Mold growth in a building is often hidden!

You may suspect hidden mold if the occupants are reporting health issues or there is a musty odor or history of water intrusion. Mold may be hidden in places such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, paneling, the top side of ceiling tiles or the underside of carpets and pads. Other areas can be behind walls or above ceiling tiles where moisture has occured. Even more areas for potential mold growth are around windows and inside duct work. There are many places for mold to hide and only a trained inspector with the proper equipment can find these hiding places.

The Mold Inspection

The mold inspection starts with a Visual Inspection. We look for potential sources of water intrusion that may be causing mold growth, signs of visible mold and even have the ability to look and test inside walls and other hard to reach places (ducts) with the use of infrared technology and state-of-the-art sampling equipment. Indoor Surface Samples are usually collected from visably moldy surfaces by means of sterile sampling equipment. This form of sampling and lab analysis is used to identify specific types of mold. Indoor Air Sampling may be necessary if the presence of mold is suspected, but cannot be identified by a visual inspection.
