Professional mold inspections
Mold may present itself with obvious signs, or it may not. The only way to truly know whether or not there’s toxic mold around, is to get a mold inspection by a trained professional. You can trust the team at Mold Masters to discover, and eliminate, any harmful mold within your home.
You’ve found mold. How do you know whether it’s the bad stuff?
Even the tiniest speck of black mold is a cause for concern. But how do you know whether it’s black mold or mildew? Mildew is lighter colored, usually white or gray, and is easily scrubbed away with a household cleaner. It can usually be found in your shower, tub, or toilet. Black mold is much darker, and often carries an odor. Do not try to clean it yourself! A professional will be required to remediate it. Visible black mold is often the result of a much larger infestation within the walls, floors, and ceilings of your home. You’ll need to have a mold inspection as quickly as possible once you identify the mold.
Just because you can’t see mold, doesn’t mean it isn’t there
The tricky thing is, most of the time, black mold isn’t even visible. It’s often hiding out of sight. That’s why it’s important to look out for the signs of poor air quality in your home. Even if you can’t see mold, you may need a mold inspection if:
- There is a constant musty or smelly odor in your home
- You’ve recently had a plumbing issue, such as a leak
- You’ve had an onset of unexplainable health issues
If you think you might have a mold problem, there’s no time to wait
Black mold can cause serious health issues that won’t go away without eliminating the mold. Listen to your instincts; if they tell you something is off, there’s a good chance that’s true. It’s never a bad idea to be proactive, either. You can schedule a mold inspection even if you have no visual of mold or no underlying symptoms, just to get ahead of the curb and ensure none is growing in your home before it’s too late.
Picking the right mold inspector
This is perhaps the most important step of the mold inspection process. Different mold inspectors will use different methods and techniques, but one thing should be certain: they must be qualified, and trained to properly diagnose a mold issue. At Mold Masters, all of our technicians are highly trained and certified.
If you’ve previously hired a different mold inspector who didn’t show a proper level of concern about mold in your home, it’s a good idea to get a second opinion. The longer mold lingers, the more time it has to grow. At Mold Masters, we will thoroughly inspect your home, and get right to work if black mold is found. Don’t hesitate, call us today!
