There are over 40,000 different types of mold in the world. Although some are relatively dangerous, others won’t do any harm to your health. However, if you find mold on your property, you probably want to know exactly what type it is. For this reason, it’s best to schedule a mold inspection before you do anything else.
The Mold Inspection
When one of our professionals comes to your home to perform a mold inspection, he or she will use a variety of different methods to determine what type of mold has started to grow on your property. For example, they may perform a visual inspection and take some surface and air samples.
In addition to testing the actual mold, they will also inspect your home to determine if any signs of water damage, pipe leaks, or water intrusion are present. They may also test your home’s humidity level and overall temperature. With all of this information, the inspector will be prepared to make an accurate determination regarding what type of mold is growing on your property.
What Happens Next?
If mold is found on your property during a mold inspection, the next step involves remediation. During this part of the process, the mold is removed from your property in a manner that is based off the information found during the inspection.
Remember, it is always best to leave the mold inspection and remediation process up to a professional. If you would like to schedule a mold inspection, give us a call at AdvantaClean of the Capital Region a call today.
