St. Louis Mold Inspection & Testing

As you already understand a home is not just somewhere you live, it is also a large purchase; for most the largest one they will make in their lifetime. St. Louis Testing may be recommended if our technician notes clear mold, excess moisture or water intrusion. If a property has excess 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 experts 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 secondary inspection.

Without testing, these is no way to know the levels of mold at a property. Many customers 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 issues.

 

Mold spores are everywhere, we inhale these spores on a regulareveryday 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 respiratory 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.

Our St. Louis mold testing process is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a standard for what is to be expectednormal 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 tainted. 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 commonly it is 2-4 total.
After these mold tests are collected 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 how much of each. You will be sent a copy of the lab findings and explanation of results will be combinedwith 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 company.
