If you are worried about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a home inspector or other contractor has notified you about mold and mildew, you may wish to arrange for an evaluation with Healthy Home Mold Inspection Waukegan IL. Below is a short overview of what we do during a regular assessment:
The initial step in figuring out a possible mold and mildew problem is the visual evaluation. Throughout this phase, we be looking for three elements: evidence of water leakage or intrusion, visual signs of of mold and mildew development, along with areas with a potential for mold growth in the future. An evaluation will encompass the interior living space, attic, basement in addition to the crawl space or storage areas. The exterior of the dwelling will also be checked out for indicators of water damage or or structural issues that might lead to wetness seepage into the dwelling.
Surface testing is performed to establish mold and mildew varieties on a surface area.
This tactic is useful in determining 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 areas where there is discoloration or other signs of mold-like conditions, this method is useful in figuring out if the substance is mold. For this sampling approach a clear tape or swab sample will gather mold-like product. 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 determining whether mold is present in a particular place. Our procedure utilizes an air sampling cassette. Air quality is analyzed using a machine that draws air across a microscope slide. This sample is then sent to an independent laboratory where the spores are grouped by variety and counted. An outside comparison sample is needed to develop a normal mold count in your area on the day the mold tests are taken.
The independent laboratory will send us the results from your mold screening samples, which we will talk about with you and supply you a copy. The details we provide to you from the mold testing will contain like the type of mold, quantity of mold and mildew is present, description of the mold and mildew features and problems, comparison of mold and mildew amounts discovered compared with “regular” amounts of mold found in your area, and so on. We do much more than inform you “you have mold and mildew.” We will include a report 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 exactly what to about the mold problem when we make you aware of the results of the mold testing. We will offer you a written recommendation of steps you can take yourself to remove the mold, or suggest a mold remediation protocol if you decide to hire a mold remediation business. We can also carry out post mold remediation screening to make sure your home has been correctly cleaned by the mold removal service.
