Exposure to mold is a health risk to anyone but the following individuals are at a higher risk for averse health effects: infants, children, elderly, immune compromised patients, pregnant women and individuals with existing respiratory conditions.
Apart from being a major health hazard, mold is also a destroyer of property value. If your home or business is infested, you’re taking a huge financial risk and putting the people you care about in harm’s way.
Proper mold identification will tell you whether the mold is known to produce harmful toxins or not. But most mold testing facilities will charge hundreds of dollars to confirm mold and identify it.
we can test your home for mold.
And it’s so easy.
Step 1. Look for visible mold growth
Visible mold looks like black spots on a wall, ceiling, floor or inside cupboards (especially cupboards with plumbing in them). They might not be easy to spot so you’ll have to look closely. Get down on your hands and knees and examine your walls near the floor; lift carpets and furniture and look on the floor underneath them; get on a ladder and examine the ceiling. They might be small, but you’ll notice them.
Step 2. Tear off a 2- to 3-inch piece of scotch tape
Note: If you see mold growth in more than one place (say kitchen, washroom, bedroom and basement), we recommend taking a minimum of 3 samples. This is because the mold in the washroom is highly likely to be different from that in the basement or kitchen or ceiling.
