Are you concerned you may have mold and mildew in your Milwaukee WI home, workplace, or other structure? If you are concerned about the presence of mold and mildew, or if a home inspector or other specialist has informed you about mold and mildew, you may wish to arrange an assessment with Healthy Home Mold Inspectors. Below is a quick introduction of what we do during a regular evaluation:
The preliminary step in identifying a possible mold and mildew problem is the visual examination. Throughout this phase, we will be searching for three factors: proof of water leakage or intrusion, visual indicators of of mold and mildew development, as well as locations with a capacity for mold growth in the future. An assessment will encompass the interior living area, attic area, basement as well as the crawl space or storage area. The exterior of the dwelling will also be examined for indicators of water damage or or structural issues that might lead to moisture seepage into the dwelling.
Direct sampling is implemented to detect mold and mildew kinds on a surface area.
This strategy is useful in identifying if you have mold and mildew in locations where there is discoloration or other signs of mold-like conditions. If you have mold and mildew in areas where there is discoloration or other possible mold-like conditions, this technique is beneficial in figuring out if the substance is mold. For this sampling technique a clear tape or swab sample is used to collect mold-like product. Product accumulated on the tape or swab will be examined with a fungi screen or culture by an independent lab.
Air sampling is one of the most reliable strategies for establishing whether mold is present in a particular area. Our test utilizes an air sampling cassette. Air quality is examined by using a vacuum machine that draws air across a slide. The sample is then sent out to an independent lab where the spores are grouped by category and counted. An outside comparison sample is taken to determine a common mold count in your location on the day the mold tests are taken.
The independent laboratory will send us the results from your mold testing samples, which we will go over with you and provide you a copy. The information we provide to you from the mold testing will contain information like the type of mold, how much mold and mildew exists, description of the mold and mildew characteristics and issues, comparison of mold and mildew amounts found compared with “routine” quantities of mold located in your location, etc. We do a lot more than inform you “you have mold and mildew.” We also include a report identifying the causes of the mold and the best ways to eliminate it through mold remediation and mold removal methods.
When we make you knowledgeable about the outcome of the mold tests, you will be the one to choose what to about the mold issues. We will offer you a written outline of steps you can take on your own to eliminate the mold, or suggest a mold remediation protocol if you want to hire a mold removal company. We can also carry out post mold removal screening to see to it your home has been appropriately cleaned by the mold removal company.
