Some types of mold are harmless, but even if they are, they signal other problems. Other types of mold can be extremely dangerous for your health and should be removed immediately. We do give you tips and tricks on how to recognize mold and have an idea of whether or not it’s dangerous, but you should still never attempt mold removal yourself. When you decide to hire a professional for a mold inspection, there are a few things you should know about the inspection process.
What is your mold inspector searching for?
There are two main things that a mold inspector will be after when he or she is in your home: if there is mold and if so, where the water causing the mold is coming form. It’s important to have a mold inspection on a regular basis even if you aren’t suspicious of mold growing in your home. It can be hard to find, invisible, and causing health problems that you haven’t caught yet.
You’ll be asked to answer a few questions.
Signs of mold aren’t always what you think they are; if you or anyone in your family has repeatedly gotten sick without any sure sign of what is causing the illness, you may have mold hiding in your home. An inspector will ask questions about this, as well as about any water problems you may have had since your last inspection. Leaks and floods can very easily cause mold.
What happens if the inspector finds mold?
In the case that your home has mold in it, you’ll need to seek remediation immediately. If you have found a colony of mold on your own, you should not try doing any mold remediation on your own. It could be toxic and disturbing it may cause serious health issues for you. Always call a professional in. They will be able to recognize the mold for what it is and remove it safely for you.
If you’ve had any water damage recently or noticed a strange odor in your home, you should hire someone to come check for mold and prepare for mold remediation. Mold isn’t something to mess around with.
