When are mold inspection services necessary?
If you can see the signs of a mold or moisture problem, then save yourself some extra money and go straight to addressing it! Residential mold testing is not always necessary when you’re already aware of an issue. Remediate the mold that’s present, get rid of excess water – and prevent costs from escalating further.
But mold doesn’t always show obvious signs like discoloration of walls and musty odors. Especially if it’s tucked under your floorboards, or eating away at the insulation behind layers of drywall. When issues aren’t immediately obvious, mold testing services can help pinpoint the source of any potential mold growth and the scope of the issue. It also will identify what molds are present and if it’s impacting the air quality of other rooms.
Commercial Mold Testing Done Right
If you have a business or commercial property, mold growth isn’t just an inconvenience — it’s unacceptable. Fortunately, our commercial mold testing services will ensure that the issue is diagnosed and fixed as quickly as possible. Our mold testing specialists will go above and beyond to make sure that mold no longer gets in the way of your day-to-day business.
Potential health risks of mold
Typically, mold spores do not pose any threats when inhaled in small amounts. However, if you’re exposed to large amounts of mold spores, given long enough it can lead to mold-related allergies or illnesses. Even then only certain types of molds such as penicillium, aspergillus, cladosporium and alternaria can cause allergies (according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America), but symptoms vary from person to person. For instance, someone may experience symptoms year-round while others have flare-ups.
Mold is an irritant as well as an allergen. That means mold spores in the air can cause irritation or inflammation even if you aren’t allergic to them. This can occur in your eyes, nose, sinuses, and lungs. To help you manage your mold asthma and allergies, it is important to reduce your exposure to mold. That’s why it’s important to have residential mold testing services done when after a major water intrusion event, or in a case where you expect you’re experiencing mold-related issues.
