Most of the time the best way to find mold is to see it but, how can you find it if you can’t see it? When mold is left in your home for a long amount of time it can affect not only your home but also you and your family’s health. If you don’t see any mold in your home, some of the warning signs will include allergy like symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, difficulty breathing, and lots more! This is definitely something you don’t want to go through especially if it can make you sick like that, imagine what it is doing to your home.


Mold symptoms do vary from person to person and will effect everyone differently. Mold will for sure bother someone more if they have asthma versus someone who doesn’t. There are different types of mold and some can be very toxic to any human and can even cause serious life-threatening illnesses if not treated fast. Symptoms of mold allergies are all of the following: coughing, sneezing, sore & itching throat, runny nose and congestion, headaches, wheezing, watery eyes, and itchy or irritated skin. If these symptoms are caused by mold and you suspect so, try  leaving your home and go outdoors for a period of time and see if those symptoms consist or get better. If you feel better outside, it’s likely that it’s something in your home that is bothering you and your health. Also, if your home is doing this to your health, it’s doing damage to your home too at the same time.

Warning Signs In Your Home
