HARMFUL MOLD AND MILDEW
LOOKING FOR MOLD
Mold is not prominent, therefore very hard to see. However, their presence fills the air and we tend to smell them first even before seeing them. Mold emit damp and dank odor which tickles our nostrils and make us sneeze and wheeze. The air filled with mold makes us feel hazy and unhealthy especially when breathed in a confirmed space.
To identify mold infested areas of the house, people with keen nose can actually track their locations using smell.
Mold itself can be of many different colors. Though it is commonly white, it could also be black, gray-brown, and gray-green. They colonize areas around corners, rafters, and crawls, though they could be anywhere that is very damp, and spread fast in humid conditions.

To some extent, mechanical ventilation can be introduced through use of dehumidifiers, air conditioners or fans to improve the airflow and extract moisture from the air.
