How can someone be exposed to MOLD?
Mold Can Cause Health Problems
Mold has the potential to cause health problems and even make a home or business uninhabitable. However everyone is affected differently when in contact with mold.

Others at risk may include: infants, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and individuals with existing respiratory conditions or who are immune compromised.

Do you know if you have a MOLD problem in your home?
A MOLD inspection is your first line of defense! To find out if MOLD is a problem in your home,
you MUST have a mold inspection conducted by your inspector.
A visual inspection is the initial step in identifying possible contamination problems. It will identify any visible water leaks or moisture stains on ceiling, walls, and floors or under counters. The air conditioning and heating systems, the attic crawl space and basement will receive a visual inspection as well. The use of equipment, such as a boroscope, to view spaces in ductwork or behind walls, and moisture meters are use to help identify hidden sources of mold growth and the extent of the water damage.
Air Sampling is to determine the type and amount of airborne contamination in a building. Air sampling may be necessary if the presence of mold, allergies or toxins is suspected (e.g: musty odors, allergies) but cannot be identified by a visual inspection. Tape/Swab samples are usually collected from visible moldy surfaces by wiping the area with a sterile swab.
