Molds are undesirable when they grow where we don’t want
them, such as in homes. Over 270 species of mold have been identified as
living in new jersey homes. Molds that grow inside may be different from the
ones found outdoors.
Where to Look for Mold
Mold grows on organic materials, such as paper, dirt,
wood and soap scum. Mold grows on moist materials, so mold growth is likely
in areas wet by water leaks, flooding, humidity levels above about 70
percent and condensation. Any flooded area that was not completely dried
within about one day is likely to have mold growth. Walls need to be opened
and rapidly dried to prevent mold growth. Any area that is stained from
water should be examined for mold growth. Peeling paint may be an indication
of wet walls.
Moisture seeping through concrete walls and floors will cause
moist conditions likely to cause mold growth on or in walls, carpeting and
materials stored in the basement. Mold often grows under cabinets, behind
base-boards, inside walls, in carpet padding and under vinyl wall coverings.
An unvented clothes dryer creates a very humid, warm environment conducive
to mold growth. Closets may have mold growth if clothing is damp or if there
is a cool outside wall in the closet. Also, there is a chance mold might be
growing behind furniture, particularly against an outside wall.
Mold will not normally be found in furnace or air-conditioning ducts unless
they were flooded because the heated or air-conditioned air is very dry.
Moisture coming through a basement floor or wall may deposit a light-colored
salt and other minerals that are sometimes thought to be mold. The deposits
should quickly dissolve and disappear when wet with water if they are a
Air cleaners will not solve a mold problem. A high-efficiency
air filter that removes mold spores may reduce the number of spores in the
air, but mold spores rapidly settle onto surfaces, such as the floor, where
air filters cannot remove them. Filters may reduce the number of mold spores
in the air but are not substitutes for removing the mold. Air cleaners that
produce ozone are not effective at eliminating mold. Ozone is a lung
irritant that should not be in an occupied space.
Exposure to mold
Exposure to mold can cause cold-like symptoms, respiratory
problems, nasal and sinus congestion, watery eyes, sore throat, coughing and
skin irritations, and can trigger asthma attacks. Because some mold spores
are very small and can easily be breathed deeply into the lungs, it is not
safe to live in houses with high mold levels. Exposure to high mold spore
levels can cause development of an allergy to mold. People can react to mold
whether it is living or dead.
Everyone should minimize their exposure to mold. Children, the elderly,
pregnant women and people with existing respiratory sensitivities are at
higher risk for adverse health effects from mold. Some people are affected
when exposed to very little mold, while others may show no adverse health
symptoms when exposed to mold.
If you can smell a musty odor or see mold, you have a mold problem. Reliable
sampling for mold can be expensive since it requires special equipment and
training. Testing is not generally recommended as a first step.
What Preventative Measures
Can You Take To Protect Yourself Against Mold?
To help control mold allergies, you can:
Reduce indoor humidty below 50% - this can be achieved by your properly
controlled air conditioner- Call and ask us!
Use exhaust fans in bathrooms to reduce the humidity levels.
Use mold-killing solutions in bathrooms and shower stalls, on bathroom
tiles, shower curtains, around the bathtub and toilet tank.
Use paint with a mold inhibitor, or add a mold inhibitor to standard paint
for use in baths.
Replace bathroom carpets with tile or linoleum.
Wash shower curtains monthly, with detergent and chlorine bleach.
Check tree bark for mold before using it in a home fireplace or wood-burning
Use a chemical moisture remover in closets.
Never put away wet shoes or clothing.
Use exhaust fans in the kitchen to remove cooking steam and food vapors.
Repair all water leaks promptly.
Use a dehumidifier to keep the relative humidity below 40 percent to deter
Have Air Condiditoning and Heating ductwork cleaned annually
Install a high-performance electrostatic filter in your central air
conditioning and heating system to trap mold spores and inhibit mold.
Never put damp clothing in closets or drawers.
Have AC coolant levels checked, on indoor units, to prevent condensation
accumulating when coolant levels get low.
