Testing for mold is an important step in keeping a home clean and safe, promoting good air quality, and preventing mold from destroying your domain. JLH Inspections can help you with a mold inspection and mold testing in order to keep your home free of mold problems.
Mold is a type of fungus that grows on organic material found both indoor and outdoor. Mold eats and destroys normal building materials used in
your home when they get wet.
Mold can grow and produce spores in as little as 24-48 hours. Most molds thrive in temperatures we feel comfortable in.
The presence of mold growth can impact your health, at home, the office or school. You can be exposed by inhaling airborne mold spores, having skin contact with moldy items, or by eating moldy materials.
Mold can cause many health concerns that include, but are not limited to, Allergic Reactions, Asthma, Hypersensitivity, and Infection. If you suspect direct contact with mold and are experiencing symptoms, you should contact your doctor immediately.
When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the best way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
Mold can grow anywhere that an excess of moisture is present. Mold eats and destroys normal building materials used in your home when they get wet. Areas mold can grow in a home include, but are not limited to, the Kitchen, Bathroom, Garage, Crawl Spaces, Laundry Room, Attic and Basement.
