By inspection and testing. The most practical way to find a mold problem is by visual inspection for mold growth and by using a thermal camera or moisture detection equipment to locate the source of a suspicious odor. If you see mold or if there is an earthy or musty smell, you should assume a mold problem exists. Other clues are signs of excess moisture or the worsening of allergy-like symptoms. We Look for visible mold growth (may appear cottony, velvety, granular, or leathery and have varied colors of white, gray, brown, black, yellow, green). Mold often appears as discoloration, staining, or fuzzy growth on the surface of building materials or furnishings. When mold is visible, testing is recommended. We search areas with noticeable mold odors. We look for signs of excess moisture or water damage. We look for water leaks, standing water, water stains and condensation problems.
