Is this mold? Is it a problem?
I pulled off a baseboard in my basement and saw some raised black spots, and a few of the nails were rusted. I'm wondering if the spots are mold? If they are, do I need to pull down all the drywall and look back there for more or is this not such a big deal since it's a small amount (from what I've seen).
Is there a way to test what it is?
What would you do?
Thanks so much for your help!
Sure looks like mold to me.
Why did you remove the baseboard without taking the base moulding off first?
If it's that bad on that side I sure would be interested enough to open up the wall and seeing what's going on behind it.
Thanks Joe! There wasn't any base molding. I think in the picture it looks like there is, but that is the baseboard just slanted outwards a little bit. There was no shoe or other molding.
Thanks for the advice!
Is that staining along the edge of the tiles? Looks like water stains.
Noticed and loose tiles along the outise edge?
