look dark and spotty, it could be an indication of mold damage. Step outside and take a good look at your roof. Is it looking discolored and even looking a little darker than usual? It could be a sign of mold damage.
Water marks inside the home
Have you gone to take a relaxing nap just to look at your ceiling and see water marks? So much for that relaxing nap! One of the most important warning signs you should look for are water marks since they can often indicate mold damage from your roof. These water spots can happen if your roof has developed holes or gaps that are leading water to come inside of your home. You don’t want to let mold damage ruin your ceilings, too. It’s best to stop the mold issue before it causes a larger problem such as this.
Now that you know some of the signs of mold damage, it’s time to determine if you have a problem. Taking care of and cleaning off mold can sound scary - but if you hire a professional who knows what they’re doing, they can take care of it before it becomes a bigger problem.
