What Are the Signs of Mold and When Should I Test?

1) Humidity levels above 60%: Signs of mold can begin when indoor humidity is sustained above 60% for weeks at a time. If you suspect trouble, this would be an indication that you would need to contact a professional mold specialist.

2) When you think your home or office is making you sick: When people think their office or home is making them sick and they feel better when away.

3) When thinking about selling your home: Mold testing is recommended so problems can be eliminated before entering an agreement to sale a home. More home buyers are requiring mold testing prior to closing than ever before. Signs of mold can jeopardize a sale.

4) When there is a musty smell: A musty smell is a sign of mold growth. It’s always good to eliminate mold growth in its early stages before it becomes a health problem or a costly remediation project. When selling a home a musty smell can be a turn-off for buyers.

5) After mold remediation/cleaning: Post testing should be done after a space or building has been remediated and cleaned to ensure the remediation company that preformed the work did a thorough job. The company performing the sampling should be independent of the company performing the remediation to ensure no more signs of mold are present.

Small Gutters Lead to Problems with Mold and Health Effects

I will never forget the look on the face of a young mother I met one bright September morning in September 2003. Her two story brick home appeared to be solidly built and was situated at the end of a narrow, winding street facing a golf course. The terrain appeared to slope away from the house – a good indication that the drainage was working properly. She had done her homework, too, and had spent many hours researching the web looking for a solution to her problem. The only problem was…she didn’t really know what was wrong. And that confusion, frustration, and helplessness was written all over her face...
