Mold Testing

Like all fungi, mold thrives in damp environments. Although finding small spots of mold in your bathroom likely isn’t a cause for concern, certain types can trigger asthma attacks, allergic reactions, and other respiratory problems if not treated. Therefore, you must contact mold testing experts if you suspect mold within your home.

Why Your Home May Need Mold Testing and Inspection

Mold spores are airborne particles that float indoors and outdoors until they find a damp surface. Only then do they become the fungi we sometimes smell or see that can cause issues. Testing potential areas of mold as soon as possible helps ensure you receive the right remediation services. Common reasons your home may require mold testing and inspection include:

  • Water problems: If your home recently endured flooding or a leak, it’s in your best interest to schedule an on-site consultation with an expert. Mold can settle onto any surface affected by water, such as wood, paper, carpet, and more.
  • Stale smell: You’ll likely smell the mold before seeing it, especially if it rests in lightly visited areas like your attic or basement. Professional mold inspection and testing will help identify its cause and ensure appropriate removal.
  • Mold strain concerns: Specific strains of mold can wreak havoc on family members with asthma, allergies, or other respiratory issues. Even if you only notice a small amount, don’t hesitate to schedule a test and inspection to prevent health issues.
  • The home buying process: A mold inspection provides new home buyers and sellers peace of mind. It demonstrates a safe, protected environment for all involved.

Mold Prevention

Once mold spreads, removal becomes increasingly more difficult. However, you can take specific actions to help prevent mold spores from settling onto surfaces in your home, such as:
  • Controlling humidity levels: Humid air contains large amounts of moisture, which attracts mold. Use a dehumidifier in your basement, run the air conditioning whenever possible, and install ventilation systems to lower humidity in your kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Repairing leaks quickly: Fix any leaks as soon as possible to block moisture from your roof, a cracked pipe, or other issues.
  • Promptly drying water-damaged areas: Drying surfaces such as carpet, wood, or walls following a flash flood or leak is vital. Try to ensure complete dryness within 24-48 hours of water damage.
