While the internet will tell you that you just need bleach or dishwashing soap, mold removal is not something to try to take care of on your own. Due to the sensitive nature of the job, to protect yourself, it’s safest to call in the professionals if you feel like there is mold in your home or office.
Black mold can be found in many different colors, but it’s often dark, as one would gather by the name. It usually has spots that are black or brown colored; sometimes orange and flecked with white. Black mold oftentimes has a fuzzy appearance, but definitely not the cute fuzzies!
If the temperature and humidity are ideal, mold can grow in as little time as 24-48 hours. However, it typically takes 3 days before spores start spreading through your home or office and 18-21 days before you can actually see it.
To try to decipher if the black mold is toxic, you can look at the consistency of the mold and what color it is. We discussed black mold in the previous question, noting that it’s usually dark-colored and possible fuzz. Toxic black mold can look a bit slimy or have brown or orange fuzz. Toxic mold is typically a grayish color.
Mold smells can vary depending on the type, but most people describe them as musty and stale — somewhat similar to old socks.
White mold is a fungus that can appear in different colors, depending on the type of surface it infects. It thrives extremely well when there’s high moisture around like showers and leaky walls for instance.

Painting over mold will only make your problems worse. The paint could chip, peel, or bubble- all signs that there is still growth underneath the paint.
If you notice black or green spots all over your carpet, it is time to call in the professionals. The area underneath might have developed discoloration before anywhere else so keep an eye out for this as well.
A high mold count would be anywhere from 13,000 to 49,999.
