A number of factors influence mold growth. The presence of spores in your home is virtually unavoidable, as the outside air is filled with them and they can remain aloft almost endlessly. Once in the calmer air inside your house, they settle to the floor and hide away in crevices, waiting for water to come through and pick them up. Unwanted water can enter your home in any number of ways, from leaks and seepage to storms or piles of wet laundry. This water collects and trickles around the floor, picking up dirt and mold spores as it travels. It spreads until it finds an area where poor ventilation prevents it from drying up, then stands and stagnates. Soon the humidity level rises and mold’s ideal atmosphere forms, with plenty of spores ready and waiting to take advantage of it. Once a colony starts, it only takes a few days for it to get out of control. If not properly treated, mold will eventually destroy everything it grows on, from wood to sheetrock. Our inspection will find areas in your home that foster mold growth and diagnose them for you.

The inspection, competitively priced at $349, also includes the collection of field samples for lab testing. The analysis will determine which species are present in your household and the concentrations of each, an important part of identification. The species present also pose different threats to your health. Any species can cause an allergic reaction, but many also produce poisonous mycotoxins. These toxins get inhaled via the spores and can cause all sorts of problems, from heart and lung diseases to eye and brain disorders. Some species are even carcinogenic.
