Should I Have a Mold Inspection? Take the Following Mold Quiz
There are many areas in every home where mold growth can be hiding. A professional mold inspection can help you identify those areas where mold is actively growing in your home. The inspection will often reveal enough smaller areas of mold contamination that the cumulative effect is that of a large area. You will also be given advice on how to eliminate and control mold colonies. Because indoor mold is a direct cause of so many health problems, a mold inspection is a wise investment for everyone, not just those who are already suffering from symptoms.

Mold Quiz
These questions are designed to get you thinking like a mold inspector and may help you to find the cause of nagging health problems:

  • Do you feel like you never quite got over your last cold or flu?
  • Do you have allergies?
  • Do your allergic reactions go away after you leave a building or get worse when you return?
  • Do your allergic reactions lead to asthma-type symptoms such as difficulty breathing?
  • Do you often have flu-like symptoms such as headaches, etc.?
  • Do you sneeze when you enter your house or a certain room?
  • Do you frequently have a runny nose, itchy or red eyes?
  • Do you notice a musty smell when entering any room?
  • Have you noticed a blackish coating on any surface at home?
  • Have you had any water or moisture problems in your house or has your house ever been flooded?
  • Do you have rugs or carpets on concrete floors?
  • Are there any boxed or bagged belongings on the basement floor?
  • Are there stains on your ceilings?
  • Do you have any leaky faucets, drains or toilets?
  • Has your sewer ever backed up?

If you answered yes to several of these questions, you may have a mold problem in your home or office and you may be allergic to mold.

Water and palm treesDue to countless mold-related lawsuits, problems associated with mold have received extensive media exposure and have raised new concerns in health and real estate industries. Mold contamination can impact almost anyone and cause serious health problems and property damage.

In fact, a small area of mold contamination can emit tens of thousands of spores into your indoor air each day. Some mold types are infectious, some are extremely toxic and most indoor molds are considered allergenic.

In a lot of cases, there are no visible signs of mold. It could be growing behind the walls, above the ceiling or under the floor. There are many areas in a building where a water problem can exist and lead to a mold issue.

In new home construction, many may have a mold problem built into the home. The lumber used is left outdoors during construction and in all types of weather. The wet lumber is used to frame the home and then the sheathing and drywall are applied trapping the moisture and possible mold between the walls. This is the perfect breeding ground for continued mold growth. Mold poses health risks and it also does damage to property.
