What Are Signs You Have Mold?
One sign you may have mold is discoloration around your HVAC vents. Often, there will be a yellowish or black discoloration that may be a sign of mold. This discoloration does not indicate you definitely have mold, however, it is indicative of many mold issues in both residential and commercial properties.
A musty smell can be attributed to possible mold issues. Often during initial mold inspections when mold is present, the mold inspector will note that there is a musty smell throughout the property or near the mold source.
Wet materials are also a sign of not only mold but factors that lead to mold. It is imperative that water damage is addressed immediately to prevent mold. However, long-term leaks—like sink leaks, plumbing leaks, and fridge leaks—all can lead to mold when they go undiscovered for an extended amount of time.
What Are Causes of Mold?
Some homeowners and business owners rely on their own feelings to determine if mold is an issue. Respiratory and nasal issues have been known to be associated with mold in properties.
We encourage homeowners and business owners to be vigilant. When mold is caught early on, it is a far less severe issue than when it goes undiscovered. Mold is alive and will continue to grow and spread until the cause is addressed. After the cause is discovered and rectified, then remediation can begin.
Causes of mold can include but are not limited to:
- Plumbing leaks
- Roofing leaks
- Elevated humidity (“humidity bloom”)
- Untreated water damage
The reason FP Property Restoration offers a free initial mold inspection is that we understand the dangers of mold. Mold will have an immediate negative effect on the health of your property, as well as on you and your family. We schedule mold inspections immediately. Your mold inspector is an IICRC-certified mold technician. Once on-site, if we see signs of what we believe to be mold, we will recommend that you hire a mold assessor. A mold assessment company in the state of Florida has to hold a state license to legally test for mold.
How mold testing works: methods and processes
- Air quality testing
- Tape testing
- Swab testing
The tests are sent to a third-party laboratory that will analyze the samples and issue what is referred to as a mold test report. This report will indicate not only if there is or is not mold, but it will also indicate the types of mold and the number of spores in the air. This mold report will be used to determine the mold remediation steps needed to be taken to successfully remove the mold in your home or business. At the end of the remediation, this mold assessor will return to perform a post-mold test to verify that the mold is removed.
If a mold remediation professional cannot provide all of these, then you are putting yourself at risk for the work that will be performed. FP Property Restoration can provide all of these items upon request to all customers.
We have performed thousands and thousands of mold remediation projects. These projects have been both residential and commercial, insurance-related and non-insurance related. We approach every mold remediation project the same way—with expert advice, precision service, and top-of-the-line communication and customer service.
How To Prevent Mold Growth with Proper Ventilation
One of the most effective ways to prevent mold growth in your home is to ensure proper ventilation. Mold thrives in damp and humid environments, so it's important to keep the air circulating and moisture levels in check. Here are some tips to improve ventilation and reduce the risk of mold:
- Use exhaust fans: Install exhaust fans in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms to remove excess moisture from the air.
- Open windows: Whenever weather permits, open windows to allow fresh air to flow through your home.
- Invest in a dehumidifier: If you live in a particularly humid area, consider using a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air.
- Keep air vents clean: Regularly clean and maintain your HVAC system's air vents to ensure proper airflow.
- Fix leaks promptly: Address any leaks or water damage in your home immediately to prevent the growth of mold.
By following these ventilation tips, you can create an environment that is less conducive to mold growth, helping to protect your home and the health of your family.

If you think you may have mold in your home or business and may require a mold test, FP Property Restoration will send out an IICRC-certified mold damage contractor to do an initial mold inspection using thermal cameras, moisture meters, and their years of mold experience.
From there, our mold inspection team will possibly recommend indoor air quality testing to be conducted by a separate licensed mold assessor. Those air quality tests are sent to a third-party laboratory that, in turn, will send back the results so that they can verify if mold does exist and, if so, what type of mold is present.
