Mold Inspection & Removal

If you see signs of mold in your home you need to have a mold inspection performed.

There are two goals of a mold inspection. The first is to find any mold growing in your home. The second is to find the moisture problem which caused the mold to grow. 

Why You Should Have a Mold Inspection

When it comes to mold problems in the home, the earlier you can detect them the better. The longer mold is left the more it will grow and the harder it will be to remove. This is why it’s best to have a mold inspection performed at the first sign of mold in your home.

If you have a mold problem in your home then you’ll continually be breathing in mold spores from the air. These spores trigger allergic reactions like sneezing and a runny nose. The spores can also irritate areas of the body such as the throat and nose as well. Overall, the main symptoms mold causes are:

  • Sneezing and coughing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sore throat
  • Irritated skin
  • Sore eyes
  • Sinus problems
  • Breathing difficulty
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Feeling faint
  • Hair loss
  • Diarrhea
  • Tiredness
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
