San Antonio Mold Inspection & Testing
As you already understand a home is not just somewhere you live, it is also a large investment; for most the biggest one they will make in their life. San Antonio Testing may be advocated if our inspector notes conspicuous mold, excess moisture or water intrusion. If a property has elevated levels of mold that require professional remediation, that can most certainly change the amount of the house. The good news is that each of our inspectors are knowledgable in the field and equipped to complete sampling so you will not have to pay even more money for a specialist to come out and carry out a supplementary inspection.
San Antonio Mold Inspection
This service is especially attractive for those looking at foreclosures and homes that have been uninhabited for extended periods of time. While this service is accessible to all clients, it is generally only suggested when a red flag is raised. A visual San Antonio mold inspection is included on every complete home inspection. Without testing, these is no way to know the levels of mold at a residence. Many people feel that paying a little extra cost is well worth knowing they are not buying someone else’s headaches; even if the inspector does not see any visible issues.
Mold spores are everywhere, we inhale these spores on a consistant 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 complications for people’s immune systems. Indoor growth can also create the existence of other toxic species of mold like Stachybotrys; which is not admissible at any level inside a building.
San Antonio Mold Testing
Our San Antonio mold testing procedure is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a standard 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 suggested but average it is 2-4 total.
After these mold tests are taken on site, they are sent to an independent 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 copy of the lab results and explanation of results will be part of your home inspection report. Customers that do have elevatedincreased levels of mold will be provided a procedure for mold removal steps to be carried our by a licensed mold remediation group.
