Testing for Mold
Is Testing for Mold needed?
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency
In most cases, if visible mold growth is present, sampling is unnecessary.
Since no EPA or other federal limits have been set for mold or mold spores, sampling cannot be used to check a building's compliance with federal mold standards.  Surface sampling may be useful to determine if an area has been adequately cleaned or remediated.

What to look for
Mold may be easily found or may be completely hidden. Mold can often be smelled even when not seen. The musty, smell associated with damp basements comes from mold growth. If you think you smell mold (mildew), you probably do.

The most dangerous and damaging mold infestations have been from growth inside walls.

Water trapped in walls during construction or seeped in after installation. The moisture could not escape and hidden mold developed. Children died in these homes. Families lost all their belongings. Furniture, clothes, books, photo albums and other valued possessions have become so toxic they had to be abandoned along with the home itself.

Mold grows in places you would normally find water penetration or damage. The first place to look is the grading around the foundation. If water drains toward the house, inspect inside and out where the water ponds near the foundation.

Look for water stains on the  walls and floors. This is usually from clogged or broken footer drains, bad grading and  gutters problems.

Inside the house, the basement is the most likely place for mold. If you smell the unpleasant odors associated with basements, it’s probably sewer gas or mold. Pour water in floor drains and run faucets to fill drain traps. If the odor remains it is probably mold.
If you found places where water drained toward the house or cascaded down the siding, look in this area in the basement. Water stains on walls, floor or around expansion joints at the outer edges of the floor merit closer examination. Sump pump areas and backed-up drains are also good potential spots for mold.

Humidifiers, furnace ducts are common places for mold growth

Examine all exposed plumbing for leaks. Any place that’s wet for more than 48 hours at a time probably has mold.

A Wet basement will develop many problems. When your basement leaks or floods, everything in your basement is exposed to damage, furnace, hot water tanks, drywall, paneling, carpets, cardboard boxes (with your treasures in them), furniture, clothing, washer /dryer, wooden floors even your sub flooring can start to rot. Mold starts to grow and releases spores into the air. Even dust mites like this damp environment. These mold spores, gases and smells may travel through the house rising in the air and from furnace duct work.

These signs are a red flag for home buyers -  sellers - and home owners alike.
