When the temperature and moisture levels are right, mold spores can grow quite rapidly in a short time period requiring the need for mold inspection and mold testing.
Mold Inspection in Oceanside
With an average humidity level in Oceanside, California ranging anywhere from 45% to well over 100%, there is plenty of moisture in the air year round, which inhibits mold growth and allows it to thrive and spread not only on the outside of your home, building or office, but on the inside as well.
When mold overtakes your Oceanside property, what should you do? With the assistance of a certified mold inspection professional, you can have the problem eradicated quickly. Indoor-Restore Environmental Services is the leading provider of mold testing services. Our certified mold specialists and network of laboratories and mold testing partners have the expertise needed to properly conduct mold testing in order to identify the presence and type of mold that’s in your property. This allows us to provide a clear and concise process for removing the mold.
People frequently won’t notice the excess mold spores at all until they start smelling a musty odor, or by chance see it growing, and by then the spores can be in the air and affecting your health. When we conduct mold testing services, it allows us to measure the amount of mold in a residential or commercial building by determining the level of mold spores in the air. Once we confirm through mold testing that there is a mold growth in or around your home, we can let you know the risks associated with the mold, and the best course of action to remove it.
Mold testing services are available to all property types in Oceanside, California, using standard mold testing by conducting swab sampling or air-o-cell testing. With air-o-cell mold testing we can identify different kinds of mold and will be able to see a measurable amount of mold spores’ activity. During an on-site inspection, air samples are taken outside of your property to gather a baseline of mold spores present. Once we assess the outside of your home, we take suspect mold samples inside to check the spore count. If higher on the inside, this would indicate that there is a presence, or even an absence, of a mold issue throughout your Oceanside property, which will need to be taken care of professionally.
Once an analysis is performed on the mold samples gathered, the mold inspection professionals at Indoor-Restore Environmental Services will then be able to determine which type of mold treatment is necessary to remedy your home or office.
Why You Should Have a Mold Inspection and Mold Testing
Mold testing in Oceanside is detrimental due to Oceanside’s climate. On average, this area sees roughly 10 inches of rain per year or more. This amount of precipitation can cause moisture to build up in and around buildings and the moisture can set up mold inside, as well as outside. While homes may have dark areas, such as attics or crawlspaces, or stay warm, especially in climates like in Oceanside, those areas can become breeding grounds for mold if there is moisture present.
Mold essentially needs moisture to grow. Most real estate agents can tell you how crucial mold testing is, especially for properties which may have been closed up for long periods of time. Before purchasing a home or office, you should absolutely have it inspected and tested for mold to ensure the safety of you and your guests or business associates.
Indoor air quality testing can also be performed to determine if the source is something other than mold.There has been a plethora of new building construction in Oceanside in the last several years. Most new construction is performed with little or no air flow to ensure that the home or office is well insulated. While this is perfect for controlling the indoor temperatures in a home and assists with heating and cooling costs, it also tends to trap moisture inside a structure and moisture will cause mold growth. Mold growth spreads very rapidly and can become very menacing to those who are living or working with it present.
Listed here are signs to watch out for. If you notice any, a professional mold inspection service should be considered:
Odd smells which include mustiness or odors.
