Mold Inspections

There could be a hidden health hazard lurking in your house or place of business. Many people wrongfully assume that they can only have an infestation of mold if they have recently suffered from water damage and the water removal and cleaning had been incomplete.

The Truth About Mold

The truth is that as something that grows naturally, mold spores are in the air constantly. Fortunately, it rarely presents health concerns until they land in a wet or damp spot and start growing. Unfortunately, these spots may be caused by a slow leaking pipe or a small crack in the foundation, allowing water to pool without you being aware of it.

The first indication people have that there might be a mold infestation is when they begin to experience inexplicable medical conditions.

 

    Some of the symptoms to look out for include:
  • Nausea
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Restlessness and fatigue
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Skin rashes
  • Sneezing, itchy eyes, coughing and other allergy-like reactions

If you or anyone in your family or place of business begins to exhibit these symptoms, have them visit a doctor immediately. They will be able to determine if the culprit is mold. If that happens to be the case, the next step is identifying how mold might be the issue.

 

    There are several questions to answer:
  • Has the building had a history of basement or roof leaks?
  • Has the water bill noticeably increased while known usage has remained the same? This could be indicative of a leak.
  • Is there a musty smell in the building that has not been noticed before?

Answering yes to anyone of these questions means that mold might be present in your house or building. Now is the time to call in the professionals.
