Professional Mold and Air Quality Inspecting Services
Are you buying a home and worried about the presence of mold in the house? There are a few important things to know about mold inspection. First of all, if there are visible signs of mold anywhere in a home, mold remediation services instead of testing is required. However, if there are no visible signs of mold, but there are other telling clues, a professional assessment for presence of mold can help you avoid health and safety issues in your future home.
Signs You Need Mold Testing:
- When the mold is not visible, but the odor of mold is present
- There have been plumbing or water-related issues that may have resulted in elevated mold concentration
- Health concerns: if you have mold-related symptoms, like coughing and sneezing, but can’t pinpoint the cause
- To get a general indoor Air Quality assessment to be informed about the home environment
- For real estate transactions
Why Choose Professional Services over Home
While it may be tempting to get an over-the-counter home mold testing kit, they are oftentimes misleading, unreliable, and simply wrong. Mold is present in many home environments since it’s a natural biological process. While home testing kits may detect the presence of mold, they fail to accurately calculate its concentration and pinpoint the exact mold source. Professional mold sampling will help you deal with a mold issue effectively and decisively.
