Third Party Testing conducts Mold Inspections to determine whether or not a mold problem exists. If one exists, we then formulate hypothesis about the origin, identity, location, and extent of mold growth, and recommend the necessary corrections. Assessing the total concentration as well as the types of mold present in a building is very important and could mean the difference between life and death. Mold tests, or air samples, are helpful to determine if a mold problem in one part of a structure has affected the air quality in other areas of a structure.
A Mold Inspection report from Third Party Testing includes:
- The scope of work performed.
- Documentation of any suspected conditions.
- Lab analysis (test results)
- Source identification and recommendations for corrections.
- Photos documenting signs moisture intrusion or suspected mold.
QUICK FACTS ABOUT MOLD
- Molds belong to the kingdom of fungi. They use organic materials for food and produce tiny spores to reproduce.
- Mold can be found in both indoor and outdoor air, destroying anything it grows on.
- Mold needs food and water to survive and will grow in damp or wet areas indoors. Moisture control is the key to controlling mold growth.
- Mold is usually identified by an odor and a variety of health problems (headaches, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, allergic reactions and aggravated asthma symptoms).
- Molds cause health effects because they produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases toxins that may cause reactions in humans.
