Water issues such as moisture problems or previous water leaks can cause mold in your house. One sign is if you begin to see stains or discoloration on walls or floors. Leaks from sinks or pipes can cause water to begin to mold as well. If you have experienced leakage or flooding in the past it’s important to inspect your house for any possible mold signs.
