    Mold on ceiling and wall, or is it dirt?

    It`s not speckled like the typical mould I have seen, but how can a ceiling get dirty? how can I tell if it`s mold or not?

    Get a dry white cloth and wipe it. If contains green it is mold. If not, it is dirt.

    HK is a humid city, mold can thrive in this environment. Even in the most airiest location (My living room). Mold begins to develop behind a cabinet or under my sofa.

    Don't worry too much about it. It's when you start seeing mushrooms growing then you could begin to worry...

    Regards,

    the mold has been blooming over a month in my house. my hubby threw 2 belt away. We have been thinking whether to get the dehumidifier or not but got to store it in less than a month.
