Signs of Mold Growth on Drywall

You are currently viewing Signs of Mold Growth on Drywall

When your home has water damage, it’s very likely that your home will also experience mold growth. If the water damage is serious, then within 24 hours, mold can begin to grow on your property after the water has soaked through to reach the drywall. If you have pipes in your home that are leaking, they can trap moisture in the walls, resulting in water damage and likely mold growth.

Knowing the amount of damage mold can cause, it is important for you to know how to detect mold in your home. However, it can sometimes be difficult to spot mold because it can be hidden. One case of this is mold growth behind your home’s walls.

Here’s what to look for when finding mold behind the walls:

Discoloration and Stains

Surface Changes and Deterioration
