Mold has the potential to cause health problems and even make a home uninhabitable. However, everyone is affected differently when in contact with mold. The mold that may not bother the seller may severely affect the buyer.
Some mold can produce allergens, irritants and, in some cases, potentially toxic chemical substances known as mycotoxins. People who are sensitive and exposed to mycotoxins can become ill. Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed.
People diagnosed with allergies and asthma may be very sensitive to mold. Mold can cause asthma attacks. Other at risk may include: infants, children, the elderly, immune compromised patients, pregnant women and individuals with existing respiratory conditions.
With exposure, even in small amounts, mold may cause:
Itching or irritation of the nose, eyes, throat or skin
Mysterious skin rashes
Sinus infections or congestion / sinusitis (runny nose)
Respiratory problems (sneezing and coughing)
Upper or lower respiratory infections
Trouble concentrating, memory lapses, confusion
Mood swings, anxiety, depression
Chronic aches and pains
A Mold inspection/screening is a non-invasive examination of the building to identify and report on conditions that have led to moisture intrusion, water damaged and conditions conducive to microbial growth (MOLD) or actual existence of microbial growth. If such conditions are present, sampling is recommended. Sampling may also be recommended in the absence of visible conducive conditions as a precautionary measure; such as a carpet sample, as such conditions may be concealed. A mold inspection is valid only for the date of such inspection and cannot predict future microbial growth. A mold inspection is a picture in time. The data results of the organic microbial (Mold) testing should be used to aid the course of action for remediation. Mold Assessments.
Mold Screening: This level of inspection utilizes a visual assessment of the entire building, identifies "red flags" for mold. High power level flashlight, Moisture detector (HYDRO-PROBE) and moisture meters (TRAMEX) will be used to aid the inspector.
Sampling: The purpose of a mold sampling is to determine the presence of mold spores in an indoor environment. Our mold test will determine what kind of mold genus is present, the (raw count) amounts found in the air and if the amount of spores found are normal for that environment or elevated. This service will determine the type and concentration of mold spores in a defined area.
