DO YOU SUSPECT MOLD GROWTH IN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE?
What if the mold is not visible? Mold growth can be a huge concern for families and offices as it might lead to exorbitant repair and medical bills when it gets out of control. When you have a mold infestation, the people and/or pets in your household might start facing respiratory problems.
Before it gets to that stage, fret not! You can easily obtain a mold inspection to either allay your fears or confirm them and seek mold remediation.
DO I NEED A MOLD INSPECTION?
Molds can either be obvious or remain largely hidden to the naked eye. If you suspect the existence of mold, notice the smell of mold, face the symptoms of mold-related illness, or simply want to make sure that your property is safe from mold, a mold inspection can be useful. The threat of health conditions far outweighs the mold inspection cost. In real estate transactions, a mold inspection can also save you precious time and energy, as well as provide you with peace of mind in the buying and selling process.
HOW IS A HOME MOLD INSPECTION CONDUCTED?
Our mold inspection services are conducted by trained & certified mold inspection science experts. They will inspect your property for moisture intrusion & mold growth, & conduct sample tests on air quality or surfaces to identify the type of mold & the severity of the situation. A surface sampling would reveal the type of mold present & the extent of contamination, whereas an air sampling would help to reveal hidden sources of mold & indicate the overall air quality in your property.
In most cases, a mixture of both types of sampling is conducted. Your mold inspector might also take pictures of certain areas to document areas with noticeable mold, water damage, or suspected areas where mold could lurk.
Before the mold inspection, it might be helpful for you to ensure that all areas of your home are accessible for inspection. Simply move any obstructions or storage boxes to make space for your mold inspector to observe the area.
To complement visual and surface testing, your mold inspector might also seek to find out more about the history of your property, the incidences of leaks or water damage, or if your property has been renovated in recent years. Through this inspection process, your mold inspector can find out whether your property has a mold problem and if so, outline a remediation plan on how to tackle it.
WHAT COMES AFTER MOLD INSPECTION AND TESTING?
After the samples are submitted to a certified laboratory, we provide you with the findings on mold levels and the source(s) of water intrusion. If the results of your mold inspection reveal the presence of mold, you need to follow up with mold remediation by finding the source of the mold problem and eradicating it. Our team of experts can also offer you recommendations for remediation procedures.
