Hidden mold is a serious issue and can be the cause of major health problems,
as well as structural damage to homes or buildings. Although mold growth is
natural outside, it has no place indoors. The culprit for these hidden mold

nose. Large mold colonies hidden in walls or under carpets and creating rot often
have a musty smell. Further investigation involves pulling up rugs and probing
walls with screwdrivers. Again, be sure to take proper precautions. Inhaling a
lungful of spores can be dangerous.
