Are you concerned you may have mold and mildew in your Palatine IL home, office, or other area? If you are concerned about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a house inspector or other service provider has notified you about mold and mildew, you may want to arrange for an assessment with Healthy Home Mold Inspection Palatine IL. Below is a brief description of what we do during a regular evaluation:
The preliminary step in identifying a possible mold and mildew issue is the visual inspection. Throughout this phase, we be searching for 3 elements: proof of water leak or intrusion, visual indications of of mold and mildew development, in addition to areas with a capacity for mold development in the future. An assessment will include the interior living area, attic area, basement along with the crawl space or storage areas. The exterior of the dwelling will be examined for indications of water damage or or structural problems that could result in moisture seepage into the home.
Direct testing is performed to assess mold and mildew types on a surface area.
For this sampling approach a clear tape or swab sample will gather mold-like product. Product accumulated on the tape or swab will be examined with a fungi screen or culture by an independent laboratory.
Air sampling is one of the most efficient approaches for determining whether mold exists in a particular place. Our test utilizes an air sampling cassette. Air quality is examined using a vacuum machine that draws in air across a glass slide. This sample is then sent to a Palatine IL independent lab where the spores are organized by variety and counted. An outside control sample is taken to determine a normal mold count in your area 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 go over with you and provide you a copy. The information we give to you from the mold testing will include information like the type of mold, quantity of mold and mildew is present, description of the mold and mildew qualities and problems, comparison of mold and mildew quantities found compared to “routine” amounts of mold located in your area, etc. We do far more than notify you “you have mold and mildew.” We will include a guide determining the causes of the mold and ways to remove it through mold removal and mold removal strategies.
You will be the one to choose what to about the mold situation when we make you aware of the outcome of the mold testing. We will also provide you a written recommendation of steps you can take on your own to eliminate the mold, or suggest a mold removal protocol if you choose to work with a Palatine IL mold removal company. We can also carry out post mold removal testing to make certain your house has been appropriately cleaned by the mold remediation company.
