Taking pride in one’s own property usually means that the burden of constant inspection and maintenance can be never-ending. Sometimes minor fixes are needed, but for Carson properties, more involved professional services are required. This is certainly the case when it comes to the health hazard known as mold; mold inspection and mold testing.
Carson, California is located just south of Los Angeles, and only minutes away from busy, international LAX airport. The diversity of the city’s population is evidenced in an equal mixing of African-American, Asian, and Caucasian residents, who come together to call Carson, “home”. Three-quarters of these residents own their own homes.
Carson, California is close enough to the Pacific Ocean to get the “June Gloom” effect of summer foggy mornings that burst into sunshine later in the day. A visit to nearby Dr. Martin Luther King Library might be just the thing to do during an overcast morning in Carson. The StubHub Center sporting complex provides more recreational opportunities.
The campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills, welcomes a diverse student population and is a great commuter school for many of the southern Los Angeles students in the area. In fact, the university was established in the mid 1960’s to encourage equal opportunities for higher education to all ethnicity groups.
If you are concerned about a property in the Carson area and want a complete, professional mold inspection and mold testing done, please contact local Indoor-Restore Environmental Services. We specialize in making your indoor environment safe and healthy. Residents who have mold concerns can discuss their needs with one of our highly-trained mold inspection and mold testing technicians. Our technicians are expertly trained in mold-detection techniques and use state-of-the-art detection methods, including infrared thermal imaging assessment.
At times, mold damage is difficult to spot. Sometimes mold colonies are evident to your sense of sight or smell, but it takes a professional inspector to search hidden recesses of the property, including attics, crawlspaces, and behind walls and cabinetry. Carpeting and wallpaper are often used to “cover” mold growth, but our inspectors can still find mold at its source. Although mold spores are airborne and can travel from place to place to establish new mold colonies, mold requires the correct range of temperatures and dampness to form.
Our Carson mold inspection and mold testing specialists look for damp areas, paying careful attention to areas prone to leaks from plumbing or from the outside. Roofs, windows, and doors are carefully inspected.
If flooding has occurred, areas have to be dried out thoroughly within 48 hours to prevent mold from possibly growing. Once a visual mold inspection is done, our mold inspection and mold testing technicians will begin to take indoor air samples (for high concentrations of mold spore activity and other allergens) and perform surface swabbing. All mold testing samples taken from the properties we service are taken to an independent lab for analysis. It is important to have an impartial, third-party laboratory perform the analysis of the mold testing. This gives you the assurance you need that more than one professional service has made determinations concerning what types of molds and quantities have been discovered. A “second opinion” always protects the consumer. Once lab reports are back, Indoor-Restore will develop a complete report of the findings from the mold inspection and present it. We will do our best to answer any questions that arise and will be prepared to provide next steps, pricing, and plans for any mold remediation, if needed. If work is required, we provide a full warranty for our mold removal services.
If you are a home owner in the Carson area, and want to protect your valuable property from mold damage, please contact us for mold inspection and accredited mold testing. We look forward to being a resource to you.
