Moisture and Mold problems can become your biggest threat to your health and home.
Moisture and Mold testing can be the first step in preventative care for your home and your family.
Molds produce allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins).
Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions including:
- asthma attacks
- irritation of the eyes, skin,nose,throat, and lungs
- haver-fever-type symptoms
- runny nose
- red eyes
- skin rash (dermatitis)
- and more
Most all homes have some moisture and mold problems. However, long-term exposure to excessive mold levels can be dangerous to your family and home. Mold testing is the first step to restoring your house to a mold free home. Guardian Inspections uses Infrared Thermal Imaging technology throughout the home to locate moisture and mold. We will take physical samples and have them tested at a mold specialty laboratory. Results are usually available in 72 hours. When combined with a In-door Air Quality test, not only can we determine the types of mold present, but also their individual levels. We can then see not only what the problem mild is but help locate its source for quicker remediation. Mold testing and In-door Air Quality testing costs vary widely depending on the size of property, extent of the mold inspection, number of mold samples, and other factors. Test early and often for best protection.
