Ventura Mold Inspection

Ventura has a view of the sea that has to be seen to be believed. Citizens of Ventura have very little reason to feel sorry for themselves, but our city’s proximity to the ocean does come with a small price: moisture and mold.

The warm, humid air that rolls in off the ocean and over Ventura and Oxnard carries a ton of moisture. If your home or business hasn’t been sufficiently waterproofed and sealed, moisture can penetrate into the walls and ceilings. Given our warm weather, it’s obvious that this can quickly create the perfect paradise for mold growth, on top of water damage that can require serious demolition and reconstruction if not dealt with rapidly.

IR Environmental is Ventura’s leading source of mold inspection and remediation services. Give us a call, and we’ll be happy to walk you through how we can diagnose and deal with the issue. Our staff are all highly trained, and we utilize the assistance of some of the best third-party laboratories in the country in order to identify the exact nature of the mold, fungus, or dry rot affecting your home or business.

How can you tell if you have a mold problem?

Here are some of the easiest ways to tell if you might have a mold problem in your home or office:

1. If you notice warm, earthy smells, try running your heating or cooling system to dry out the air. If the smells don’t go away, then you may have a water leak or pocket of moisture in your home that is harboring a mold colony.

2. If you start suffering from uncharacteristic allergy symptoms, or you feel like you have a cold that drags on for months, but which diminishes when you leave for a while, then mold may be responsible. If this is the case, it’s important to contact a specialist immediately, as symptoms can become much worse if a toxic strain of mold is to blame.

3. If you often see condensation on the insides of windows throughout your home, this is a sign that the humidity in your home is very high. Consistently high humidity will inevitably spawn mold growth, potentially at multiple points throughout your home, necessitating expensive and time-consuming repairs.



When Kenny came out to our home, I was so worried about everything being covered in what I thought was mold. After Kenny walked through the home with me and I saw what the cause was for everything, I was shocked. Thankfully he was able to explain the best way to take care of everything in the end and now I don’t have to worry about my son getting sick anymore.

Ricardo was such a nice guy, thank you so much for everything! He was great to us, taking his time to explain what he was doing so that my worries were settled and it can all be handled. Thanks a ton Ricardo, you were so great to us, I had to at the least send you a nice note 🙂

Ventura Mold in the News


Fillmore Middle School plagued by mold, leaky roofs” – Ventura County Star, Feb. 18, 2013

A Ventura county middle school’s gymnasium and classrooms is suffering from black mold due to leaks and water damage that has gone untreated for years. Wet weather conditions have worsened the damage, and imminent warm weather threatens to encourage mold growth and for mold to become airborne. Parents are worried that the problem is not being addressed in a timely fashion.

St. John’s paid about $24 million to remove mold, official says” – Ventura County Star, August 22, 2007

St John’s, a hospital in Oxnard, temporarily has closed its facility to address its mold infestation, which is said to have been caused by moisture problems. The hospital has paid a New York company $24 million to remove the mold. Preliminary tests performed soon after have proved the fumigation to be successful.

Mold Declared Gone at Oxnard Hospital” – Ventura County Star, Sept. 29, 2007

St John’s Hospital in Oxnard has completed its mold treatment, and declared it a success. Test results have shown the bacterial spores were killed and that chlorine dioxide gas has penetrated to the source of the mold at the needed concentration levels. Hospital staff was glad to have treated it all at once with fumigation, rather than little by little over several years.
