Mold inspection 28b9_o

Mold inspection is extremely important because sometimes you cannot see mold. Even if you can smell it or see it, it is always beneficial to call an expert.

If you are like most homeowners, you are probably aware of the fact that cases of mold growth in the US have recently skyrocketed. Mold can be harmful to a person’s lungs, as well as aggravate conditions such as asthma and allergies. For this reason, if you believe this substance may be present in your home, you should schedule a mold inspection as soon as possible.

Mold Testing

A certified mold inspector is qualified to evaluate your home for the presence of this harmful substance through specific tests. The mold testing process is something that you should not attempt to tackle on your own, as you may overlook important signs that a problem is underway. Because all mold requires moisture to proliferate, the certified mold inspector will also evaluate humidity levels in your home and look for any areas of moisture concentration. Such moisture may be found in the air, or on the surfaces of various items in the home. Because mold thrives in wet, moist climates, the inspector may also recommend that you run a dehumidifier in your dwelling.

During the home inspection, mold may be discovered on walls, floors, or in areas where drywall or insulation have become moist. Mold in basement areas is also not uncommon. The inspection will include evaluating your home for insufficient ventilation, construction flaws and plumbing leaks, all of which may also contribute to mold in basement rooms.

Moisture Inspection

As previously mentioned, professionals will also conduct a moisture inspection to determine the cause of the problem. They may recommend that certain insulation or drywall be replaced with different materials that will discourage spore growth.

Certified Mold Remediation

The ability to assess such issues accurately depends on the biology of the different molds found in your home. The science behind the biology focuses on how spores reproduce, how they are introduced, and the manner in which they spread. Because such matters can become complex, professional mold inspection followed by certified mold remediation is your best course of action. If during a home inspection mold is discovered, an expert can make the appropriate recommendations. Therefore, you should contact a professional now and schedule a thorough inspection of your home if you suspect the presence of mold.
