Mold Testing

Mold can come in various forms and some are worse than others. In residential areas, mold is common because there is both wet and dry air present. The most common type of mold that everyone knows best is black mold. Mold that smells musty or can be seen in plain daylight is never a good sign. If you unexpectedly experience the symptoms below, this means that there is a high possibility of mold existence in your home.

Health Conditions

The presence of mold can exacerbate existing health conditions like asthma and create sickness in otherwise healthy people. Some symptoms of mold sickness can include:

  • Headaches
  • Skin Irritation
  • Breathing Issues
  • Respiratory Infections
  • Coughing and Wheezing

The tools used to test for mold are quite advanced. They can help significantly to locate mold that is not in plain sight. Remember, mold that is not seen, is just as dangerous as mold that is obvious. Our trained professionals will collect samples of the mold and have it sent to a lab for testing. The equipment used will reveal the origin and type of mold. The analysis of mold is conducted via testing equipment and also microscopes. There are also tests that homeowners themselves can perform, prior to consulting a professional. The tools that are used can identify the amount of mold that is present, the type of mold and more. So often mold can be missed. But with a professional mold testing, every bit of mold will be found. One of the most concerning elements of mold are the spores.

 

Spores float around in the air and enter into the lungs. Indoor air quality tests are used in commercial mold testing. These tests are designed to easily identify mold spores in the air. Another type of test is used to sample the air coming from the HVAC unit. Appropriately identifying the air coming from the heating and cooling units are necessary to get a handle on the movement of the spores.
