When to perform a mold inspection

A big concern of any home or property owner is the presence of mold growth. Especially those who own older properties or have recently been the victim of water damage of any kind. Those who suspect of mold in any of their indoor spaces should immediately call professionals to perform inspections and confirm the presence of any fungal growth. Mold is known for developing quickly and being easy to spot once it becomes a problem. Under optimal conditions, certain types of mold are even known for releasing harmful chemicals that can attach to dust particles and remain long after the mold has been removed. Time is of the essence in inspection and removal, Here we can outline the process you can expect to go through if you decide to call professionals such as us to take charge in detection and removal of mold in your home or business.

The process

Since mold has a propensity for being difficult to spot, or grow in hard to reach spaces such as crawl spaces and within walls. The first step of the process should be to take an assessment of the air quality. Mold spores, which are microscopic seeds, tend to travel on indoor air currents as their method of spreading. This will require the sampling of the air in different areas to be able to gauge the level of contamination in, as well as the reach of the contamination. Testing the air quality is the most reliable way of detecting mold that may be growing in inaccessible areas that cannot be visually inspected. This assessment will be important to deciding the rest of the process of remediation and removal.

There are 2 important elements to any inspection.

- A detailed exterior inspection, allowing for the finding of any areas on the outside that may be allowing moisture or water to enter and leak into the property.

- A detailed interior inspection. Done by visually inspecting each room within the property. In addition to this, other methods of detection are performed, such as the air sampling mentioned earlier, and the inspecting of air temperature and relative humidity, both important factors in mold growth.

How the actual removal process goes will depend on the material that the mold is growing on. Certain surfaces allow for use of industrial strength chemicals that kill mold and stops it’s growth and spread. Otherwise other tools are available to scrub mold off surfaces. The mold and it’s spores are then dried and properly disposed of.
