Another question from the BYEBYEMOLD Archive
Yes, of course. Just as you don’t normally see the agents that cause other infections, the source of mold may not be visible.
The spores themselves are very small. Plus there are parts of your house you can not see, such as inside walls, under carpeting, crawlspaces, attics. Anywhere that water can leak into, or anywhere that humidity can be trapped is a fertile place for mold to grow–whether or not you can see it. Just because you don’t see it does not mean it isn’t there. On the other hand, you are likely to smell a musty smell before you actually see the mold.
If you’re in California, you might want to give us a call and see about getting an assessment from Byebyemold.
