Info About Mold

Present Everywhere

Mold exists in every environment, even the one you're reading this in right now. It can become a concern when certain types of mold reach elevated levels inside a space.

Toxic Mold

Mold itself is not toxic, but many types do produce mycotoxins. Stachybotrys Chartarum and Penecillium are two commons types of mold that produce mycotoxins.

Causes

Mold needs a food source, moisture, and proper temperature to grow and spread. Inside a home it is the result of excess water and the root cause needs to be addressed.

Health Effects

Symptoms depend on level and length of exposure and include: headaches, itching, rash, eye irritation, and potentially more serious health effects like kidney and liver disease.

How Do We Test For Mold?

Air Samples

We take multiple samples inside the home as well as a control sample outside. This allows the lab to determine if there are particulates inside the home that should not be there, and what levels they are present at.

Visible Growth Swabs

If there is any visible microbial like growth present in the home we will swab those areas. The swab samples allow the lab to determine what types of mold are present which helps determine the direction for remediation.

Expedited Shipping

All samples, indoor air quality and visible mold, are shipped via FedEx overnight to ProLab, an environmental testing laboratory based in Weston, Florida. ProLab is seen as a leader in the industry.

Detailed Report

ProLab produces a detailed report within 48 hours of receiving the samples. The report documents if there are particulates in the home at elevated levels and support staff is available for questions and guidance.

Supporting Our Heroes

Active duty and retired military, police, firefighter/EMT, nurses, and teachers receive a $50 discount to the home inspection.
