Mold will often grow in areas of a house that have already experienced water damage, especially in the wet Florida climate. Mold can cause many different serious and even life-threatening health issues. A lot of them are respiratory problems, like pneumonia and asthma attacks, and some people even have serious allergic reactions to mold. Infants and the elderly are especially at risk.

Sometimes mold damage can be small and hard to notice at first. Mold can be found in attics, bathrooms, basements, ceilings, walls, kitchens, even in ventilation and air conditioning systems. Here’s our guide to help you spot and repair mold damage in Jacksonville.

  1. Spotting the mold damage

Sometimes the first way you’ll know your home has mold damage is because the area starts to have a musty, sour ‘basement’ smell. The first place to look for mold damage is in an area that has experienced water damage or where moisture gathers. Mold can be any number of colors, including brown, black, green, orange, pink, or white. It will have a damp, muddy look. If the mold has been there for a long time, there may even be mushrooms growing out of it. Sometimes, the smell may be your only clue that there is a mold damage problem.


  1. Identify the cause of the mold if you can

Mold damage may be a sign of a leak or burst pipe that you didn’t know about before. If that’s the case, shut off your water to prevent it from getting worse. Sometimes, however, you might not be able to figure out why you have mold damage.
