There are thousands of mold species, of various colors and characteristics, and they all present an all-too-common issue. Epidemiological studies have shown that exposure to mold for some people can lead to considerable health problems such as: respiratory symptoms, asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, bronchitis, and respiratory infections. On top of health risks, if there is a significant mold presence in a building, this moisture intrusion can lead to damaged building materials and costly repairs.
Testing for Mold Contamination
Unlike some other contaminants, mold is unique because there are no federal or state exposure limits—and it can be found almost anywhere. As mold is ubiquitous, and there is a lack of standards, simply performing a test or two will often lead to an incomplete picture, misdiagnosis, Band-Aid approaches, or even needless panic. When you need to detect a mold problem, you need precise testing and quick, lasting solutions, especially when dealing with hidden mold.
