Q & A
Q: How do I know if a dark spot in my kitchen, bathroom, etc. is mold?
A: Mold occurs when surfaces are regularly exposed to moisture. There’s actually a very easy way to check if something is mold, or just dirt. Dab the dark spot with some household bleach—if it lightens up in a couple of minutes, you have mold; if it stays dark, it’s just regular dirt.
If you do find you have mold, you’ll have to not only get rid of the mold itself, but also tackle the underlying issue that caused it in the first place. A non-emergency call to your building manager is probably a good idea.
