You May Be Suprised By Where You Can Find Water Related Problems In Your Home

Mar 18, 2008
Almost everyone who has a home at one time or another should do a room-by-room inspection for signs of mold and water damage. Most of us have listened about toxic mold on the news in one way or another and just how detrimental it might be to our health, however that is not the only issue with mold.

Although you manage to exterminate it, it can still stir up irritation reactions in a few individuals since the spores will still be airborne and their bodies still recognize those to be something they are forced to fight against. Taking some allergy medication can relieve some symptoms, but no one needs to use anti-histamines frequently if you do not have to.

There can be a few signs that can show you that you ought to look for mold in different areas of your household, but you might not entirely realize what you need to be looking for. Look around the residence and any room that may be inherently damp ought to be inspected closely.

Unless you have performed a renovation recently and you have totally waterproofed the bathroom, then you could think of it this as a probable breeding ground for mildew. A few other rooms that are inherently moist are the kitchen, utility room, and the basement.

You need to inspect for indications of dampness within the utility room because it is likely to remain moist due to the amount of wet clothing and evaporating of water that remains in there all the time.

Your dryer ought to be properly exhausted to the outside if it has not been yet, unless it happens to be a model with no vent. You should clean damp fabric items immediately and do not place dry clothes on top of these, either. You will most likely ignore them and they might turn moldy after around two days.

The kitchen is another room that you need to be concerned with. Spots around the floor and sink that are not waterproof and especially the upper walls ought to be suspected. The vapor that is emitted by the stove while you are cooking harms the ceiling and might discolor it over time, so you should have steam outlet put in above the stove to assist in preventing this.

These outlets should also be placed in other wet areas of the household, especially the lavatory. This might prevent you from needing to re-coat the ceiling as many times as you would typically need to and even keep you from having to replace sheetrock.
