Mold spores can be found everywhere in the air outside as well as inside—they can be carried in on our clothes, on our pets, or through open windows. However, mold needs specific conditions to grow. When you have the right environment, the spores will flourish and may eventually cause health concerns or damage to building materials.
If you believe that you may have mold in your home, it’s not always a necessity to know what type of spores may be present. Health concerns should be addressed by a medical professional and moisture/ventilation issues should be addressed to prevent further or repeated growth and possible damage to surfaces. If you are concerned about mold in your home, we recommend that you start with a full home mold inspection.
Some house sales or mortgage conditions may require air sampling as part of the terms, or you may possibly want sampling for peace of mind for yourself or for your tenants. Home SOULutions can help in these situations. We can take air samples from any rooms/areas of concern and then send them to the lab for analysis. We will also take a sample from outside for comparison. If there is a discrepancy in the type of molds or amounts found in the home compared to outside, Roy will provide his trained opinion on the cause and offer recommendations on repairs or upgrades that are needed.
Prices for sampling will depend on the number of cartridges run/rooms tested and the location of your home. Contact us today for more information.
