Save Your Home With A Mold Inspection

The Truth About Mold And How We Can Help

 

First of all…

Don’t Panic!

Every home has some mold. Because mold is prevalent outdoors, it will be present to some degree inside the home. And while beneficial to the environment, mold growing indoors can be harmful. Anywhere there is moisture and proper nutrients, mold will flourish. Basement, crawl spaces, attics, bathrooms, and kitchens are just a few of mold’s ideal growing locations. And just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Mold can thrive behind wallpaper, under carpeting and on ductwork or pipes.

 

What We Do.

A mold inspection is the only way to find out if mold is a problem in your home. Our inspectors will use their knowledge and expertise to educate you on the probability of mold in your home and offer suggestions for what to do if a problem arises. Moisture meters are used to help identify hidden sources of mold growth. Infrared services may also be ordered to determine sources of water intrusion. If necessary, swab, tape or air samples may also be taken. Samples are then sent to the lab for analysis. A detailed written report is available by email next day and includes digital pictures.

What You Can Do….

Mold levels can be controlled, and managing water and moisture indoors can prevent mold growth. If mold already exists, it can be removed, even in high levels. The following steps should be taken to control mold levels in your home:

  • Repair any water leaks

  • Provide good air circulation

  • Make sure all HVAC systems have a good electrostatic filter on the return

  • Use exhaust fans in kitchens, laundry rooms and bathrooms

  • Insulate and ventilate attic and crawl space areas

  • Clean, dry or remove items that are damaged by water

  • Use dehumidifiers in basements
