Testing For Mold In House
Mold testing is a useful tool in protecting the health of you and your family. The common signs that homeowners should be aware of are black mold in walls, ceilings, attics, bathrooms, or kitchen areas. While signs that may raise alarm bells are relatively easy to identify, accurately detecting the presence of mold is often difficult because it can be hard to identify.
Though testing for mold in the house is an excellent preventative measure, there are times when a mold inspection can’t be avoided. If you’ve been told by a medical professional that you are at risk for developing symptoms associated with asthma, sinusitis, and allergies because of mold, you’ll need to contact Excel Restoration for mold testing to see if it is the cause of the problem.
Is Mold Testing Required?
There are some situations where mold testing may be required, like if there is an impending inspection for any reason, and the inspector is determining if the home is in compliance with the Health Hazard Environmental Protection Act (or HEPA). If a third party is advising on renovations to the property, mold testing is usually not performed as part of the approval process. In fact, most HEPA regulations specify that mold testing and mold inspection are only required if the homeowner has requested it.
If you suspect that mold may be present or you are unsure about the type of mold growing in your home, we highly recommend testing and inspection. Call Excel Restoration at (224) 412-5222 to get a free estimate and learn more.
