Where can mold hide, I have a musty smell but I cannot find any mold?
Mold likes to grow in concealed damp places where air cannot circulate and dry the area. Some common places are behind wall paper, behind your kitchen and bathroom cabinets, behind the baseboard and other trim. Other areas are where furniture is placed too close to the wall and in closets where items are stack up and block air from reaching the walls.
