As vital as mold is to the environment, it breaks down organic matter and is important to keep out of your home. American Home Inspection Services, LLC, strives to ensure clients keep mold outdoors where it belongs. When mold reproduces, it emits tiny spores invisible to the naked eye that float throughout the air, both indoors and out. When indoor spores land on wet surfaces and begin to grow, a mold colony can from in your home.

 

 

American Home Inspection Services can help you determine sources of moisture in your home that allow mold to grow by conducting a comprehensive inspection by a certified mold inspector. To further determine the presence of mold in your home, we can perform several different sampling tests that indicate what types of mold are present and if they fall within an acceptable range. We also offer an air sample test that forces a known amount of air through a spore trap-sampling device. A laboratory analyzes the mold spores left “trapped” inside the canister to determine the types and amount of spores captured. Typically, a control test is run outside in addition to the test in your home. A physical sample may be taken of the mold if it is visible and sent to a laboratory for further analysis to identify the type of mold. The most important part of a mold inspection is to determine the source of moisture causing mold to grow and then dry it out to remove the mold.

American Home Inspection Services, LLC, can identify moisture problems by sampling the air for elevated mold spore concentrations and sample visual mold by request. Protect your home. Schedule your mold inspection testing with us today!
