Are you concerned you may have mold and mildew in your house, office, or other location? If you are worried about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a house inspector or other contractor has informed you about mold and mildew, you might want to arrange an evaluation with Healthy Home Mold Inspection Lake Geneva. Below is a short overview of what we do throughout a typical assessment:
The initial step in determining a possible mold and mildew problem is the visual inspection. Throughout this stage, we be looking for three factors: proof of water leakage or invasion, visual indicators of of mold and mildew development, in addition to locations with a potential for mold growth in the future. An assessment will cover the interior area, attic area, basement in addition to the crawl space or storage areas. The outside of the dwelling will also be examined for signs of water damage or or structural weaknesses that could result in moisture seepage into the dwelling.
Surface sampling is performed to determine mold and mildew types on an area.
This practice works in determining if you have mold and mildew in areas where there is discoloration or other signs of mold-like conditions. If you have mold and mildew in locations where there is staining or other possible mold-like conditions, this technique is useful in determining if the substance is mold. For this sampling technique a clear tape or swab sample will gather mold-like material. Material accumulated on the tape or swab will be assessed with a fungi screen or culture by an independent laboratory.
Air sampling is the most efficient methods for establishing whether mold exists in a particular area. Our test uses an air sampling cassette. Air quality is analyzed using an air flow machine that draws air across a microscope slide. This sample is then sent to an independent lab where the spores are organized by type and counted. An exterior control sample is required to determine a common 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 then discuss with you and provide you a copy. The information we supply to you from the mold testing will consist of information like the kind of mold, quantity of mold and mildew is present, description of the mold and mildew features and issues, comparison of mold and mildew quantities found compared to “routine” amounts of mold located in your location, etc. We do much more than inform you “you have mold and mildew.” We also write a written report identifying the reasons for the mold and the best ways to eliminate it through mold removal and mold removal approaches.
When we make you familiar with the outcome of the mold tests, you will be the one to decide exactly what to about the mold problem. We will offer you a written recommendation of steps you can take on your own to get rid of the mold, or recommend a mold remediation protocol if you decide to employ a mold removal business. We can likewise perform post mold remediation testing to make sure your home has been properly cleaned by a Lake Geneva mold removal service.
