Pittsburgh Mold Inspection & Testing

As you already know a home is not just somewhere you live, it is also a large purchase; for most the largest one they will make in their life. Pittsburgh Testing may be advocated if our inspector notes conspicuous mold, excess moisture or water intrusion. If a property has heavy 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 experts in the field and equipped to complete sampling so you will not have to pay even more money for a additional inspector to come out and carry out a secondary inspection.

This service is especially suitable for those looking at foreclosures and homes that have been vacant for extended periods of time. While this service is usable to all clients, it is generally only recommended when a red flag is raised. A visual Pittsburgh 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 clients feel that paying a little extra price is well worth knowing they are not buying someone else’s headaches; even if the inspector does not see any visible problems.
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 quantity of nontoxic spores can cause problems for people’s health. Indoor growth can likewise create the existence of other toxic species of mold like Stachybotrys; which isn’t acceptable at any level inside a building.

Pittsburgh Mold Testing
Our Pittsburgh mold testing procedure is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a guideline for what is to be accepted 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 samples may be recommended to help confirm a source of a problem, or see if other areas of the home have been infected. Additional samples can be collected at $75 each. Every situation is different and there is really no way of know how many will be recommended but commonly it is 2-4 total.
After these mold tests are taken on site, they are sent to an recognized AIHA accredited laboratory for study. Here they will test not only what species of mold is present but also quantities of each. You will be sent a duplicate of the lab findings and explanation of results will be included in your home inspection report. Customers that do have elevated levels of mold will be provided a protocol for mold removal steps to be carried our by a professional mold remediation firm.
