Mold most commonly grows in bathrooms, basements, and anywhere else where there is dampness or water. Many types of mold we routinely encounter aren't hazardous to healthy individuals; however, too much exposure to mold may cause a worsening of such conditions as asthma, hay fever, or other allergies. Our mold inspection and testing services will alert you to possible mold problems in your current or potential house.
A thorough investigation of the premises may include the exterior and interior conditions. This may include water infiltration due to exterior surface penetrations, interior defects of the plumbing, heating or cooling systems. Test samples may be taken from suspect surfaces. Laboratory results of air samples may be required to identify the variety species and the magnitude of their presence inside the house.
Mold is usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Mold has the potential to cause health problems. Mold produces allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.
Allergic reactions to mold are common and include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Mold can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold.
