Why Mold Testing & Inspection
The purpose of performing pre-remediation mold testing is to provide the property owner or decision maker with a clear picture of the severity of the issue at hand. Pre-remediation mold testing is important for many reasons including:
- To provide a baseline for post-remediation testing
- To reveal potential hidden issues within the property
- To date moisture intrusion which may reveal previously unknown water events
- To assist with defining the scope of work necessary for a successful remediation
Many of our customers ask us how to know if they have mold in the home. Any one of the following is an indication of mold:
You See It. You see mold. Visible mold spreads quickly and easily throughout your home or workplace.
You Smell It. You smell a musty odor, which could be a sign of hidden mold by an unknown moisture source.
You Feel It. Symptoms of mold related health problems can include sinus infections, sore throat, headache, coughing, rashes, and fatigue. Individuals with pre-existing health conditions, including allergies, immune disorders, or transplant patients, may be more severely affected by the presence of mold.
