Are you concerned you may have mold and mildew in your home, office, or other structure? If you are worried about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a home inspector or other contractor has informed you about mold and mildew, you may want to arrange for an assessment with Healthy Home Mold Inspection Mchenry. Below is a brief introduction of what we do throughout a regular evaluation:
The initial step in figuring out a possible mold and mildew issue is the visual examination. Throughout this phase, we will be searching for 3 factors: proof of water leakage or invasion, visual indications of of mold and mildew development, along with locations with a potential for mold development in the future. An evaluation will encompass the interior living area, attic, basement as well as the crawl space or storage area. The outside of the home will also be inspected for indicators of water damage or or structural issues that could result in wetness seepage into the home.
Direct testing is used to determine mold and mildew varieties on a surface area.
For this sampling technique a clear tape or swab sample will gather mold-like material. Product accumulated on the tape or swab will be assessed with a fungi screen or culture by an independent lab.
Air sampling is the most reliable methods for finding out whether mold exists in a particular location. Our procedure uses an air sampling cassette. Air quality is analyzed by using a vacuum machine that draws in air across a microscope slide. The sample is then sent to an independent lab where the spores are classified by type and counted. An exterior control sample is needed to determine a typical mold count in your area on the day the mold tests are taken.
The independent lab will send us the report of your mold testing samples, which we will then go over with you and supply you a copy. The details we give to you from the mold test will consist of details like the type of mold, quantity of mold and mildew is present, description of the mold and mildew characteristics and issues, contrast of mold and mildew amounts discovered compared to “regular” amounts of mold found in your geographic area, and so on. We do a lot more than notify you “you have mold and mildew.” We will provide a written report identifying the reasons for the mold and the best ways to eliminate it through mold remediation and mold removal methods.
When we make you aware of the outcome of the mold testing, you will be the one to choose what to about the mold issues. We will also provide you a written outline of steps you can take yourself to remove the mold, or recommend a mold removal protocol if you decide to work with a mold remediation company.
