How Does Mold Enter a Property? 

If you’re like so many of our clients, you may be shocked that you have to deal with mold at all. You can take care of your home, you can clean often, you can do everything “right” – and yet, you can still have mold issues. 

The truth is that as airborne spores, mold infiltrates indoor spaces effortlessly, settling on surfaces and, ultimately, growing. All mold needs is for conditions to be just a bit favorable. The worst mold can grow in just a tiny bit of moisture. 

You may not be able to keep mold out 100% forever, but, with mold testing, you can know the truth and then, if necessary, you can act on it. 

Where Could Mold Be On My Property? 

You may walk through your home and think: “I don’t see mold, I don’t even see moisture – so where could it be?” All too often, it can be in those moisture-rich environments just outside of sight. 

Mold thrives with any amount of moisture, thus making areas prone to leaks or flooding prime breeding grounds. From damp basements to water-damaged surfaces, mold infiltrates various substrates, including wood, drywall, and fabric. If you have any of those, you could be at risk. 

Moreover, HVAC systems and plumbing fixtures provide conducive conditions for mold proliferation, necessitating comprehensive inspections to identify latent colonies.

When we test, we make sure to test all throughout your property. That way, if there’s any potentially dangerous mold anywhere, we can find it pronto. 

How Dangerous is Mold? 

In short, mold can be very dangerous. Indeed, any exposure to mold-infested environments poses health risks, particularly for individuals with sensitivities or respiratory ailments. 

Certain molds produce mycotoxins, triggering allergic reactions. Pervasive mold growth compromises indoor air quality, potentially exacerbating allergy symptoms and respiratory distress.

Many realize they need testing when they (or their family members/co-workers, etc.) get and/or feel sick often. Maybe you’re always coughing and unsure why. Those are just some of the ways the dangers of mold can manifest. 

Why Reach Out to the Pros for Mold Testing? 

So that you know the truth. We specialize in accurate mold assessment, drawing upon a combination of our professional expertise and specialized methodologies. 

Spore trapping and swab sampling techniques yield invaluable insights into mold presence, guiding subsequent remediation efforts. Home test kits offer a DIY alternative but lack the precision and reliability of laboratory analysis, necessitating caution in interpreting results.

With our mold testing, you can know the truth, one way or another. 

How Do I Know If I Have Mold or Mildew? 

Distinguishing between mold and mildew is pivotal in early detection. Both fungi share similar habitat requirements but exhibit distinct visual characteristics. Mold typically manifests with a textured appearance, ranging from fuzzy to slimy, and presents in darker hues, such as deep green or black. In contrast, mildew remains flat and tends toward lighter shades, progressing from white to brown or gray.

At the risk of understatement, neither is good. With our testing, we can walk you through what the next steps are.
