Swab Test

Mold may sometimes be mistaken for dirt, especially when it is small or largely hidden inside the wall. To quickly check if you’ve got mold or not, dip a cotton swab into a mixture of bleach and water (16:1), and dab it on the wall. If the spot you cleaned darkens again, you can safely assume that you’ve got a mold problem.

Mold Test Kit

You can also buy a mold test kit from your local store or get one online. Test kits come with instructions on how to use them. After you are done with the test, the samples should be sent to a mold testing laboratory. Wait for some days to receive the result.  

Check for Leaks

Looking for plumbing leaks is another way of checking your Texas home for mold. If you discover any leak, there’s certainly a mold growing somewhere near. Check areas around the leak for damp spots and mold growth. When you notice the presence of mold, call in a professional for removal.

Use a Screwdriver

A screwdriver might not be a mold test kit, but it can get you close to determining whether you have mold or not. If you suspect that a kitchen cabinet or wall is infested with mold, use a screwdriver to probe the area. If it gives in easily and crumbles, it’s safe to assume that you’ve got a mold problem on your hands.

Professional Mold Testing

Another way of checking your Texas home for mold is to use a professional mold testing laboratory. An expert will collect mold samples, test for mold, and determine the presence of mold and its species.
