Any mold growth, in sufficient quantity, may contain enough of the dangerous mold types, to cause health concerns.

Is Mold Testing Necessary?

So, you discover that you have a patch of mold growing in your home behind a wall and are disgusted by its existence. Not only is it aesthetically repulsive, but now you are worried that health risks are not far behind.

If you never had the chance to deal with mold damage in your Wildwood Lake home before, you are likely going to listen to a variety of different sources, on the internet or otherwise that are full of advice to correct the situation. Some homeowners try different cleaning products on their own, in an attempt to save on the expense, while others think that by identifying the mold, they can rule out the necessity of cleaning or having services of any kind performed at all.

At SERVPRO, our expertly trained technicians have several years of experience in dealing with the existence of environmental issues, such as mold in your homes. When we discover mold growth in your home, our first thought has nothing to do with the type of mold that exists. Any mold growth, in sufficient quantity, may contain enough of the dangerous mold types, to cause health concerns.

If you decide that going to the local grocery store to purchase a mold testing kit, saves you from performing the required repairs on your home to get things under control, you are mistaken. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) even states that they do not recommend a routine sampling of molds and that there is no such thing as an acceptable or tolerable level of mold, it does not exist.

Therefore, if any amount of mold exists, and an individual has proven susceptible, a potential health risk exists. Meaning that regardless of the type of mold in your home, you should arrange for the proper remediation services from a quality certified remediation company, such as SERVPRO as soon as possible to rectify the situation occurring in your home.

Obtaining the proper insurance to handle these kinds of situations is only the beginning. It can also be beneficial to have access to a company, like SERVPRO, which provides you with the services and information that you need to help contain the problem and restore a safe, healthy environment that your family can enjoy. Contact SERVPRO of Bradley County before purchasing a basic mold testing kit at the local grocery store (423) 614-5552.
