Mold Testing And Inspections By J&C Grandt Inspections
As a homeowner or buyer, ensuring your property is safe for you and your family is one of your primary responsibilities. While you may check to see if the doors and windows of the place are sturdy, it’s easy to forget to inspect the house’s internal integrity. Residences located in regions of high moisture or those that have experienced water damage (due to leaks or flooding) are often susceptible to mold infestations. When mold takes root in a house, it can slowly but surely deteriorate your home’s structural integrity and your health.
The easiest way to assess a house’s condition before buying it is to have it professionally tested or inspected for the presence mold. At the same time, if you’ve had plumbing leaks or water seepage through the roof, walls, or floors, you need to have your home routinely checked for mold.
The dangers of mold infestations
The presence of mold in your house can aggravate allergies and even cause asthma as the spores it releases can enter your nasal passage and cause irritation to mucus tracts. Milder issues may include itchy skin and eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, throat irritation, and coughing. If the mold in your home continuously affects your body this way, your immune system’s efficiency could drop, leaving you vulnerable to respiratory ailments or other illnesses.
Besides this, if the mold in your home is left unchecked, it can severely damage your property, making it unfit for living. When mold takes over your walls and ceiling, it impairs their integrity. That means, if immediate action isn’t taken, they could become unsteady and threaten your family’s safety.
When should you get mold inspections or testing done?
The best time to test or inspect a building for mold is when you suspect that there is a mold problem, and the people who live in your house (family or tenants) are showing signs of sensitivity to mold. At the same time, if you’re experiencing moisture problems, getting a mold inspection or test can help you determine if there is mold growth within your property. You can accordingly take immediate action.
