Are you worried you may have mold and mildew in your home, workplace, or other structure? If you are concerned about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a home inspector or other professional has notified you about mold and mildew, you might wish to arrange for an inspection with Healthy Home Mold Inspection Rockford IL. Below is a quick description of what we do throughout a regular evaluation:
The preliminary step in determining a possible mold and mildew issue is the visual assessment. Throughout this phase, we be looking for three elements: evidence of water leakage or intrusion, visual indicators of of mold and mildew development, as well as locations with a capacity for mold growth in the future. An assessment will include the interior area, attic, basement in addition to the crawl space or storage area. The outside of the home will be inspected for signs of water damage or or structural problems that might lead to moisture seepage into the home.
Surface sampling is included to determine mold and mildew varieties on a surface area.
This tactic is useful in figuring out if you have mold and mildew in locations where there is staining or other signs of mold-like conditions. If you have mold and mildew in locations where there is discoloration or other signs of mold-like conditions, this method is helpful in figuring out if the substance is mold. For this sampling approach a clear tape or swab sample is used to gather mold-like product. Product accumulated on the tape or swab will be evaluated with a fungi screen or culture by an independent laboratory.
Air sampling is one of the most reliable strategies for finding out if mold is present in a particular area. Our procedure uses an air sampling cassette. Air quality is analyzed by using a machine that draws air across a glass slide. This sample is then sent to an independent lab where the spores are organized by variety and counted. An outside control sample is required to develop a normal mold count in your location on the day the mold tests are taken.
The independent lab will send us the report of your mold screening samples, which we will then go over with you and provide you a copy. The details we provide to you from the mold testing will include information like the type of mold, how much mold and mildew is present, description of the mold and mildew characteristics and issues, comparison of mold and mildew quantities discovered compared with “routine” quantities of mold found in your location, etc. We do much more than notify you “you have mold and mildew.” We also produce a guide determining the reasons for the mold and ways to get rid of it through mold removal and mold removal methods.
You will be the one to choose exactly what to about the mold issue when we make you aware of the outcome of the mold testing. We will give you a written outline of steps you can take on your own to remove the mold, or recommend a mold remediation protocol if you decide to employ a mold remediation service. We can also perform post mold remediation testing to make sure your house has been properly cleaned by the mold remediation service.
