Mold in DC Homes

Worried about mold in your Washington DC or Northern Virginia home? The truth is that every home has a little bit of household mold.  Mold is a common type of fungus that can grow almost anywhere under the right conditions. When is a mold condition abnormal? Look for the warning signs that a home has a mold issue, and find out how to remediate bad mold.

Average household mold

Microscopic cells called spores are released into the environment and spread through the air, attaching to just about everything from walls to skin.  We bring them into our homes with us, or they migrate in alone through open doors and windows, vents and HVAC systems. When purchasing or selling DC real estate, be aware that no home is completely mold free, but do familiarize yourself with the indications of mold problems.

How mold problems begin and grow

Regular cleaning can keep problems at bay, but once in a while, the right conditions combine to make mold grow and flourish. They are:

  • Moisture
  • Warmth
  • Organic food sources

These conditions are typically found in bathrooms, where dampness is almost constant, in kitchens, and in basements where humidity and dampness create a very welcoming atmosphere! Humidity levels in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia can get high during certain times of the year. Keep an eye on red flag areas to make sure you catch mold issues early.
