I have several more pictures

There is a black substance coming out of the following areas:

Inside the dishwasher
from the outlet sockets
from the smoke detectors
out of havc vents

There is black substance that boarders all the 2 X 4 studs and nail heads
it also on the carpet in various areas

The HVAC filter turns black over a two week period.

Description:

Built in 2014, homeowners bought it in 2016 in the South Georgia area. It is in a residential neighborhood and is not close to any industry or dirt roads.
Homeowners say they haven't used the fireplace scene they moved in in 2016, they do not use candles. Mold Test and HVAC have been evaulated with no issues.

Things to consider:

Spray Foam Insulation in Attic
