How do I tell if I have a mold problem?
Testing for mold is not necessary. You can typically see or smell mold. Mold comes in many different colors. It may appear as small black, yellow, green or white specks along your bathroom or basement walls. In some cases, mold may not be visible. You will, however, be able to smell it. Mold has a very distinctive musty odor. If you smell a suspicious odor, trace it to the source. You may discover mold growing behind a wall or under a carpet.
