How do I Identify Mold?
It is very difficult to treat something if you do not know where it is. If you have a leaky pipe or roof that has gone untreated for any descent length of time, chances are you have a mold problem. You can identify the green or black spots in obvious places. Anything over 10 square feet should be referred to a mold remediation team for specialized treatment. However, if your roof has been leaking there is a good chance you have mold behind the paneling, drywall, baseboards or wallpaper. You may not always see it, but you can probably smell it. If your home smells damp and displays a penetrating odor, you need to check it out.
