Mold - Very smallest Leak is Where it Starts

small leaks is that they go undetected for so long that mold has plenty of time to take hold. In fact, you may not even be aware of the leak until a musty odor creeps in and fills your home. Depending on where the leak originates, you may not know for months. For example, imagine a tiny leak in the basement. The moisture and dark environment make for the perfect mold breeding ground. But, how often do you find yourself down below? Weeks? Months? Years? When you do descend into the depths of your home, that telltale smell announces the presence of mold - and it all began with a tiny little leak.

What's the big deal about a little leak and a lot of mold? At its worst, mold can be toxic. People with allergies and weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to health problems related to mold exposure. Respiratory ailments, allergies, headaches, and other symptoms adversely affect those living in the mold-infested home.

In addition to the health effects, mold is unsightly and unpleasant. It is also destructive. For example, as a living organism, mold requires a food source and guess what it consumes? Mold consumes and damages drywall, wallpaper, carpet fibers, upholstery, paint, ceiling tiles, building materials, and any other materials that it grows upon.

Apart from the health issues this can cause, it also destroys valuable assets of your home. So what exactly is the way to prevent this? Factoring in the fact that it might not be noticed until it starts showing the after effects?
