There are two very different scenarios when it comes to mold. Mold inspection in MA can help in both situations. In one scenario, you can see the mold growing, in the other you may not be able to see the mold, it may be hidden from view. There are some indicators that are present in both cases that may point to a mold infestation.

The Signs

There are a few things that you may notice in your property that can mean that you are dealing with a mold infestation:

  • A musty scent in the property
  • A recent or current leak
  • Condensation
  • Visual evidence of mold

Mold has a very specific scent that is hard to miss. It smells like wet cardboard or can be described as a “musty” scent. The smell maybe isolated to a specific area or it may be very noticeable from the minute you step into the property. That pungent scent can mean that mold is blooming somewhere in your property.

After a Leak

Moisture is molds breeding ground. If you have recently had a leak or water seepage you should check and then recheck over the course of a month to ensure that there is no mold growth. Any area that remains moist is a potential spot for mold growth.

You May See It
