Basement Mold Inspection
Aside from when you first purchase your home, you should also have mold inspection done if your property has recently flooded, had a water leak, or you are planning to rent out or sell your home. Another time to schedule a basement mold inspection is when you notice health changes. If you or any of your family members are suffering from any of the following symptoms, call us right away to schedule a basement mold inspection:
- Sinus congestion
- Skin rashes
- Unexplained fatigue
- Eyes, nose, or throat irritation
The basement is a prime location for household mold to flourish because of the lack of sunlight. Basements that have groundwater leaking in are even more likely to have mold. It’s important to hire a seasoned professional to seek and find all areas of hidden mold, as well as any areas that could potentially be a mold breeding ground. Because mold can spread through your HVAC system, it’s important to schedule the inspection as soon as you begin to suspect mold. Dial our phone number today to schedule your inspection.
Detecting Basement Mold
It isn’t always as straightforward as spotting mold in your basement. There are plenty of dark hidden areas for mold to stake a claim. If you have noticed a musty smell in your basement, there’s a good chance mold is present. Contact our team of professional mold assessors to conduct a thorough inspection of your property. Even if you just suspect mold in the basement, we can conduct an evaluation of the entire property and provide you with a detailed written report of our findings.
We use a variety of methods for detecting basement mold including air samples, surface samples (lift tape and swab samples), and visual inspection. We also take an exterior sample to establish a baseline. The samples are sent to an independent laboratory for testing. With the results of the sample testing, we give you a detailed written report along with our recommendation for removal which you can give to a remediation company. If you have any questions about our methods or the inspection process, feel free to call.
