Mold Testing – Keep Your Home and Business Healthy

A common misconception is that only dirty houses or buildings get mold; clean and tidy homes and businesses are spared. The truth is that mold can be present anywhere, in any type of home, office, or building. Often the occupants don’t know they have a mold problem, and are suffering serious health consequences. That’s why mold testing is so important. Air Environmental is a top-rated mold testing company that services the tri-state area. We provide mold testing for homes and businesses.

When Should You Test for Mold?

  • If you smell a musty odor or see mold

  • After a flood, leak, or sewage back-up

  • If people or pets are experiencing allergy-like symptoms

  • Before you perform mold remediation

  • If a basement, attic, or other area is damp

  • Before purchasing or selling any home or property, especially if suspect mold was found during a home inspection

  • If an ice dam has formed on your roof and leaked into your home or workplace

Mold Can Cause Illness

Mold spreads spores that can make you sick, including triggering asthma attacks and other respiratory issues. Black mold can be extremely toxic. A spot of mold the size of a dime contains approximately 500,000 spores. A mold issue in one room can lead to a whole building problem, as spores can easily travel through general air currents and HVAC systems and cross-contaminate the premises quickly. Through expert mold testing, our certified mold inspectors can help you discover what’s causing mold growth in your home or business.

Mold sickness can cause sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy or watery eyes, nose and throat, cough and postnasal drip, wheezing, rashes, and more. If you think you’ve been exposed to mold in your home or workplace, call us to schedule a consultation today.

Test for Mold Before You Remediate

 

If you suspect you have mold, the first thing you should do is call an independent mold testing company – one that does not conduct mold removal or mold remediation. Why is this important? Because you want an honest answer. Once Air Environmental performs unbiased testing, we will provide you with an outline for mold removal, so you can choose a reputable remediation company to implement the plan. Ask about their certifications, insurance and licensing, as well as how long they’ve been in business. You may even want to ask for references from the mold remediation company.

Clear Mold Reporting and Answers

In addition to finding the mold, the experts at Air Environmental are able to analyze it and determine what type of mold it is and how much of a potential health hazard it is to you and your family. Since we provide you with a blueprint for remediation, you can then make a more informed decision regarding mold remediation and what to do about your mold problem. Once the remediation is complete, Air Environmental will come back to conduct clearance testing to ensure the mold was removed properly.
