Mold/Black mold


Air test
Air test  
I've recently moved into a rent house while I  waiting on my new house to be build. My room had a musty smell so I did a home air test. I have attached the picture of the results, after about 4 days. Can you tell if it's black mold?

Hi Jessica, it is difficult for me to say which mold it is from the picture. It is definitely mold and if that grew just in a few days I would not stay in that room any longer. You can take your sample to the local board of health and see if they can determine what it is. Try to find another temporary place to live as soon as possible. Good luck, Daniel

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!
