Mold is a multi-cellular fungus that requires three things to grow:
1. Moisture/water (generally more than 55% indoor humidity levels)
2. Organic food source (paper, fabric, sheetrock, etc.)
3. Proper temperature (typically 40° to 99° Fahrenheit)
While it is impossible to “mold proof” your house, mold growth can be managed. Our New York State licensed mold assessor has been thoroughly trained to identify the presence of mold and estimate the severity. With those findings we prepare a Mold Remediation Plan that identifies the mold, serves as a guide for the clean-up project, and provides recommendations to manage future mold growth
Mold growth happens in homes more often than we want it to. Mold exposure can cause health issues that range from mild to severe. That’s why regularly testing your home for mold or when you suspect you have a mold problem is so important.
Central Real Estate Inspections has a professional team for mold testing, and we’ll send a New York State Licensed mold inspector to your home to assess the situation appropriately. Most people with mold find it in the basement, bathroom, or kitchen. It can thrive where there’s excessive moisture, and if you want to prevent mold, you’ll need to focus on these areas.
Our team will perform a professional mold inspection and then provide you with solutions that will improve the air quality in your home.
When our mold inspector arrives at your home, they’ll perform a professional mold inspection that follows our thorough and proven process. Our mold assessment process is straightforward and highly effective at eliminating your mold problem.
First, we’ll start with a visual inspection. A lot of the time, mold growth is easy to spot just by looking at high-risk areas for mold growth. We’ll be able to identify visible mold growth quickly, but that doesn’t mean we don’t conduct mold testing for mold that we can’t see.
One thing we incorporate with our mold testing is indoor air quality testing. A mold inspector will take air samples to test for mold spores, surface testing for visible mold growth, and bulk testing if necessary. Once we analyze the mold testing results, we’ll devise a mold removal plan and ways to help prevent mold growth.
Mold remediation is vital to the health and safety of everyone in your home. Depending on your mold problem, the severity of the health risks you’ll experience will be.
If you’re lucky, you won’t have any symptoms of mold exposure, but when the mold continues to grow, and you aren’t aware because you haven’t had mold testing done, it can get worse. Mild symptoms can feel more like allergy symptoms. You might experience a runny nose, sneezing, itchiness, and red eyes.
More severe cases of mold exposure can cause respiratory issues like coughing, breathing difficulty, wheezing, and more. It can lead to insomnia, trouble concentrating, and confusion when the mold is toxic.
Hiring a qualified mold inspector for your New York home can help avoid allergic reactions and more severe health problems.
