Pretesting and Post Testing for Mold
Our state-of-the-art mold remediation jobs begin with pre-testing areas suspected of a mold infestation. Pre-testing consists of sampling air quality using spore traps that can detect mold spores floating in a home’s atmosphere. We also take samples of mold and sending the samples to an American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) accredited laboratory for analysis
There are several signs that you have mold damage in your building:
- HVAC system has strange odors
- The grout around your tiles is black
- Peeling wallpaper or discoloration on your walls
- There’s an odor of wet newspapers in your home
There are several common types of house mold found using pretesting techniques. Cladosporium thrives on wood and fabric materials. It can cause allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, coughing, and itchiness. Alternaria will trigger symptoms of a cold or allergy, Alternaria tends to develop on wallpaper, carpets, AC ducts, and textiles. Leaking pipes, minor flooding, or other water disasters may lead to the growth of Chaetomium, a mold that may cause sneezing, runny nose, headaches, and nose bleeds. Penicillium/Aspergillus is a common mold type flourishes in moderate humidity and moisture. Some people react to Aspergillus by getting sick with hypersensitivity pneumonitis, an illness causing lung inflammation and flu-like symptoms.
