Are you worried you may have mold and mildew in your Lake Forest IL home, workplace, or other area? If you are worried about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a home inspector or other service provider has notified you about mold and mildew, you might want to arrange for an evaluation with Healthy Home Mold Inspection Lake Forest. Below is a quick description of exactly what we do throughout a regular assessment:
The initial step in determining a possible mold and mildew problem is the visual assessment. Throughout this phase, we be searching for 3 elements: evidence of water leak or invasion, visual indicators of of mold and mildew development, along with areas with a potential for mold growth in the future. An assessment will cover the interior area, attic, basement in addition to the crawl space or storage area. The outside of the home will also be inspected for indicators of water damage or or structural weaknesses that might result in moisture seepage into the home.
Surface testing is utilized to assess mold and mildew types on an area.
This tactic is useful in identifying if you have mold and mildew in locations where there is discoloration or other signs of mold-like problems. If you have mold and mildew in locations where there is discoloration or other possible mold-like conditions, this technique is beneficial in determining if the substance is mold. For this sampling method a clear tape or swab sample is used to collect mold-like product. Product accumulated on the tape or swab will be examined with a fungi screen or culture by a Lake Forest IL independent laboratory.
Air sampling is one of the most reliable strategies for establishing whether mold exists in a particular place. Our procedure utilizes an air sampling cassette. Air quality is examined by using a vacuum machine that draws air across a microscope slide. This sample is then sent to an independent lab where the spores are grouped by type and counted. An outside control sample is taken to determine a normal mold count in your location on the day the mold tests are taken.
The independent laboratory will send us the report of your mold testing samples, which we will go over with you and supply you a copy. The information we provide to you from the mold testing will consist of details like the type of mold, quantity of mold and mildew exists, description of the mold and mildew characteristics and issues, contrast of mold and mildew quantities found compared with “regular” quantities of mold located in your location, and so on. We do much more than notify you “you have mold and mildew.” We also produce a guide identifying the causes of the mold and ways to eliminate it through mold remediation and mold removal techniques.
You will be the one to choose exactly what to about the mold problem when we make you aware of the results of the testing. We will also provide you a written suggestion of steps you can take yourself to eliminate the mold, or recommend a mold removal protocol if you want to hire a Lake Forest mold removal company. We can also carry out post mold remediation testing to make sure your house has been properly cleaned by the mold removal company.
