Hello
Please find attached few photos.
Can you please tell is it mold or something else.
Best regards

Answer
Hi Ranjeev, It could be mold but I can't tell for sure just by looking at the pictures. It is water damage and usually water damage cause mold. You may be able to buy a "mold test kit" somewhere and test it for mold. I'd suggest doing that if you can. Good Luck with it. Daniel

Expertise

I am probably able to help you understand the mold problem you are having, why it is happening and what to do about it! Most mold problems small, thus easy and simple to remediate. Large mold problems are a different case! They can cause an entire home to be unhabitable!

Experience

I am a residentail contractor with 29 years or experience remodeling, repairing and building homes. Throughout many of those I handled insurance damage restoration and remediation projects.
