You can't always see mold! You may have already guessed to look at obvious places such as your bathroom and basement but there can be many hidden sources of mold in your home. Particularly, if you've had plumbing problems or leaks in your roof, mold may grow and release spores from places such as behind drywall, under carpet or carpet padding, or in wood

Depending on the type and extent of mold that is present, mold can cause symptoms including

  • Allergies
  • Shortness of breath or even an asthma attack
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Headache, anxiety, depression
  • Immune system disturbances and fatigue

How do you test for mold in your home? What types are dangerous?
