Mold is part of the natural environment. It can be found both in indoors and outdoor spaces. The presence of mold in indoor spaces can have negative effects on human health. The potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory ailments.
Mold reproduces through tiny spores, which are continually wafting through indoor and outdoor air streams. The presence of mold spores in humid indoor spots may lead to unchecked mold growth and reproduction. Affected surfaces may include wood, paper, carpets, food and a number of other household items and surfaces. When moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed.
The purpose of the mold sampling service is to attempt to detect the presence of mold by performing collecting samples with an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) device. Your inspector will collect and handle samples properly to keep the chain of custody and send them for analysis by a third party laboratory.
We will provide you the completed laboratory’s analysis when it’s done. The price for a Mold Sampling service is $199.oo when it is done together with a general home inspection. The service by itself has a cost of $259.oo.
