mold inspections gainesville: MOLD or MILDEW? Purchasing a home…smell musty? - 04/02/22 01:41 PM
Mold and mildew both are fungi that develop as a result of excessive, unchecked moisture in confined spaces. They grow in a wide range of temperatures, with some strains especially thriving at higher temperatures. Both of these types of fungi can eventually damage the home or cause health concerns. Mildew is always flat. Mold can often look fuzzy or have an almost raised appearance, but mildew does not. Mildew may smell musty, but mold may be much more pungent. In its early stages, mildew appears almost white. It then often shifts to gray or brown. In its final stages, mildew can … (2 comments)

mold inspections gainesville: MOLD INSPECTIONS: CENTRAL & NORTH, FLORIDA - 04/26/20 08:23 AM
INDOOR MICROBIAL SPECIALIST offers post remediation verification (PRV) inspections and testing. Often referred to as “clearance testing”, this evaluation is performed by a mold or indoor air quality (IAQ) specialist to help determine if the remediation scope-of-work (remediation protocol) was followed and if the recently cleaned environment has returned to a healthy livable space. The IIRCR (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) defines this as Condition 1 status – a normal fungal ecology. The post-remediation verification should never be performed by the remediation contractor and is required to be a separate third-party company. However, many times this evaluation is scheduled … (2 comments)

Is there MOLD growing inside your Home Living space?? Need a Mold Inspection or a Mold Assessment? The Villages, Ocala or Gainesville.
With every breath, we inhale not only life sustaining oxygen but also dust, smoke, chemicals, microorganisms, and other particles and pollutants that float in air. The average individual inhales about 10 cubic meters of air each day, roughly the volume of the inside of an elevator. Because people typically spend so much time indoors, poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can greatly affect individuals and, more broadly, the public health and national productivity.
Fungi, especially filamentous fungi called mold, also lower air quality … (2 comments)

Ten Things You Should Know About Mold:
 1) Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory problems.

 4) To prevent mold growth any source of a water problem or leak must be repaired.

mold inspections gainesville: COMMERCIAL MOLD INSPECTIONS GAINESVILLE FL - 10/26/19 06:55 AM
Most lawsuits allege that mold problems could have been avoided, so commercial real estate owners need to show due diligence by investigating any suspected mold problem. We can document your due diligence in investigating mold issues and determine whether they exist at all. We also can provide expert witness testimony.
Toxic molds, commonly referred to as black mold, are more dangerous than ordinary molds because their spores contain poisonous mycotoxins. In concentrated amounts, mycotoxins can cause skin blistering, nosebleeds, asthma symptoms, or chest pains, among other things. In extreme situations, they can even cause shock and death.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for … (0 comments)

mold inspections gainesville: MOLD INSPECTIONS and MOLD INVESTIGATIONS FLORIDA - 10/18/19 09:35 AM
INDOOR MICROBIAL SPECIALIST uses Infrared thermography commonly called infrared imaging or thermal imaging.  Infrared thermography is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows an inspector to identify deficiencies in buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional visual inspection methods.
Thermographic cameras detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation. The amount of radiation emitted by an object, called “Emissivity”, increases with temperature; therefore, thermography allows for variations in temperature to be identified.
In conjunction with our thermal imager, we use a TRAMEX Encounter moisture meters, IR Thermometer and Moisture detector among other instruments to identified conditions that … (0 comments)

mold inspections gainesville: MOLD? GETTING SICK AT HOME? OFFICE? WORK? - 10/15/19 07:29 AM

You know the odor. It’s that musty, dank, damp, earthy, and altogether unpleasant smell that’s immediately recognizable. Call it mold or mildew, it’s not good news and it’s growing everywhere around us on the Island – in basements, crawl spaces, attics, on clothing, shoes, and furniture.
Our homes and cars are susceptible to mold growth for a variety of reasons, but no matter what the cause, mold can lead to both illness and compromised real estate values. Experts agree that mold’s needs are simple: food (such as sheetrock, wood, or fabric), a suitable place to grow, and moisture. Even dust that settles … (1 comments)

mold inspections gainesville: Attic Pull-Down Ladders (Home Inspections) - 06/26/18 05:42 AM
Attic Pull-Down Ladders (Home Inspections) Attic pull-down ladders, also called attic pull-down stairways, are collapsible ladders that are permanently attached to the attic floor. Occupants can use these ladders to access their attics without being required to carry a portable ladder. Common Defects Homeowners, not professional carpenters, usually install attic pull-down ladders. Evidence of this distinction can be observed in consistently shoddy and dangerous work that rarely meets safety standards. Some of the more common defective conditions observed by inspectors include:
cut bottom cord of structural truss. Often, homeowners will cut through a structural member in the field while installing a pull-down ladder, unknowingly weakening … (2 comments)
