The presence of mold in your home can impact your investment considerably. Even more importantly, unabated mold exposure over extended periods of time may result in serious adverse health effects. 

Partnering with a Home Solutions specialist to test for mold can help identify a mold issue before it gets out of hand, ultimately equipping you with the information you need to make informed investments and responsible residential decisions.

Indoor Mold & Your Health

Mold might sound a little scary. And that fear comes with good reason. Exposure to indoor mold can, in fact, be quite harmful. The best way to arrive at a conclusive mold assessment and create a treatment plan, if necessary, is to start with a mold test from an Home Solutions professional. 

To keep you and your investment safe and prevent mold exposure, Home Solutions mold specialists test the air in your home using state-of-the-art mold equipment, including an air pump and sampling cassette. After gathering the air sample, we immediately send it to a leading analytic lab for expert results. If any mold presence becomes obvious during the sampling phase or is pointed out to an Home Solution mold specialist by a property owner, we can also swab the area by hand and expedite it to our lab partners for additional analysis

While it is true that mold can be found both indoors and outdoors, individual sensitivity levels to mold differ from person to person, and inhalation of spores becomes more likely if those spores are present indoors. According to the CDC, individuals with heightened sensitivities, allergies or asthma may experience “intense reactions” to mold exposure. 

Further scientific studies conducted by the Institute of Medicine and World Health Organization suggest that indoor mold exposure can even cause upper respiratory tract symptoms and may be responsible for increasing the chance young children develop asthma.
