COLUMBUS OHIO MOLD TESTING

Mold and airborne mold spores are a part of life and not an issue when their quantities are in a “normal” or insignificant amount.  Even outside in the fresh air, there are a certain number of mold spores that naturally occur.  The problem becomes when mold begins growing in a home causing damage to the structure and health ramifications associated with its tiny spores, which can easily become airborne and inhaled as mold grows.  Our mold testing procedures involve different ways to detect mold, identify the types, and whether or not they are in excessive quantities.  If the mold results come back with a problem, this is when you know more work needs to be done to uncover where the mold is growing and to stop the source that is allowing the mold to thrive.  Mold cannot live without proper moisture levels and that is why you find mold in homes that have leaks in various areas.  This could come from a roof leak, plumbing leak, window leak, siding on the home failing to keep moisture out, improper ventilation of bathrooms, and more. Many times mold is visible and can be cleaned up but in the cases where the mold is growing in the ceiling, walls, under carpeting or flooring, it is important to have the right kind of method to test if there is a hidden problem area.

MOLD TESTING PROCEDURE

All of our home inspections include a visual mold inspection, if there are any sign of potential for problems, we will notate that in the report.  If potentially found on site you can decide whether we conduct a swab test of each potential area of concern to confirm it is mold and what type.  We also conduct thorough mold assessments as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with a standard home inspection.  All of our testing is conducted by a mold certified lab that specializes in this type of interpretation.
