You know that saying “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire” ? It applies to mold. It’s also true that when there’s a little mold….there’s more. The spot you see on your bathroom grout, that area by the baseboard…those are just the tip of the iceberg. Mold doesn’t just grow on the surface. it starts where it starts and grows. So that little bit you see on the surface–it’s nothing compared to what’s inside.
Have you ever seen a blue cheese that only had mold on the outside?
I rest my case.
But seriously…if you can tell you have a little mold, a professional is going to be able to find more, maybe even a whole lot more. So it might be a good idea to have a mold inspection before you remodel, or get your house ready to put on the market. That way, at least, you know what you’re up against.
