Health concerns when exposed to mold toxins are acute and long lasting. Our inspectors are Certified Mold Inspectors.

You've probably heard the saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." That saying is certainly true when dealing with mold treatment and remediation. Mold can be very difficult to eradicate once it has colonized materials and established itself inside a home.

An inspection for mold may uncover several different types of mold. Only lab analysis can determine the type of mold present. Each one needs to be removed in a specific way. The most common types of mold include:

  • Cladosporium
  • Aspergillus
  • Penicillium
  • Ulocladium
  • Acremonium
  • Stachybotrys
  • Alternaria

If mold is found a seprate cost of $50 per sample is charge. Air sampling reqiures two samples one inside and one outside for reference.

What are the underlying reasons for mold growth?
Moisture is the biggest reason for spore growth. Since the spores thrive in damp environments, it is important to fix the core problem. That might include:

  • Leaking pipes
  • Cracked foundations
  • Unsealed or non-waterproof basement
  • A leaking roof
  • Unsealed window wells
  • Moisture entering your home
  • Contaminated Heating and Air Conditioning systems contributing to airborne spores inside the property.

    In many cases, the costliest part of remediation is not removing the mold but repairing these underlying issues.
