Mold Testing in Bradenton Beach
Suspect Mold? You may want to get a reliable and certified company that will perform a professional mold test. If you are being affected by mold you may not even know it. The elderly, young children and people with breathing problems usually feel the effects of being in a mold environment before others. Allergic responses from mold may include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rashes like dermatitis.
There are 3 types of mold tests:
- Air testing will test the concentration of mold spores in the air.
- Bulk testing takes certain materials from the building or home for testing.
- Surface testing will take swabs of surfaces around the home or building to go to a lab.
You should also get a mold test if you are buying a home, especially if you do not know the previous home’s history. With a home purchase, having evidence of unusually high levels of mold spores in the house could significantly change the terms of the real estate transaction or even whether the transaction continues. Not all mold that appears black or dark is toxic. This is why if you find black mold which you suspect is giving you toxic symptoms then you should have it tested to identify the species of the mold so you know what steps need to be taken.
Having a mold test done by a qualified, state certified mold inspector should be your first step when thinking that mold may be an issue.
