Home Mold Test
Our Home Mold Inspection Service involves a multi-faceted approach:
Mold Inspection Cost
Mold Inspection costs can vary. Of course, the size of your home, contributing to the length of inspection is one of the biggest factors. Also, should you encounter mold in different areas of your home, the inspection company will want to test each separately in the event you have multiple types of mold in the home. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your specific needs in depth.

Depending on your particular circumstance, mold remediation can be offered in several different ways. Your mold testing company and your removal service should remain separate to avoid any conflict of interest.

What is Black Mold?
Black mold is a living organism. This is a minute organism that you will not see until it becomes a problem.
In the world of mold and mildew, it is clear that these organisms will need two important factors to continue growing. (Hint: These two areas are most important, because you take these away and you will get rid of toxic black mold).
The organisms will grow upon material in which they can eat. Many of these food sources are drywall, wood, and carpeting, etc.
Black mold will like locations in which there is moisture and high humidity. While there are different types of molds they all will need a comfortable location to amplify. This does not necessarily mean a warm place. Toxic black mold can grow in cold, dry, and humid location places as well.
When the black mold spore dries up, this is when the organism begins to spread like a dandelion flower in the wind. The Hyphae legs rip off the delicate spore and then attach somewhere a few centimeters down the way from the original source.
