How do I know if MOLD is growing inside my living space?


If you can smell a musty odor or see mold, you have a mold problem. Reliable sampling for mold can be expensive since it requires special equipment and training. Mold testing is not generally recommended as a first step. If you feel or smell musty odors indoors, if your property have experienced a roof water leak, plumbing water leak or a flood past or present then mold testing is warranted.

​​Now Remember:

Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a humid or wet surface and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Mold produces allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold.


No Home or Business is Perfect: Purchasing a home? Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter. It is inappropriate to demand that seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items. But if the Home Smell musty and you noticed water stains in the ceiling or walls you will need a Mold Assessment before you buy. Musty Smell = Mold growing. However, two important notes you most understand relative to the visual inspection results:


  • "Construction": It is common for homes of any age to have had repairs done, and some repairs may appear less than structural from the standpoint of how it has fared through the years with the materials that were used. New paint? be in the look out they maybe covering water stains on the ceiling or mold stains. You can expect problems to become apparent as time passes.

  • "Ongoing monitoring": Your mold inspection is like a "snapshot" of the property's condition on a specific date and time. Those conditions will change, so you need to keep inspecting your property during the time you own it. Verify that the air conditioning condensate water is draining properly to the exterior after operation on a hot day. Verify that the performances of the HVAC systems are adequate. Verify that the dryer vent is exhausting properly. Verify that the gutters and downspouts are performing during a hard rain. Verify that no water is ponding around the exterior perimeter of the house after a hard rain. Verify that no leaking is present in the attic area during a hard rain. Inspect any of the other concerns that were mentioned in this report.
