Where Does Mold Grow In A Home?
Mold grows on plants and organic materials like wood, paper, and leather. It can also grow on the walls, floors, and ceilings of homes and other buildings that have experienced water damage or are experiencing a moisture control problem. Our inspectors and assessors have the knowledge and experience to test for and identify the full spectrum of fungal contaminants.
Why Should You Test For Mold?
Safeguarding human health and preventing structural damage are two important reasons for having Benchmark Environmental test for the presence of mold in your home or business. A few health issues associated with living or working alongside this organism include a runny nose, itchy eyes, rash, fever, asthma attacks, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
In extreme cases, some fungal infections can affect the brain, kidneys, lungs, sinuses, and skin. Significant structural damage to buildings can also occur. Professional mold testing and inspection and the creation of a professional remediation plan can prevent damage to organic building materials or furnishings.
Protect Yourself From Toxic Black Mold
Black mold can be very toxic. We can perform water intrusion investigations with the use of infrared technology to identify the source of a moisture problem and contamination. We also take air and surface samples to determine which types of mold are present and at what levels.
An accredited third-party laboratory analyzes each of our samples.
Monitoring, Reporting & Re-Testing Services
Once we receive a positive mold infestation result, we will develop a report regarding the specific hazards that are present. This report also includes recommendations for a mold remediation contractor. Once the remediation process is complete, we will conduct final testing and issue a clearance certifying that the building is free of contamination.
