Mold inspection and testing services in central Florida, including Plant City and Lakeland.
If you suspect your home may have mold problems, our company can inspect for mold.
When your home sustains water damage, it is possible that it could also end up with mold growth. Signs of mold include a musty smell as well as people in the home exhibiting allergy-like symptoms. If you do suspect your home could have mold, it is important to have an inspection and test done as soon as possible. Mold can pose health risks to you and your loved ones if you do not have it removed.
We provide mold inspection and testing service for central Florida properties in Lakeland, Plant City, Winter Haven, and the neighboring communities.
Types of Mold Testing Available
When you think your home may have mold, it is tempting to just run to the store and buy a cheap home testing kit. However, these are not reliable as they can often yield false-positive results. They also are not statistically accurate and may cause you an unnecessary alarm if their results are not true. Instead of using a store-bought test, hire a professional who can perform the following types of tests:
- Air Sampling: Experts will take samples of air inside your home as well as a sample outside the home. These air samples will then be compared to determine whether your home has a high amount of mold spores inside.
- Surface Testing: The suspected surface is tested by placing a piece of tape onto it. The tape is then carefully lifted up and placed onto a glass dish that is sent to a laboratory for further testing.
Generally, you will receive your mold test results back within 2-4 days. If you want more immediate results, you may have to pay extra to get next day results. The entire testing process can cost a few hundred dollars depending on your location and the size of your home. If you want additional areas tested, then expect extra fees per area to cover the lab testing fees.
Once the test results come back, we will be able to assess the mold problem and figure out a game plan to remove the mold and perform mold remediation services for your central Florida property.
You should never try to remove mold on your own because you could end up breathing in excess spores that can cause additional health risks.
