Common hot spots for toxic black mold

Black mold loves moisture, which is why the following rooms are the most common places for mold growth:

  • Bathrooms
  • Basements
  • Attics
  • Kitchens
  • Bedrooms
  • Cold storage rooms
  • Crawlspaces

However, toxic black mold is not always easy to spot. It can form behind walls and underneath tiles and carpets, invisible to the unsuspecting occupant. That’s why you need expert to test and help.

How does a certified mold inspection work?

During a typical home inspection for mold, the inspector will

  • Examine the area of concern,
  • Take moisture readings,
  • Locate sources of excess moisture,
  • Ask questions,
  • Conduct any additional mold testing,
  • Evaluate the overall extent of the contamination, and
  • Take any additional tests and readings.

If necessary, the inspector will take an indoor air quality test to determine the exact species of mold present and the concentrations in which they are found – information that’s essential to developing an effective mold removal strategy.

In most cases, major problems in homes are revealed only after a professional mold inspection is performed. These problems include past flooding, leaking pipes and roofs, serious water damage, cracks in the foundation, poor ventilation, bad insulation and high humidity.

 

Mold inspections are essential to home maintenance

Regularly checking your home for mold (for example, every spring when moisture intrusion is most likely to happen) can save you money by identifying sources of excess moisture early on, before they lead to costly water damage and toxic black mold.
