As a homeowner, encountering mold growing on some spots in your house is something that you must have grown accustomed to. This is even more so if you happen to build a house that is in a condition that promotes mold growth. Any number of reasons can be the source of this; the house could lack attention paid to it in its hygiene level or the house stands in an area where humidity is something rather difficult to put in check. Mold thrives in warm zone with high moisture level and plenty of water. Installing air conditioner units can help alleviate infestation but the same units can also be a thriving environment for mold to develop.
Types of Mold living among you are countless. Their appearance can also be misleading as one genus of mold can look alike with one another. Another thing that makes it difficult to identify mold is its color and size. Mold can manifest as something as little as spot at first, barely noticeable, before it spreads into full-fledged infestation. Its color can also vary from one type to another. Orange Mold, for example, is orange at first but soon manifests as something red or pinkish in look later on.
But one thing remains the same: mold needs to be rid of your house before it causes more damage than you can handle. Plus, some mold can be a serious health hazard but the mere sight of mold alone should be enough a reason for you to clean the area of it. Mold may not be a pathogen that leads to death upon exposure but the effects its spores can open you to other serious complications. Take Mold Rash, for example. The itchiness the mold causes you can lead to secondary infection of bacteria from over-scratching the affected areas.
