How to Test Mold Levels Yourself
If you have even the slightest concern about mold levels in your home, you should take steps to test for it. Mold grows over time, so the earlier you can detect it, the easier and less expensive it will be to remove it.
As mentioned earlier, a musty smell and/or congestion or allergies can be your body telling you something is wrong.
Physically, look for things like bulging of walls, tiles cracking or coming loose, softness in floors or walls, or blistering paint are a few of the things to look for.
Also have a look around for any visible signs. Mold can show up in corners and around windows. It is attracted to damp, moist areas like under sinks, in and around showers, or places that recently had water issues like basements.
If you find mold growth, you should try to get a sample and have it tested.
