While some DIY mold tests can effectively test for air contamination, the details are often incomplete. TCB EnviroCorp licensed environmental scientists will check the horizontal and vertical surfaces of your Florida home or business in order to locate the source of mold growth. Our search for mold in your structure will entail the following:
Visual examination of horizontal & vertical surfaces within the structure looking for mold and signs of water damage
Inspect drywall, trim, cabinets, and flooring for signs of delamination/damage
Inspect HVAC for signs of mold growth
Determine a sample strategy based on site conditions and client budget
We also have the tools to test for specific types of molds. Determining the exact species found in your residential or commercial property will help us find the best solution for mold cleanup.
When Do I Schedule an Air Quality Test for Mold?
Both residential and commercial areas need to be guarded from the dangers of mold. You want a healthy environment for yourself and your family. You also want employees to have safe air quality conditions inside your commercial property. Poor indoor air quality can cause serious health problems such as asthma, allergic reactions, breathing conditions, and even depression.
Understanding when to check for mold is a crucial first step in alleviating the situation. You may not see the fungus visibly, but there will be signs indicating that mold is spreading. Some examples include:
- Persistent health issues like skin and eye irritation, runny nose, and allergies
- Signs of water damage (stains, pooling water, leaks)
- An unusual, musty odor in any area of your home or business
If you notice any of these tell-tale signs, don’t hesitate to contact us for a mold inspection and indoor air quality testing. We’ll look for the presence of mold and recommend any needed mold remediation services.
