Mold Inspections

“Musty smell? Not feeling
well? It could be mold.”

When should you test for mold?

Mold is not always obvious in a home. Is there a musty or "funny" smell? Is there water damage visible or reports of past water leaks or water intrusion? Water intrusion or bursting/leaking pipes can cause hidden water damage, including potentially mold! Is there a damp or wet basement or crawlspace? Can you visually see what looks like mold or mildew? Do you or any of your family members have health issues that make you sensitive to mold?

 

If you say "yes" to any of these questions it is best to test for mold.

If it looks like mold it should probably be treated as mold. I personally have never experienced something that looks like mold being tested and not being found to be mold. Therefore, I focus on air quality as the basis of my mold testing. This is a much more expansive way to test for potential, growing mold, especially hidden mold. The test I use tests the air quality in the home. It not only tests for the VOCs put off by living, growing mold but also common VOCs that could also cause health issues. This is my Level 1 testing.

I can also do a Level 2 mold testing with visual inspection. This is not only testing the air quality for mold VOCs in the home (Level 1) but is also inspecting the entire home looking for visible signs and symptoms of mold as well looking for issues with the home that could lead to current or future mold. This is a much more thorough mold testing and inspection.

Be confident your home does not have a serious mold problem. Have it tested!
