Home Mold Testing

Mold and airborne mold spores are a part of life and typically not an issue when their quantities are in a “normal” or insignificant range. Even outdoors in the fresh air, there are a certain number of mold spores that naturally occur. The issue begins when mold starts growing in a home causing damage to the structure as well as health ramifications associated with its tiny spores, which can easily become airborne and inhaled as mold grows. Our mold testing procedures involve different techniques to detect mold, identify the types of mold and whether or not they are in excessive quantities. If the mold results come back with a issue, this is when you know more work needs to be performed to uncover where the mold is growing and to stop the source that is allowing the mold to thrive. Mold cannot live without proper moisture levels which is why you typically find mold in homes that have leaks in various areas. This could come from a roof leak, plumbing leak, window leak, siding on the home failing to keep moisture out, improper ventilation of bathrooms and more. Many times mold is visible and can be cleaned up but in the cases where the mold is growing in the ceiling, walls, under carpeting or flooring, it is important to have the right kind of method to test if there is a hidden problematic area.

Knowing is half the battle
