We smell mold. It is agitating my sinuses. But, I cannot find it. What do I do?
Mold is vicious. It can hide above ceilings, behind walls, in furniture, under carpet. If you suspect mold, but cannot find it, we recommend having air samples collected to determine if there is a mold contamination hiding in your property. If the samples indicate a problem, then it’s time to move into an investigator role, just like a CSI Agent. Using a moisture meter, infrared camera, and other tools, a mold inspector can track down the colony or colonies.
CAUTION: Avoid a massive release of mold spores. When checking behind walls, wall paper, ceiling tiles, the inspector must be very cautious not to expose the living area by opening up the areas where mold hides and releasing spores.
