Look for signs of dampness, including water stains, warped wood, or blistering or peeling paint. Mold is often active in areas where pipes are located inside walls or under floors.
Other frequent places for mold growth are near water leaks around air conditioner drainage, and low places where overflow water collects after a flood.
And, we always look for mold in any dark, damp areas where there are substances with plenty of cellulose, such as on wood, drywall, insulation, or under carpets.
