THE BENEFITS OF A MOLD TEST
1. Peace of Mind - Knowing if you have areas suspect to moisture intrusion that may be conducive to fungal growth. The intent of this survey is to identify areas that may be in need of microbial sampling. You will know if there are any current moisture problems that need fixing, and what sampling should be done to see if any fungal growth now exists.
2. Healthy Home - Make your home as healthy as possible for you & your family. The presence of certain mold and mold spores in housing can result in mild to severe health effects in humans and can deteriorate the building materials in the dwelling resulting in structural damage. Health effects include, but are not limited to: asthma, allergy symptoms, watery eyes, sneezing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, sinus congestion, blurry vision, sore throat, dry cough, aches and pains, skin irritation, bleeding of the lungs, headaches, memory loss and fever. As humans vary greatly in their chemical make-up, so does the individual's reaction to mold exposure. For some people, a small number of mold spores can cause ill effects. In others it may take a more substantial exposure.
3. Knowing the health condition of the home you are buying - The more information you have about the home you are buying, the better you will be at making an informed decision about purchasing it.
