The extent of a mold problem is determined by the mold type (which indicates its toxicity), the airborne count level of both live and dead spores and the amount of cosmetic and hidden damages caused by the mold.

One of the biggest problems with many homeowners is the false sense of security they develop when they find a “minor” mold problem. Even small amounts of the mold can carry a high risk. However, this level of risk can only be determined with a proper mold inspection. Some studies have suggested that the visual appearance of mold on wall can mean that the back of the wall may be 75-100% covered by mold.
