When it comes to taking care of your home in south Florida, mold is one of the biggest offenders. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to mitigate the growth of mold in your home.
Sight and smell may give you a good indication of whether or not you have a black mold problem; black mold tends to have a strong, musty smell, and of course, it displays a trademark black color. If you believe you have black mold growth in an area of your home after these initial inspections, you have two options: professional mold testing or do-it-yourself testing. Because Florida has such a humid climate, it is very easy for mold to grow indoors.
Steps to take
Common areas to test for black mold are basements, crawlspaces, bathrooms, and kitchens where moisture and condensation may gather regularly. A water source is the first requirement for mold growth, so any damp, humid areas of the home are often susceptible. Checking your home for mold after being absent for a long time or after a big storm is important. Flooding is the biggest cause of indoor mold. One of the newest ways to test for mold is the use of in-home test kits that can detect black mold.
