Mold growth inside a home is fostered by several factors. Spores blow in from outside over the years and hide away in cracks and crevices, waiting to be picked up by water. Unwanted moisture is a common problem in homes and can come from almost anywhere. Even a temporary problem like a bad storm or pile of wet laundry can kickstart fungal growth. Once inside, water collects and trickles around the floor, seeking areas of lower elevation. These often coincide with areas that have poor ventilation. Inadequate airflow prevents water from drying up, allowing it to stand and stagnate, spreading spores the whole while. The humidity level rises and suddenly there’s the perfect atmosphere inside your wall for mold growth. Once it starts, a colony can quickly cause thousand of dollars in property damage, devouring everything it grows on from wood to sheetrock. Our inspection, competitively priced at $349, will find and diagnose these problem areas for you.

The inspection also includes the collection of samples for lab testing. The tests will determine which species of fungi are present and their concentrations, which is not only important in actually finding the colonies but also in the risk posed to your health. Any species of fungi can cause an allergic reaction, but many also produce poisons known as mycotoxins. These toxins saturate the tissues and spores, and when inhaled over a long period of time- such as during years or months spent living in an infested home- can cause a wide range of health problems, potentially damaging your heart, lungs, eyes, and brain. Some species are even carcinogenic.
