Do I Need a Mold Inspection?
Mold is one of those sneaky perpetrators that are often very successful in going unnoticed. Although mold is everywhere, and many times it may be harmless, certain types of mold can be very harmful to your health, and it is important to know what signs you should look for throughout your home to ensure there is not a dangerous mold infestation. Here is a guide to know when you need to get a home or basement mold removal in Sterling, Northern IL & Eastern IA.
When should a mold inspection and mold testing be considered? ALLIN Home Inspection Explains.
Mold growth is a common problem. A leak or water intrusion can easily result in a mold issue. Mold can be the cause of numerous respiratory ailments, as well as cause extensive property damage. Some individuals may not even be aware of any water damage, but suspect mold growth due to the musty odor that mold gives off. If you have recently experienced any form of water damage or suspect mold, you need to have mold testing and a mold inspection completed by a professional from ALLIN Home Inspections, Inc., as a first step to determine if remediation and removal is necessary.
Mold contamination can cause health issues including respiratory problems, allergies, eye, nose and throat irritations. Indoor mold contamination in your home may be undetected until symptoms appear. ALLIN Home Inspections, Inc. residential mold testing services are a diagnostic assessment of indoor conditions related to mold. Surface samples are taken in areas where there are visible signs of a mold-like substance to determine if it is mold and if it is, if it is active or not.
Never ignore mold odors, even if you can’t see any mold. It is important to thoroughly inspect your home before any existing mold problems get worse. If your home has previously been affected by mold, it may be wise to verify that all sources of moisture have been successfully stopped and that no residual mold growth has been left after a known water and/or mold problem has been fixed.
If you are planning on purchasing a new home, it may be wise to get a mold test to determine if there is a mold problem.
