Living in Florida we have 2 distinct seasons, hot and wet. Both of those increase the likelihood of mold growth regardless of whether it is a new home or older home. The problem is that unless you get the mold tested by a lab like Inspector Lab, you won't know whether it is something that can be cleaned with bleach and water or needs to be remediated. At Inspectagator, we can go in and test that mold through air quality samples as well as swabs and provide results in 24-48 hours. It is always safer to have it tested by a lab.
