What Makes Mold So Dangerous?

Most building owners recognize that mold isn't good to have around. However, not as many people fully understand just how dangerous it is. Mold, especially black mold, presents numerous health risks to anyone who spends a lot of time on the premises, whether it's a workplace or a home. From mild allergic reactions to chronic sleeping problems to severe respiratory complications, the effects of mold exposure are nothing to take lightly.

That's why you need to call Common Sense Inspections ASAP when you suspect mold growth. We'll perform thorough black mold testing and inspect all the nooks and crannies of your property to find where it may be hiding. Testing for mold in homes and businesses is how we make sure our friends and neighbors stay healthy.

Why You Need Professional Mold Inspection and Testing

Why do you suspect you have mold in the first place? Many times, it's because you have a flood-prone basement or poor ventilation in your bathroom, and you know the conditions are ripe for mold growth. Other times, it's because you can smell that musty, mildew-y odor and you're sure something must be contaminated. But no matter what's causing you to suspect the presence of mold, you can't be certain until you have a specialist take a look.

Often, mold is super-hidden and practically invisible to the untrained eye. It will lurk in places you never even see simply because you don't know where to search. And if you can see something growing, it's easy to misidentify it. There are many different mold species, and they come in a variety of colors. Therefore, you may not even know what you're looking at. This is what makes professional black mold testing so crucial.

Mold Remediation Referrals

If our business or home mold testing service does come back positive for mold, you'll be tempted to go out and buy a bottle of bleach and clean it up yourself. Don't. By attempting DIY mold cleanup, you could potentially make the situation worse. If you don't properly dry, disinfect, and sanitize the area, you could wind up spreading it around instead of eliminating it. Furthermore, mold can be toxic, and whoever is doing the cleaning must be certain to follow the correct safety protocol.

All of this is to say that mold remediation absolutely must be performed by a specialist. However, state laws prohibit the same company from doing both mold testing and mold removal. So, while Common Sense Inspections will not be able to perform the remediation ourselves, we will happily point you in the right direction to ensure you get the qualified remediation services you need.
