Mold Inspection and Testing
Mold is not always visible to the eye, which is why it’s important that if you have a hunch your home might have mold, you call us right away. A member of our team will test for mold spores in order to determine the level of mold damage you are dealing with, if any.
If we do find mold damage or you’re experiencing health problems that could be from mold, one of our certified mold inspectors will provide you with a mold inspection service to determine the type of mold you have, where it is coming from, and how to eliminate it. A member of our team will complete a thorough inspection, and you will be provided with a detailed plan of action as well as recommendations from the EPA. We will then provide you with a written price for the work.

The Dangers of Mold Damage
The dangers that mold can cause you and your family range from a runny nose, nasal congestion, irritation of the eyes and throat, coughing, wheezing, asthmatic attacks, and much more. When your home has indoor mold issues, this can constitute an important occupational health hazard that will need to be addressed by experts right away.
The Causes of Mold Damage
Mold exists in many environments both inside and outside the home. Mold typically develops quickly, within 24-48 hours after an area is exposed to moisture inside the home. If you see any mold spores developing in areas such as the basement or laundry room, let us know. We will arrive as soon as possible to assess the damage and find a solution.
Since mold is everywhere in our environment, it typically poses little risk to us until it is allowed to grow indoors. When it begins to grow in your home, it slowly destroys it while producing massive spores that are dangerous to your home’s structure and your family’s health. But when handled properly by the professionals at Mold Xperts, we can remediate moldy homes and bring them back to normal.
The Prevention of Mold Damage
When you vacuum and clean your home regularly, you are preventing mold from beginning to grow inside your home. It’s important to focus on areas with a lot of moisture, such as your bathroom or your basement. Make sure your bathroom does not have carpeting, as it gets moldy faster and is more challenging to clean.
Ensure that all spaces that have potential for mold can be easily ventilated. If you’ve just gotten out of the shower, make sure you run the bathroom fan before and after taking it, it will help absorb the moisture and decrease the likeliness of mold to grow. Leaving the bathroom door open for the space to air out is also helpful, as well as cleaning the throw rugs throughout your home because mold can grow under these and spread.
There is no way one can completely prevent mold in their home, but by taking the steps to prevent it, such as using ventilation, cleaning, and tending to moist areas, you can prevent further, more extensive damage down the road.
