How to identify mould in your property
Black mould is rather easy to differentiate. When active the mould will have a black or green. slimy like appearance. If the black mould remains in an inactive state it will be grainy and dry. It is essential to keep in mind that in either of these states black mould can still be a problem.
There is also the problem that black area mould is not always visible from the start and can be out of plain sight. The mould issue can be in such areas as in the loft, under floorboards or behind the wallpaper.
