Mold Inspection: Your Mold Questions Answered

Not sure why mold appears? Want to know why it grows indoors? Let’s look at a few common questions about mold.
Four Common Mold Inspection Questions Answered
When you have mold concerns, your Green Home Solutions representative can help you understand what you’re dealing with—and what to do next. Here are a few questions we get asked most frequently during the mold inspection process:
- What is mold? Mold is a type of microscopic fungus. In the wild, it’s a natural part of decomposition. In your home, it’s a more serious concern. It grows in thin, multicellular strands called “hyphae,” which form mold colonies. When mold colonies are dense and thriving, they’re visible to the human eye.
- Why does mold grow indoors? Mold requires moisture, oxygen, and food materials to survive. Indoors, it’s typically triggered by a buildup of moisture, such as flooding, a burst pipe, or even excess humidity. That’s why it’s so important to maintain a dry, ventilated indoors.
- Should I be worried about mold? If mold is actively growing in your home, it’s always a concern. Once mold has adequate conditions to survive, it can cause swift and significant structural damage to a building. It can also contribute to health concerns. This is why rapid, precise remediation is crucial.
- How can I tell if mold is present? Mold sometimes gives off a pronounced musty smell, similar to wet earth or rotting. You may also see visible mold growth or its effects, such as discolored walls or stained surfaces. For definitive confirmation of mold issues, you’ll want a mold inspection.
