Possible mold in attic

Asked January 31, 2017, 12:02 PM EST

In our attic/crawl space there is one piece of roofing plywood with a black "stain". Is there an inspector available who could identify if it's mold and, if so, how to remove it? There is no moisture, so we're confused about what it may be.

I recommend contacting the Oregon Public Health Environmental Health department for recommendations. The toxicologists there will take calls (971-673-0977) and can provide excellent information about healthy homes and issues related to mold, etc. You can also go to their website directory and email one of the toxicologists directly: https://public.health.oregon.gov/PHD/Directory/Pages/program.aspx?pid=64

Thanks for contacting Ask an Expert.
