If you tell a person who is not trained in detecting mold to go and inspect a home or an office, he or she will walk around and look for mold. This is a partially effective way to find mold, because often mold grows in places and in amounts that are easy to spot. But professionals who perform mold inspection in PA know that there are other ways to find mold.
Our field workers are experts at using a variety of methods to find where mold is growing and presenting a threat to the health of those who live or work around it. We’re able to find mold in places most people don’t realize that mold can exist such as in dirt, on furniture, in the air, in dust and numerous other places.
Mold inspection in PA followed up with lab analysis is able to identify specific types of mold and also how much mold exists in a given space. Live mold species that produce what are called “mycotoxins” are of particular concern, because these substances have been shown to be potentially dangerous to humans when they come into contact with them through touch, inhalation or ingestion.
Depending on your particular mold problem, our technicians will know the most appropriate testing procedures and will be able to recommend the best ways to perform mold removal wherever mold is found. There are three primary mold tests that we use.
One involves trapping airborne mold on a sticky disk; another employs a large swab to pick up mold spores from surfaces; the third involves removing from a space objects such as furnishings, wall board, damp paper products, etc., and having the mold content analyzed.
Mold can grow anywhere, and technicians trained to perform mold inspection in PA will tell you that you can prevent or greatly reduce its growth by not providing it with damp, poorly ventilated conditions, which create an ideal breeding ground.
If you’re interested in knowing if there is mold growing in your home or workplace, the only certain way is through professional mold testing. We can find mold wherever it’s growing and expertly and safely remove it. To schedule an appointment or if you have questions, call (610) 710-1414.
