A number of factors influence mold growth. The presence of mold spores in your home is virtually unavoidable. Spores play the role of seeds for fungi, and they’re invisible and nearly weightless. They blow into your home over the years and hide away in cracks and crevices, waiting for water. They can hibernate for years until a source of moisture pops up in your home, which could be anything from seepage or a leaky pipe to temporary sources like a bad storm or an overflown toilet. This water collects on the floor and trickles around, picking up and spreading mold spores as it goes. It flows until it finds an area where poor ventilation prevents it from drying up, such as inside a wall or even behind a couch. Once sheltered, it stands and stagnates, creating the dank, stuffy atmosphere fungi thrive in. If not properly treated, mold will eventually destroy it grows on, from wood to sheetrock. Our inspection, competitively priced at $349, will find and detail problem areas in your home related to spores, water and ventilation.

The inspection also includes laboratory analysis of samples collected from your home to identify the species present in your household and their concentrations. With over a hundred thousand known species of fungi, this is a valuable asset in finding and removing strange mold colonies from your home. The species also plays a key role in your health. Any species of fungi can cause an allergic reaction, but many also produce airborne poisons known as mycotoxins. These toxins, when inhaled over a long period of time- such as years spent living in an infested home- can cause a wide range of health problems, affecting everything from your heart and lungs to your eyes and brain. A few species are even carcinogenic.

The final part of our inspection, once the problem in your home has been fully assessed, is a free estimate for remediation and abatement services designed for your situation.
