Virginia Beach Mold 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 accessible to all clients, it is generally only advocated when a red flag is raised. A visual Virginia Beach mold inspection is included on every all-inclusive home inspection. Without testing, these is no way to know the levels of mold at a residence. Many clients feel that paying a little extra money is well worth knowing they are not buying someone else’s dilemma; even if the inspector does not see any visible issues.
Mold spores are all around us, 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 quantity of nontoxic spores can cause issues for people’s immune systems. Indoor growth can also create the existence of other toxic species of mold like Stachybotrys; which is not tolerable at any level inside a building.
Virginia Beach Mold Testing
Our Virginia Beach mold testing measurement is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a baseline 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 infected. Additional samples can be purchased at $75 each. Every situation is different and there is really no way of know how many will be advocated 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 analysis. Here they will test 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 included in your home inspection report. Customers that do have excess levels of mold will be provided a procedure for mold removal steps to be carried our by a professional mold remediation company.
