Looking for Signs of Mold
Are you wondering if you have a water or mold problem? Here are some quick tips for looking for signs and symptoms of potential issues within the home or building.
1. Check for active leaks around the home. If there are any, then depending on how long the leak has been going on, you could have a problem with mold and need an inspection to confirm it.
2. Take a look at the walls in the home: Are there any moist areas or parts that look to be discolored or bowing out? All of these are signs of a mold problem in progress.
3. If you see plaster or strips of paint peeling off of walls or ceilings, it may be due to moisture build up. Be sure to have a professional check it out.
Should you find any of these signs, we recommend you get an inspection done to test if there is a problem, as living in a home that does have mold can be detrimental to one’s health.
When one of our certified inspectors comes to your home, he will start with a visual inspection of the property. Noting down any possible problems that he sees, measuring moisture in each room, as well as looking for any problem areas.
The inspector will collect air and/or surface samples depending on what service you are looking for, those samples will be sent along with a full report to one of the third party labs that we work with.
Once those samples come back to us with the details of what was found, we will put together a comprehensive report for you, explaining in detail everything that was found and what our recommendations should there be an issue that was found.
