Mold is not always immediately visible, nor does it always pose a health risk right away. As such, if you suspect you may have a mold problem—however small it may be—you’re likely to be tempted to ignore it for now. But doing so can only cause the problem to become worse.
One of the most important factors to consider when it comes to mold is that no form of mold is healthy. Some strains are more toxic than others, but to keep a truly healthy household, you don’t want any present. The most common cause of mold buildup is excess moisture and relative humidity levels above 60% for an extended period of time. Do you really need to schedule a mold assessment though if you have these risk factors?
