Mold can cause serious health issues.
Mold is the result of water intrusions creating internal dampness (leaky pipes), external dampness (rainwater), humidity (poor air conditioning/circulation), and flooding. When an environment or objects in an environment are damp or wet for long periods of time, they become more prone to the spreading of bacteria and fungi, which produces mold.
Mold testing by a skilled investigator can provide valuable justification for the cost of remediation as well as documentation that diagnosis was done. While our laboratory tests can prove useful in detecting the existence of dangerous levels of mold, our company also routinely conducts visual inspections of the property or structure to identify potential sources. Any indoor mold growth is a problem.
The effects of exposure to even low levels of mold can manifest rapidly over the course of months and years. The quantity and type of mold along with the time of exposure can have various ramifications on individuals. Allergies are often aggravated by mold spores and can lead to sinus and respiratory infections including increased coughing, shortness of breath, and asthma flare-ups.
