If you notice any indicators you have a mold problem in your home, taking immediate action is important. Most of the time, a moisture control problem is what leads to mold growth in the first place, and from there mold will present itself in whatever areas are closest to the moisture-rich environment. Furthermore, mold spores spread quickly, and you may notice that they take over your property faster than you anticipated.
our next call is to the company that provides mold testing because you want to see what can be done. Wait. You don’t need mold testing. Why? You can already see the mold.
That’s right — the only reason you might want mold testing at your home is if you have an indoor air quality problem that isn’t immediately apparent. If you have visible mold in your home, there is no reason to have a company complete mold testing, but rather you will want to move to the next step with removal and remediation.
So, why wouldn’t you want mold testing if you can see the mold? Mold testing is designed to determine the presence of mold (yes or no), the severity, and the type. If you can see the mold affecting your home already, you know it is present and how severe the problem is. This eliminates the need for mold testing, and it will save you some money in the end!
