Home Mold Inspections & Testing Company
Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and under some circumstances, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. (EPA “Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home”).
Recent studies estimate that 50-65% of homes contain some type of mold problem, exposing an estimated 40 million Americans.
An InspectRite mold inspection will include an exhaustive examination of the property. With the latest in testing equipment, our MICRO certified inspector will sample the indoor air and take swab samples where necessary in accordance with accepted sampling procedures. If deemed necessary, air samples will be taken in wall cavities.
Based on the findings of an independent testing laboratory, InspectRite will prepare a detailed written report describing the inspection process, methods of sampling, relevant observations, analysis of lab results, interpretation of those results and recommendations for correcting the prevailing conditions.
We’re frequently asked why the homeowner cannot just purchase a test canister from the local lumberyard and do their own testing. The laboratory results that we receive or those forthcoming from the analysis of your test canister are by themselves meaningless and do not represent the condition of your home. Once our laboratory results are received, our mold expert interprets those results in conjunction with the history of the property, homeowner observations and complaints, complete visual inspection, weather conditions, the number of samples/location and other relevant factors. As a result, InspectRite submits a comprehensive report that is meaningful and a valuable tool to be used in remediation efforts to correct the mold problem in your home.
