Mould testing and inspection are a very important practice in the building and construction industries. Mold spores are the cause of many diseases and illnesses, including allergies, sinusitis and asthma. As soon as a building client or occupational hygienist has noticed some discolouration or wispy spots on your walls, he or she will require mold inspections and testing for that particular area. There are many advantages to regularly testing and inspecting your home for any mould growth, and here are some of them.
Regular mold testing and inspections can prevent a lot of problems for your customers and employees, not to mention it can help you save a lot of money on repair bills. When you test and inspect your home for mould growth you are able to find areas where moisture collects, such as plumbing vents, under the floorboards, or around window sills and skylights. You may also need to test and inspect places such as basements, attics and crawlspaces. It is also important to check and make sure there is no dampness within your house and in your air ducts as this will allow mold spores to grow in the air.
If your inspection and testing conclude that there are no mold spores present in your environment, then it’s up to you to take the next step. If you have detected an infestation and it is deemed an ongoing problem, you will need to contact a professional mould removal service or mould remediation company who will perform an immediate remediation procedure and mold removal job. This is usually the best course of action because it will not only prevent further damage to your property, but will also help to restore breathing space to the people within your household. You will be able to breathe easier once you have removed the mold from your air, carpet and furnishings.
