Mold is found everywhere around us; it can be found outdoors and even inside our homes and businesses. While not visible to the human eye, little mold spores can survive in our homes and businesses for a long time, waiting for moisture to thrive on. When these spores come into contact with moisture, that is when mold can rapidly grow. This commonly happens when residential or commercial properties have been affected by floods or other water damages. It might not seem like mold is a big deal, but there are many adverse repercussions to not only your belongings, furniture, carpet, walls, and ceilings, but to your health as well. At Rescue Restoration, we want to ensure that our residential and commercial customers in Dallas, TX are not impacted by the harmful effects of mold, which is why we offer mold testing. With mold testing, commercial and residential customers can have more peace of mind, know how severe their mold contamination is, and stop it before it becomes toxic to their property. Our technicians have the equipment, training, and knowledge to detect mold, test it, and get it cleaned up immediately. If you are concerned that your home or business may have mold but you are unsure, call our technicians today at 469.626.9516 for mold testing in Dallas, TX.
What Causes a Home or Business to Flood?
There is the notion that mold testing for homes and businesses is that completely necessary. If you already see mold forming on your walls or ceilings, then testing is not essential. While this seems logical, it’s simply not true. Even if you do see the presence of mold on your property, you still can’t determine just by looking at it what kind of mold it is, if there are other areas in your home or business that has the mold that you can’t see, or tell you how serious the mold infestation is.
So if mold testing is important, why not buy an at-home mold testing kit that you can get at your local store? Because they are not a reliable test. Those at-home kits will often times make property owners more overwhelmed and scared than they should be. With every home or business, there is the exposure of mold. Remember those mold spores we talked about earlier? Those are in your home and business, so when you do an at-home testing, the results will always say you have mold, which in turn will freak people out.
A professional mold test can do a number of things that include
- A Visual Mold Inspection: Mold inspectors not only have the proper training to look at mold and determine the issue.
