Are you concerned you may have mold and mildew in your residence, office, or other location? If you are concerned about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a home inspector or other professional has informed you about mold and mildew, you may want to arrange for an inspection with Healthy Home Mold Inspectors. Below is a quick overview of what we do throughout a regular evaluation:
The preliminary step in figuring out a possible mold and mildew issue is the visual inspection. Throughout this phase, we will be looking for three elements: evidence of water leakage or invasion, visual indicators of of mold and mildew development, as well as areas with a potential for mold growth in the future. An assessment will include the interior area, attic area, basement as well as the crawl space or storage area. The exterior of the dwelling will also be examined for indications of water damage or or structural weaknesses that might lead to wetness seepage into the dwelling.
Direct mold testing is performed to assess mold and mildew types on an area.
For this sampling technique a clear tape or swab sample will gather mold-like material. Product accumulated on the tape or swab can then be assessed with a fungi screen or culture by an independent laboratory.
Air sampling is the most reliable techniques for establishing whether mold is present in a particular location. Our test uses an air sampling cassette. Air quality is analyzed by using an air flow machine that draws in air across a slide. The slide is then sent to an independent lab where the spores are organized by variety and counted. An outside comparison sample is taken to establish a typical mold count in your area on the day the mold tests are taken.
The independent lab will send us the results from your mold testing samples, which we will go over with you and provide you a copy. The details we provide to you from the mold testing will contain details like the type of mold, how much mold and mildew is present, description of the mold and mildew features and issues, contrast of mold and mildew amounts found compared with “regular” amounts of mold located in your location, and so on. We do much more than notify you “you have mold and mildew.” We will provide a guide identifying the causes of the mold and how to get rid of it through mold removal and mold removal approaches.
When we make you knowledgeable about the outcome of the mold tests, you will be the one to pick exactly what to about the mold problem. We will also give you a written suggestion of steps you can take on your own to get rid of the mold, or suggest a mold remediation protocol if you want to work with a mold removal business. We can likewise perform post mold removal testing to make certain your home has been appropriately cleaned by the mold removal company.
