What To Do If You Have Mold In Your House

Mold. One big bad word that can be pretty scary in person, if you have mold in your home. This type of mold that grows in areas of your house can cause a litany of problematic allergy symptoms to deal with. Some of those include stuffy nasal passages, sinus pain, headaches, and even respiratory issues. This is a common problem in many homes especially in the Florida area where the humidity is so high almost year round. Dealing with mold, especially toxic or black mold is something you should do right away for the health and wellness of your family. If you are unsure whether or not you have this problem ask yourself these three important questions.

Question #1: Do You Smell Mold?

Mold has that musty stale smell that is unmistakable. If you start to suspect, but even can’t see some of the mold, it’s time to call a mold specialist who can accurately diagnose the problem in your home. Mold likes to grow in tricky places hidden behind and under flooring, walls, or even in the air ducts in your home. You may not see it at first, but you’ll start to smell it eventually.

Question #2: Do You See Signs Of Visible Mold?

Mold becomes easy to spot especially in basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and attics. That’s usually where the most moisture can accumulate in a home. It can even start to grow behind old wallpaper, so you don’t want to ignore it. Visible mold can be black, green, or even yellow (ewww).

Question #3: Have You Had Water Leaks In The Past?

Sometimes the heavy summer downpours can show you where the leaks are in your home. If you have water seeping in anywhere in your home, that’s going to make it more susceptible to mold. Patch up those leaky spots first and then get right to tackling the problem of the mold left behind as soon as possible.

If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, it’s time to call a company that specializes in getting rid of mold in your home. In order to deal with the allergy symptoms you or your family may have been experiencing for awhile while the mold has been festering, you can benefit from some time in the salt rooms the Salt Suite provides. We are a halotherapy center that can treat allergy issues just by breathing in the salty air of the rooms we have that mimic salt caves.

“During a typical adult session customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The micro particles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
