Press Release Summary: Everyone knows that mold can be dangerous to your health, but most do not realize how tricky it can be to realize that you have a mold problem. Unfortunately, some families only realize they have mold in their house after they begin to feel the negative health effects.

Press Release Body: Wake Forest, NC - To help families determine if they have a mold problem before it becomes out of hand, the remediation experts of Water Damage Team have collected the following list of top 10 signs that you may have a mold problem.

Strange Smell
Mold has a foul smell that you should be able to notice. If a certain spot in your home smells odd, check around anywhere excess moisture might be present.

Appearance of Mold
It may seem obvious, but sometimes mold will appear in places you wouldn\'t normally look. Every once in awhile, check under your sinks and around windows and doors for possible signs of mold.

Peeling Paint
Peeling paint means there is moisture in your walls, and the paint will no longer stick. Moisture in the walls is a sign for possible mold as well as structural damage.

Health Symptoms
Mold can be hazardous to you health in many ways. One type of health issue mold can give you is allergy-like symptoms. If you have a sudden onslaught of allergies in a certain room, check for mold.

Wet Spots
If you see any spot on the outside of your home that looks wet, it may mean there is moisture and possible mold in the structure.

Decaying Wood
If wood in the structure of your home seems to be decaying, there is probably excess moisture present. Mold can grow inside holes of wood and spread easily without you noticing.

Leaky Ceiling/Roof
A leaky ceiling or roof means water is traveling through layers of building components. When you have your ceiling repaired, check for mold in your walls so it doesn\'t spread and create a worse problem.

Chalky Substance on Walls
A binding agent in walls will sometimes break down under moist conditions, leaving a chalky residue on your wall. This is a clear sign of water damage and/or mold problems.

Standing Water
If you find a puddle of water somewhere in your home and you know you haven\'t spilt something, look up. A leak may just be forming and hopefully before mold was created.

Drywall Tape Loosening
If your drywall tape is coming loose, water has almost definitely gotten into the structure of your home and you should check for mold and repair damages as soon as possible.
