A mold inspection should be performed whenever you see signs of a mold infestation.  A mold infestation usually appears as furry growths or spots, usually in moist to wet areas.  The colors may range from black, Brown, orange, green, white and yellow.  A mold infestation may also be signaled by a damp smell of must and mildew. Finally, if you have observed an area that appears to have been flooded or show signs of water damage, then this area may also need to be tested.
