Frequently Asked Questions
Regarding Mold Testing
Can I clean up mold myself?
In some instances yes. In other instances, simply removing the visible mold from the surface may not be enough. Any porous material that mold is growing on usually needs to be assessed and removed by a professional. When disturbed, mold has been known to release spores into the environment, which could then spread to other areas of the house if not contained properly. There is also always a chance for a large amount of unseen mold in the area that many people may overlook. It is best to hire a professional trained to look for any situation where mold may be present.
What are some signs that would indicate that I need my home tested for mold?
If you've had water damage in your home, discoloration of walls, floors or ceilings, or unexplained allergic reactions, or musty odor, your home might be infected with mold. All of these are indications of a mold problem. We also recommend testing your home for mold if it is exposed to large amounts of moisture.
Is mold harmful to me?
Only about 1 in 4 people are really affected by mold. One person can sit by mold all day without being effected while another person has crippling allergic reactions from that same mold. Some forms of mold are also more dangerous than others.
What are common areas affected by mold?
The most common areas affected by mold are areas prone to moisture. Mold can also grow in hidden areas of the home, such as bathrooms and under the floor. Also look for anywhere outside air and humidity are combined with the home's cooled air.
How can I prevent mold growth in my home?
Although you can't mold-proof your home, you can identify problem areas and practice mold prevention. Proper ventilation, instantly drying wet areas, utilizing mold-resistant products, and simply cleaning your home are all things you can do to reduce your risk of having mold develop in your home. It is recommended to keep the relative humidity in your home at or below 50%.
What are the health effects of exposure?
Some of the main potential asbestos related health issues are Mesothelioma, Asbestosis, and various cancers. Asbestos fibers are extremely small and resilient so once they get in your lungs there is no way to get them out. While asbestos related diseases take many years, often 20-40, to develop the EPA has not designated a safe level of exposure. In certain cases research suggests a minimal amount of exposure can cause serious illness.
Where can I find asbestos?
Any tile and vinyl flooring installed before 1985 is suspect. Other possibilities are mastic glues, patching used in wall and ceiling joints, walls and floors around fireplaces can have asbestos paper lining, piping may have asbestos insulation or wraps, and window caulk could be containing.
How do I know if a material contains asbestos?
The only way to know if a material contains asbestos is to look at it under a microscope. There is no way to identify asbestos with the naked eye.
What is ACM?
ACM is known as asbestos-containing material, which is commonly found in homes built or renovated before 1980. In some circumstances, it is even seen in homes built up to 1985.
Can I remove asbestos myself?
As a homeowner, you are allowed to remove asbestos on your own. However, the dangers and potential health risks should be strongly considered first. Asbestos is impossible to see without a microscope and once made friable it can spread throughout your house without you realizing it. We recommend at the very least having any suspected materials tested before removal.
How is asbestos removed?
Our professionals will assess the risk and contain the infected area. Our team wears head-to-toe protective gear to clean and remove the infected areas.
Can asbestos travel to other areas?
Yes, once asbestos fibers are released into the air they will not easily settle. Fibers can travel a great distance in your home without you knowing it.
