If you detect any of these issues at your home or workplace, you may require a professional mold and moisture investigation, as well as mold testing.
1. You see mold developing within your home or structure.
Mold may be found everywhere in our surroundings, but it should not be growing within our homes. We can assist you in determining whether or not what you think is mold is indeed mold, what type it is, and how to remove it properly. Some molds are recognized as more dangerous to one’s health than others.
2. You are purchasing or relocating to a new home or building.
Purchasing a home is a significant investment, and you don’t want to discover that there is a mold and moisture problem after you have signed the escrow paperwork. If you are relocating to a rental home, you may be required to sign a lease. Before you commit to the property, Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Compliance Monitoring may assist you by doing a mold and moisture examination.
3. You notice a musty or moldy stench that becomes greater once the windows and doors are closed.
Mold odors are often detectable before growth is visible. The mold you see with your eyes is made up of thousands of mold spores that can only be seen under a microscope. It is critical to get a mold and moisture testing Omaha performed as soon as you notice the stench and not wait until you can see the mold. It might help avoid some damage to your building and save you a lot of money on repairs.
4. There has been a water leak in your unit or the unit next door.
Mold needs a source of water or moisture to develop. If you have had a water leak for a few days, that might be all it takes for mold to grow. It is critical to fix the water leak as soon as possible and dry out the building materials as quickly as feasible. Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Compliance Monitoring can assist you in determining the degree of the problem by using moisture mapping to locate damp spots and prescribe the appropriate drying treatment.
5. Your allergies or asthma are worse while you are indoors.
This might indicate the presence of allergies. Mold is a frequent allergy found indoors. Mold may be developing within your home that you cannot see or smell. You can test for dust mites, cat and dog dander, mouse, rat, and cockroach allergens in addition to mold.
Living in a mold-infested house poses serious health hazards. Some people are more vulnerable to health problems than others. Pregnant women and immunocompromised patients are included. The most prudent course of action is a mold check following water damage.
