Frequently Asked Questions
Q What do you test for in an Air Quality/Mold inspection?
We are looking for 11 different Fungal Types. We will be testing outside as well to get a comparative/control for the inside samples. Our report will tell how each fungal type affects your health, and other details about them. It will give you a reading for all of the 11 fungal types, and if they are above harmful conditions.
Q Can an air quality test detect mold?
Air sampling tests the concentration of mold spores in your home's air. Samples are taken from the air and are later examined under a microscope. Air tests can tell you if you have a mold problem even if you cannot find the mold growth.
Q What is the main cause of mold?
Mold and mildew need only a damp, moist environment and organic material to establish themselves and thrive. Roof and foundation leaks, high interior humidity, overflowing washing machines and more severe forms of flooding are common sources of moisture and are what causes mold in a house.
Q How does mold affect air quality?
It often leads to poor indoor air quality, airborne contamination, and allergens affecting the health of everyone in the building. It won't be long before your mold problem spreads into the air ducts and quickly worsens.
Q Does every house have mold in the air?
"Every house, every environment has mold spores." It becomes an issue when the concentration of mold spores in a home is greater than what is found outside. Mold needs three conditions to thrive: an ideal temperature, a source of food and moisture. Around 70% of homes currently have mold. Mold is one of the biggest nightmares for homeowners.
Q Should I worry about mold in crawl space?
When mold takes over the crawl space, it releases toxic microscopic spores that can float into the living space. When you or your loved ones inhale them, it will trigger many problems including itchy eyes, asthma, bronchitis, and even migraines. Mold can also make breathing a problem for your loved ones.
Q How do you improve the air quality of mold?
Replace or clean furnace and air filters when they are dirty. Check them regularly, at least every two months. Use a "high efficiency particulate filter" (HEPA). Use ventilating fans over the stove and in the bathroom and be sure they are vented to the outside of the house. Keep humidity levels in your home as low as you can—no higher than 50%-all day long. An air conditioner or dehumidifier will help you keep the level low. You can buy a meter to check your home's humidity at a home improvement store. Professional Remediation of the home and or crawlspace may be needed for extreme issues.
