However, while testing is the only definitive way to diagnose a mold problem, several common characteristics of mold are its textured and fuzzy appearance along with its variety of colors.

Controlled Removal

Mold cleanup is highly reliant on what is often deemed a controlled removal. Since infestations can be made of millions of tiny spores, it is essential to control airflow and movement in the space to be remediated. This means that areas are often taped off with plastic sheeting, including ductwork and windows. The idea is to limit spread as much as possible.
