Mold Testing in Glen Cove

Contrary to popular belief, not all molds are harmful. But a buildup of high concentrations of mold spores can cause problems, both health-wise and in terms of structural damage. It's also important to note that not everyone reacts to mold exposure, but some people are more susceptible.

If you have allergies or a weak immune system, you may be more vulnerable to a reaction. The reaction may vary from mild to severe, depending on how much mold you're exposed to.

Besides causing health problems, mold can cause a lot of damage to your property if left unaddressed. Mold can grow on any organic substance, and buildings are full of these materials: wood, cardboard, and cloth, just to mention a few.

Under the right conditions mold can:

  • Eat away your carpet, wallpaper, drywall, and other structures in your building or home.
  • Rot wooden surfaces.
  • Create cosmetic discoloration.
  • Cause ceilings and walls to crumble in extreme cases.

Mold can be destructive. It's for this reason that if you suspect there is mold, you should get your business or home tested and inspected for mold by Sunbird Carpet Cleaning Glen Cove before it gets out of hand.

What Are The Tell-Tale Signs of Mold?

Besides the black mold symptoms mentioned above, here's how to tell if there is mold or mildew on your premises:

  • A musty or earthy odor
  • Soggy ceiling, cracks or watermarks on walls and ceiling
  • If you recently experienced flooding or water leaks where the ares remained wet for at least 24 to 48 hours.

While some mold is noticeable, it can also hide behind less accessible spots like drywall, chimneys, and HVACs. These sneaky spores can remain undetected for quite a while and wreak plenty of havoc, as we stated above.

This is where mold testing and inspection come in handy. A mold inspector not only may poke around spots you might not, but will also be equipped with all the necessary mold testing equipment for accurate results.

How Is Mold Testing Performed?

This process involves taking samples of air or from surfaces in suspected areas and sending them to the lab for analysis. There are several testing methods, and the mold inspector will determine the best option that's needed in your home or building.

Here's what Sunbird Carpet Cleaning Glen Cove offers in a nutshell:

  • Air Sampling - This technique involves collecting small amounts of indoor air for laboratory analysis. This process will help us identify and define the extent of the mold problem. It also plays a vital role in assessing the occupants' exposure to mold growths. We can also take samples after remediation to verify success removal.
  • Moisture & Leak Detection - Mold thrives in moist and wet areas. Water leaks sometimes can go undetected for a significant amount of time, and the aftermath can be catastrophic. Structural damage, high water bills, mold, and mildew are some of the risks involved. Early detection can avert all that and save you money. We use modern leak technology to identify the exact spot of the water leak without damaging your property. Once the leak is found, we offer real-time solutions to your problems.
  • Surface Sampling - While the primary goal of surface sampling is to ascertain the presence of mold, it also helps identify the mold's location. Samples are collected using tape, wipe, bulk, or swab. The biggest advantage of using this direct examination is that it shows exactly what's on the surface.
  • Visual Mold Inspection - Before mold testing, our mold inspectors will conduct a visual mold inspection of your home or facility to determine if you're dealing with mold. The inspector will check both accessible and hidden places for mold, water leaks, and damp spots.

Can I Do Mold Testing by Myself?

We get questions like this all the time, and the basic answer is no.

However, these kits do not tell you the type of mold present in your home. It also doesn't reveal the location, source of moisture, and how to get rid of mold.
