How can you tell if that is MOLD?
Sometimes it's difficult to tell if that funny looking substance is, in fact, mold. There are a few telltale signs that should help you to figure out if it IS mold:
- Color - Mold has a distinctive look and color. Mold will often cause discoloration - and mold can be many different colors such as purple, black, red, orange or yellow.
- Odor - Some molds can't be seen, but there is a telltale musty smell that will alert you to a mold infestation. Areas where there has been moisture or leaks are prime areas for mold, even if you can't see or smell any YET.
