If you are buying or selling a home, or business location in Palmetto, you will want to consider mold levels in that home. You may not realize that mold is there, but all Indoor (and outdoor) spaces contain a certain amount of it. Usually, strong ventilation and moisture protection can prevent any negative effects. However, when abnormal growth of mold occurs and reaches a problematic stage, it is important to contact a Mold Expert and get Palmetto mold testing.
How Mold Affects Your Health
Mold problems can cause health concerns, such as rashes, respiratory issues and headaches. Look for these possible signs:
- If you suffer from allergies, you may experience an increase in symptoms. If you do not have allergies, you still might experience a rash, sneezing, or a runny nose.
- You may see cracked or stained drywall or warped flooring.
- You may smell foul odors not coming from any other source.
- You may see a black, green or yellowish substance on clothes, walls, ceilings or air supply vents
Mold is good at hiding, so It is also possible that you may not detect signs or symptoms of mold at all. Untreated, mold can continue to negatively impact both your indoor environment and your health. A mold inspection and testing by a Certified Mold Assessor will provide the answers you need.
It is important to determine the type(s) of mold and the levels that you are breathing. Only the team of a Certified Mold Assessor and a Certified Laboratory can make this determination.
Mold Inspection & Testing Services
A Certified Mold Assessor will use several forms of evaluation to assess the cause and location of a mold problem. Expert Mold Test Assessors will examine your home or office thoroughly, looking for signs of mold, moisture or water damage. Only then will they begin to take samples.
- They can use an Infrared camera and/or moisture meter to locate the areas with increased moisture, and, therefore, the possible cause of mold growth.
- Mold experts sample inside air from at least two rooms and compare them to a sample of outdoor air (base control sample.)
- Further, where necessary, we can take lift or cavity air sample of the area suspected to have mold to determine the type of invasive mold.
Finally, the experts send the samples to a lab for analysis. With Expert Mold Test in Palmetto, you can obtain the results as quickly as the next Business day.
If remediation is required, we can point you in the right direction. After remediation, Expert Mold Test in Palmetto can take post-remediation air samples and compare the results to the original findings, and determine if the space is now within acceptable levels.
