Performing a regular mold inspection in Hershey, PA is an excellent way to ensure your long-term health, as well as the health of your structure.
A mold inspection is an important part of your indoor air quality. In humid climates or in structures that have experienced water damage, it’s especially important to have a regular mold inspection performed. This is even more important if someone regularly in the home or business suffers from a mold-related allergy or from reduced lung capacity or a compromised immune system. While mold is naturally occurring and its spores are present in basically every climate on earth, performing a regular mold inspection is an excellent way to ensure your long-term health, as well as the health of your structure.
A mold inspection is usually a twofold process. First, a visual inspection is made of the entire structure from top to bottom. This visual inspection can identify small areas of mold growth, in addition to areas with excess moisture that could become ripe for mold colonization and growth. The second process of mold inspection is taking samples from the home or business and testing them for the presence and type of mold. Samples could be taken from any surface or object, and then provided a growth medium in a lab setting to verify what type of mold, if any, is growing in the structure. Once mold has been identified, the remediation plan can be tailored to the severity of the mold situation.
