If you aren’t sure whether or not you have mold growth in your home or business, it’s time for a mold inspection followed by mold testing, if necessary. With decades of professional experience discovering and effectively treating mold invasion, Home Pro Environmental Services can help you figure out what degree of mold growth you have and the best way to treat and kill it depending on where and what kind it is (yes, there are many different kinds of mold species!).
For the initial part of the mold inspection we of course look for visible mold, but aside from mold that can be seen physically we also have special tools to help us determine any unseen indoor mold growth as well. Any kind of water damage or high amounts of moisture retention in the walls can quickly become a mold problem. These issues can be caught by doing mold testing which goes beyond just a visual mold inspection.
Mold testing may require the taking of samples to assess certain areas that may be likely to grow mold even though it cannot yet be seen as well as decide whether air quality is negatively affected by any indoor mold growth. Surface, air, and dust samples are specifically what you may expect to be taken and tested for mold whether or not mold can actually be seen anywhere. It is important to discover any hidden or unseen mold through testing to prevent future risk of damage.
