Is Mold Inspection Required Before Remediation?

Mold in your home is a very serious issue that you should take every precaution to prevent. Children, elderly people, and those with preexisting respiratory issues are especially at risk of mold exposure. Breathing in or touching mold can set off allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to it.

Mold is a very common problem that affects around 70% of households. Mold growth occurs when moisture is present; the water gives the mold the optimum conditions it needs for growth. Mold spores are already in the air around us and are literally just floating around. Problems happen when the spores land somewhere in your home where there is also water accumulation. This includes simple things like: dampness, humidity from heaters, leaks, or from poor ventilation. In this environment, the spores grow and thrive and accumulate. If they are not discovered or removed, they will spread, very quickly, throughout your whole home. Especially in damp places like the basement, drywall, kitchen, and plumbing areas. If you suspect that you have mold, or you have visible confirmation, you need to make the decision whether to call a mold specialist to carry out a mold inspection, or whether to call mold remediation services to come and perform mold removal. If the presence of mold is visible or you can smell it, then an inspector is not necessary to confirm its presence and you can call in mold remediation services.
