If you suspect that you may have a mold problem in your home, the best thing to do is to call a professional mold removal company to perform a mold inspection, confirm that you have a mold problem and come up with a comprehensive plan to remove the mold.
Toxic mold is not always black in color; toxic mold can come in any shape and color and consistency. If there is a mold problem in a home, it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. That means coming up with a safe plan to contain and remove the mold infestation.
The most critical time to have a mold inspection performed is when you think you may have a mold issue but are not sure. Do not even waste your time with those hokey mold testing kits that they sell in the hardware store as they will often give a false positive.
Mold is not inherently evil and toxic; almost every home has an amount of mold in it, most of the time the mold is minuscule and will not affect the residents. The only time mold becomes an issue in a home is when it grows to an unhealthy level.
The benefit of using a professional to perform your mold inspection is that they have a trained eye and will be able to properly look for all the signs that you would not notice on your own.
