Water Damage and Mold Inspection
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) advises that mold can arise if your home or business has suffered any water damage. Things like flooding, broken plumbing, leaky roofs, a damp basement or just high humidity can cause water damage that contributes to mold growth. According to FEMA, mildew and mold can develop in just one or two days after water damage has occured.
Therefore, it’s imperative to act quickly if you think you might have water damage or a mold problem.
Some of the steps that can be taken after water damage include:
- Turning off the main power if you find wet or moldy wiring.
- Opening windows and doors to get fresh air into the house (especially if there is less humidity outside than indoors)
- Using fans and dehumidifiers to further bring down the humidity
- Removing any and all wet items, including furniture and carpeting. Soaked carpeting needs to be completely discarded
- Throwing out any contaminated food products
- Getting rid of porous materials on ceilings and walls
- Throwing out wet insulation
Clearly, many of these steps are pretty major. Tearing out carpet or pieces of your wall are not small tasks to be undertaken lightly.
That’s why we recommend you work with our inspectors before taking any drastic steps. They can find mold that may have grown due to water damage and perform all the needed removal of materials.
Home Mold Inspection
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) caution that mold can make people and pets sick. People with weakened immune systems, such as those who have cancer, people who have had organ transplants and people with AIDS, are at especially high risk of getting sick from mold. The symptoms of mold exposure often appear like a normal cold and include:
- Red, itchy eyes
- Itchy nose
- Runny nose
- Respiratory irritation
- Coughing or sneezing
- General cold symptoms
It can be tricky, therefore, to determine that your symptoms are due to mold and not some other cause like allergies or a common cold.
A mold inspection by an experienced inspector is necessary in these circumstances to ensure you root out any and all sources of mold. Mold is sneaky and can hide in many places where you may not think to look. That includes:
- Under your sink
- Under the carpet
- In the nooks and crannies of the basement
- Inside the furnace
- Around window sills
- Even inside air ducts
Our mold inspectors have been scouring for mold for years, however, They know how to find even the sneakiest mold. When we do a mold remediation, we make sure the spores of the mold can’t travel throughout the home to take hold somewhere else, either. Our methods are thorough in finding and eliminating mold for good.
Sometimes mold isn’t even visible. We can find mold that is not obvious to the naked eye. Sometimes, mold causes a smell and that is the only sign that it is growing inside a building. Other times, you can notice signs like bubbling paint, discoloration or stains, constant condensation, bulging walls and peeling wallpaper. All of these can be signals of a major mold growth problem that can make you and your family sick.
