“Musty smell? Not feeling
well? It could be mold.”
When should you test for mold?
Mold is not always obvious in a home. Is there a musty or "funny" smell? Is there water damage visible or reports of past water leaks or water intrusion? Water intrusion or bursting/leaking pipes can cause hidden water damage, including potentially mold! Is there a damp or wet basement or crawlspace? Can you visually see mold or mildew?
If you see any of this in a home you are buying or say "yes" to any of these conditions in your own home, it is best to test for mold.
If it looks like mold it should probably be treated as mold. Therefore, I focus on air quality testing to test for not only what looks like mold but also for potential unseen mold. I can conduct air quality testing that not only tests for mold but also common VOCs and formaldehyde.
