We provide mold assessments and mold remediation services for residential properties.
VISUAL MOLD ASSESSMENT
Thermal Imaging cameras and moisture meters help our home inspectors detect moisture issues. Moisture issues can result from excessive irrigation, plumbing leaks, and roof leaks. Moisture problems have also come from ponds against the house, poorly installed showers, and lack of ventilation. Homeowners might have little control over the air and surfaces in their home, but they can control moisture.
WHEN SHOULD A MOLD TEST BE PERFORMED?
A mold test should be performed when you suspect and/or can actually see mold-like growth or staining.
When you smell mold or other odors that cannot be explained.
When there is moisture intrusion, water damage, or any leaks from plumbing or the exterior.
Always have a mold test performed if you are buying a new house.
If someone living in the house has allergies or other health problems.
If physical mold-like material is observable, surface or bulk testing is recommended to determine mold type.
Mold Effects on Health
Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. Also, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.
MOLD INSPECTION SERVICES
We offer two types of mold testing for our customers, complete and limited.
COMPLETE MOLD TESTING
An experienced professional will inspect the entire house and find any areas contributing to a potential mold issue. Our home inspectors are all certified to perform these inspections. The physical evaluation is a critical step in determining if a house has a mold problem. This service will provide you with peace of mind knowing what mold levels exist in your home.
LIMITED MOLD TESTING
A limited mold test includes inspecting only areas suspected of having potential mold growth. This service involves a specific area of concern. Perhaps you see evidence of mold growth or smell an odor in one part of the house. In this case, we can take a bulk sample (tape or swab) in that area. An air sample can be performed if you smell a musty odor without visible signs of mold.
