While there are many reasons a person may want to have their home tested for mold, I want to go over the top 3 reasons I see for having a mold inspection.
- There can be a price for procrastination. Mold only grows when it has a source of moisture. That moisture can be because of water intrusion, like a leaking pipe, or faulty foundations or walls in your home. Or it could be a result of high humidity caused by lack of ventilation or dehumidification in an area. While the mold is a major problem, it really is only a symptom of the moisture. If left unattended, it can result in a lot of property damage to the home or business, and its contents.
- Health risks. The EPA lists effects of indoor air problems as nonspecific symptoms rather than clearly defined illnesses. These symptoms can vary widely but can include headaches, fatigue, coughing, shortness of breath, sinus congestion, sneezing, eye, nose and throat irritation, skin irritation, dizziness, and nausea. In some Sometimes these symptoms are mild, but in some cases, they can be very severe. These symptoms can lead a person to suspect the quality of their air and the need for air quality testing.
- Peace of mind. Sometimes situations come up and people just want peace of mind, like when a new baby is being brought into the home. Or a sick relative will be moving into the home to be looked after. If a person is buying a new home. In these cases that peace of mind that the indoor air quality is good is important to the home or business owner.
Testing for mold is a complicated process when done thoroughly and involves many factors. Some of these factors include a complete inspection of the area and home to try and find the source of the mold. Determining the best kind of test needed for the situation and interpreting the results of the test at the end of the project. Be sure to always hire a certified professional to ensure that your test results are accurate.
Testing for black mold does not differ from any other mold testing. The difference comes in the interpretation of the lab reports. Testing done by most mold certified people will include a lab report showing what specific species were found in the test.
Black mold, or toxigenic mold, is a mold capable of producing toxins, also known as mycotoxins. All molds can cause allergic reactions, but special attention is given to health concerns from mycotoxin producing molds. Although there are hundreds of molds that can appear in an indoor environment, only a small number produce these mycotoxins. One of the most common one of these is Stachybotrys Chartarum.
Mycotoxins are a group of metabolic byproducts produced by molds that grow indoors and out. Some of these mycotoxins has been shown to produce adverse health effects at high doses.
