Mold Inspection

Mold Risk Factors

Mold develops anywhere that moisture is not controlled within the home. Leaks, lack of ventilation, and improperly installed ductwork can all lead to moisture buildup inside of a home. The following areas are frequently affected by mold growth:

  • Attics
  • Crawl spaces
  • Wall interiors
  • Basements
  • Around chimneys
  • Furnaces
  • Ducts
  • Kitchens
  • Under sinks
  • Near foundation air vents
  • Beneath window unit air conditioners

Signs

Mold is not always easily detected. However, as previously mentioned, the presence of moisture almost always signifies a mold problem. Visible mold growth on walls, ceilings, etc. typically points to a hidden moisture problem. Unfortunately, many mold problems are not detected until homeowners experience physical symptoms, including cough, sneezing, irritated eyes, rash, headaches, and more.

Mold Inspection

If you suspect a mold problem in your home, there is only one way to know the extent of the problem: a mold inspection. At Americas Choice, we will examine your home for signs of moisture and mold growth, determine the cause of the problem, and inform you about the types and quantities of mold present in your home. If your home has a mold problem, we will help you find a trusted mold remediation company to eliminate this issue once and for all.

Mold Remediation

Aside from detection, one of the most important aspects of mold remediation is addressing the cause of the problem. For moldy areas smaller than 3-foot by 3-foot, homeowners can clean and contain the problem themselves. For more extensive mold problems, homeowners should hire a mold remediation company. These companies will contain the problem and use air filters to prevent spreading. Then they will clean and disinfect the area, address moisture or humidity concerns, and encapsulate any remaining mold.
