If you have a severe mold outbreak on the bathroom ceiling over the shower, you don’t need a mold inspector to tell you there’s mold in the bathroom. But mold inspection in PA, when performed by certified technicians, is very important when it comes to finding mold in places you never think to look or can’t get to and when the mold is too sparse, at the moment, to be seen.
What is involved in mold inspection in Philadelphia? Several things. First, we want to find out where the mold is. This requires more than just going around and looking. Mold Removal Philadelphia uses two primary tests: one to uncover the presence of mold on surfaces, the other to find it in the air.
You might wonder why we have to do tests for surface mold when, like our bathroom example above, it’s plain to see. Well, not all mold exists in large enough quantities to be seen. Individual mold spores are very tiny, and until a sufficient amount cluster together, the naked eye can’t see them.
This is definitely not an “out of sight, out of mind” situation, and that’s why mold inspection in PA is so important. We want to kill and remove the mold before you end up with something like in the bathroom ceiling example.
We also test for airborne mold. The danger here is that it can spread to any area within your home or office, and if it manages to get to and land in an area that is damp and poorly ventilated, its fast growth is guaranteed.
Mold inspection in PA is the first step toward protecting the health of people who have been living and working around mold. Once we’ve identified where mold exists, we can set about removing it thoroughly and safely.
