There are many types of mold that can be found in and around your home. Some are naturally occurring molds that can be found outside in damp environs, while others can be found inside of homes and garages.
Some molds can be relatively benign, but some types of mold can release potentially harmful and poisonous mycotoxins. Mycotoxins, when inhaled, or when they come into contact with the skin, can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. Some molds can trigger relatively mild allergic reactions, while others can cause more serious health effects. Either way, mold is not something to be taken lightly.
With such an insidious and unwelcome intruder into your home, you want to make sure you put your trust into a company that has the mold inspection experience and mold testing expertise to take care of the problem safely and completely. Indoor-Restore Environmental Services has been a leader in the mold inspection industry for nearly 20 years. We have extensive experience in air quality contaminant detection and mold control, including mold inspection, mold testing and mold remediation.
Mold is not something you can just ignore, as it won’t go away on its own. Taking matters into your own hands by looking for solutions on web sites can compound the problem. This is because mold not only grows on surfaces you can see (areas you might be treating with bleach), but it also grows in places you can’t see. You think the problem has been resolved when you treat the contaminated area, but mold will continue to grow and cause greater damage and increase the harm to you and your family.
Mold and fungus grow because the conditions for its formation are just right. Moisture and poor air circulation are prime mold growing environments and these conditions can occur regardless of where you live, whether it is near the San Bernardino National Forest, or down by the Santa Ana River. Mold formation doesn’t discriminate based on the age of your San Bernardino home, either. Newer homes are built to keep the effects of the weather out, such as moisture or cold wind, but that also means less natural air circulation to keep the air dry if there is a source of moisture, such as a pipe that leaks, or a drain that drips under your sink or behind your walls. Old homes can have leaks from old pipes and often have faltering roofs, allowing moisture entry and mold formation. So regardless of the age of your San Bernardino home, Indoor-Restore knows how to address the indoor environmental problems unique to your situation.
San Bernardino | Mold Inspection & Mold Testing
Indoor mold is attributable to a variety of negative health effects, such as minor stuffiness and throat irritation to more severe reactions such as lung infections for people with mold allergies. Sometimes you just don’t feel right and can’t figure out why. Mold may be the reason. Even healthy people, regardless of age, are affected by mold, as reported by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in a 2004 study. The most common problem reported were respiratory tract problems such as sneezing, coughing and runny nose.
Indoor-Restore can address all of these indoor environmental issues to bring relief to you and your family. The first thing we do is perform a mold inspection in your home to localize the source of the mold and determine the severity of the problem. Next we test the suspected areas with air sampling and with surface detection methods. These mold testing samples are sent to a third-party lab and when the results are known we will email the results to you with the inspector’s notes and laboratory findings.
Our Report Interpretation Department is available by phone to go over any of the details and answer any questions you may have about the mold inspection report. We can also discuss various methods of abatement and remediation, if appropriate.
