Mold is the common word for a living organism that often grows indoors and can have significant negative effects on your health. Mold can be black, white or almost any colour. It often looks like a stain or smudge and it can often smell musty. Mold can aggressively spread throughout a house or office through direct contact or via airborne “mold spores”. The longer you wait to test for Mold, the greater the chance it has spread throughout your property.
Upon initial growth, Mold patches release hazardous “spores” into the air, which are small enough to be inhaled, and infiltrate the body. It is by inhalation that Mold can significantly impact your health.
Anyone who notices visible Mold growth is advised to get a Mold assessment ASAP.
Mold grows as a result of stagnant moisture or humidity. Its growth can be expedited by extreme temperatures. Mold can grow on any organic surface. Mold is most prevalent when relative humidity exceeds 60%.
We have a standard “Mold Assessment” procedure, however every situation is unique. Therefore, we custom tailor every inspection to suit your needs. We will consult with you to determine the specifics of your situation.
Typically, restoration companies offer “free inspections”. This is simply an another way of saying “free estimate” and offers no detailed information. A free Mold inspection does NOT offer any diagnostics or analytical reporting. There are significant differences between Mold inspections and Mold assessments.
Mold is very dangerous and can be extremely harmful to your health.
If you suspect that you or your family’s health is being affected by Mold, talk to your health care provider as soon as possible.
People respond to Mold in different ways, depending upon the amount of exposure and the person’s overall health. Some people are more vulnerable to the effects of Mold than others. This includes children, the elderly and those with a weakened immune system or other medical condition(s), such as asthma, severe allergies or other respiratory conditions.
We do not. In order to offer an ethical service our clients can trust, we work with a third-party, local A2LA accredited Laboratory. This allows the results to be defensible in court. It is strongly suggested that you work with a environmental consulting company who does not perform in- house lab work.
