Hartford Mold Inspection & Testing
As you already know a home is not just somewhere you live, it is also a large expenditure; for most the biggest one they will make in their lifetime. Hartford Testing may be suggested if our technician notes conspicuous mold, excess moisture or water intrusion. If a property has excess levels of mold that require professional remediation, that can most certainly change the value of the house. The good news is that each of our inspectors are gurus in the field and equipped to perform sampling so you will not have to pay even more money for a specialist to come out and carry out a secondary inspection.
Hartford Mold Inspection
This service is especially popular for those looking at foreclosures and homes that have been vacant for extended periods of time. While this service is available to each customer, it is generally only suggested when a red flag is raised. A visual Hartford mold inspection is included on every comprehensive home inspection. Without testing, these is no way to know the levels of mold at a property. Many people feel that paying a little extra money is well worth knowing they are not buying someone else’s headaches; even if the inspector does not see any visible mold.
Mold spores are all around us, we inhale these spores on a regular basis and generally it is nothing to worry about. Nevertheless, when a problem is present within a dwelling the amount of nontoxic spores can cause issues for people’s immune systems. Indoor growth can also create the presence of other toxic species of mold like Stachybotrys; which is not tolerable at any level inside a home.
Hartford Mold Testing
Our Hartford mold testing process is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a guideline for what is to be expected inside a home in the area. It’s then compared to the place of biggest concern or a general living area if there are not any visible problems found. Additional tests may be suggested to help confirm a source of a problem, or see if other areas of the home have been infected. Additional samples can be had at $75 each. Every situation is different and there is really no way of know how many will be suggested but ordinarily it is 2-4 total.
After these mold tests are collected on site, they are sent to an recognized AIHA accredited laboratory for investigation. Here they will find out not only what species of mold is present but also how much of each. You will be sent a duplicate of the lab results and explanation of findings will be part of your home inspection report. Customers that do have elevated levels of mold will be provided a procedure for mold removal steps to be carried our by a professional mold remediation firm.
