If you smell mold, see mold, or feel the effects of mold, you need to do something, otherwise it can have detrimental impacts on your health.

It doesn't take much for our living spaces to be infested with mold. Add a little bit of moisture and a few hours and you have the perfect recipe for mold growth. If you can reduce moisture quickly, then the chances of mold taking off reduces dramatically.

In this episode with Jason Earle, we cover how to check your living spaces for mold, and what long term impacts can happen to you if you don't take care of the mold problem.
