What Causes Mold?
All buildings have microscopic mold spores, no matter how clean they are. These spores are constantly circulating, and under the right conditions, they can multiply and thrive, evolving into what you commonly think of when picturing mold.
Once established, mold colonies can not only spread to other parts of your home or office but can lead to potentially to several health issues, including aggravated asthma attacks, respiratory irritation, allergies, or worse.
What are the right conditions? Mold spores thrive in warm, humid areas with low light, making areas like basements, attics, and closets common problem areas.

What Is the Difference Between Mold Testing and Mold Inspection?
Mold testing attempts to identify the type of mold occupying a space. Professionals recommend testing when you have seen signs of mold. For instance, if you’re uncertain whether a mark on the wall is just a black stain or black mold, a mold test takes the guesswork out of the equation.
A mold inspection involves a mold inspector or expert searching for evidence of past or current mold growth and its cause. Mold inspections often include mold testing as part of the process. Situations where a mold problem can occur, and our experts recommend a mold inspection include:
- If you see mold
- Following mold remediation
- Building was unoccupied for an extended time
- New home purchase
- Water damage
