There are a variety of mold home inspection companies out there – anybody can learn a few “tricks of the trade” and set about performing this much-needed service. But the “trade” involves a lot more than a few “tricks,” which is why Eco Tech encourages homeowners to contract only with certified mold inspectors (CMI)
Certifications are available in both residential and commercial mold inspection as well as in mold remediation, or removal. Unfortunately, unlike in many other professional fields, there’s no single governing body that oversees mold home inspection services and enforces certification regulations.
Eco Tech has certified inspectors who have studied widely in order to earn this certification. When we go to your home to perform mold detection services, we bring a level of expertise many other mold companies can’t match.
Mold home inspection is the first step in determining four things:
Most homes have some mold in them, and very small amounts in contained areas usually don’t present a problem. You can buy mold killers in a grocery store or hardware store that will quickly get rid of a little mold on the ceiling above the shower or around a pipe beneath the sink.
Often, however, there’s a significant amount of mold growing in places within homes where the homeowners never think to look – or are unable to look. Certified mold inspectors use various tools and techniques to uncover mold wherever it is and can then remove it before there is any further risk to human health.
Through a professional laboratory, we’re able to determine the type of mold that’s growing in your home. This is important because not all mold is the same. Some molds have the ability to release mycotoxins, which are extremely dangerous to humans when they come in contact with them, inhale them or ingest them.
Mold home inspection truly is a science and should be performed only by certified technicians. These are the only individuals qualified to find mold wherever it’s growing, determine the total volume and target the species type.
Mold is known to cause a variety of health problems ranging from mild to deadly. If you suspect there is mold in your home, call Eco Tech today to arrange for a professional mold home inspection by a certified inspector. Call (610) 710-1414, or contact us through our website.
