Mold has been around forever but we have been hearing a lot more about it in recent years. Mold grows in warm, wet/damp environments. This growth can be hazardous to your health and can be destructive to your home. Mold is sometimes visible to the eye. We can identify and take samples to be tested in a laboratory when it is visible.
Poor Ventilation, Water Penetration & Damp Conditions
Mold growth can be prevented and stopped by eliminating moisture and warmth; but it will not kill the mold that is already there. Existing mold must be removed and conditions maintained.
We have found mold in attics with poor ventilation, in basements with water penetration and various other areas. During a home inspection we can identify visible mold, and environment that could cause the growth. Mold can be found in attics with poor ventilation, in basements with water penetration and in kitchens and bathrooms in need of repair/maintenance.
