Should I have my home tested for Mold?
If visible mold is present then it should be removed immediately (Do you know what mold eats? Almost anything!). If mold is suspected but not visibly detectable then a professional should be called, and an inspection including but not limited to moisture, temperature and humidity readings should be performed. After an inspection it may be necessary to collect air samples, this would reveal mold colonies and determine the level of contamination throughout the building if any. Sampling for airborne mold spores can also indicate whether the molds are typical of indoor/outdoor air or unusual to the environment. Following these steps will properly get rid of your mold and its source.
