A leaking sink creates Mold.

Below are some common signs to watch out for that could indicate you have mold growing in your house.

Smelling a Mold Odor

When you have mold growing hidden away in your house, often a moldy smell might be the only clue that it's there. Don't ignore mold odors if you can't see any mold. You should thoroughly inspect your home or hire a professional to do so.

Signs of Water Problems 

Some signs that you may have a moisture problem include: Water stains or discoloration on walls, floors or ceilings in your house. Another sign of a moisture problem is surface abnormalities like peeling, bubbling or cracking of the paint or wallpaper. If your walls are bowed, bulging or warped it probably means moisture has gotten into them. 

Water Leaks

The above signs of water problems are usually created by leaks. Mold growth from leaks can often be hidden. If the leak was behind a wall or other surface then the mold will probably be hidden behind the surface too. 

Past Flooding

If your house has been flooded in the past then it's likely that mold would've started to grow.  Any mold would probably be growing in places where the flood water remained the longest such as in the basement. Floods can often create mold growing out of view behind walls or under floors.
