There are a variety of issues that can affect any home in Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Siesta Key, Sarasota, Longboat Key, or the surrounding areas, but perhaps one of the worst is mold.
Mold can grow in areas that you don’t see and when you do finally see it visually, it has turned into a large problem. At Building Performance Solutions, we help to find this mold before it becomes a big problem by providing mold testing services. There can be a number of signs that can point to mold being an issue long before you would find it, so if you suspect that you may have mold in your home or building, call our team to schedule a time for us to perform mold testing. Keep everyone you know safe by doing mold testing today.
Aspects of Mold Testing
Mold testing from Building Performance Solutions can involve a number of different tests, but it all starts with a visual inspection of the property. There are areas where a mold infestation is more likely to happen and we can visually inspect those areas to see if there already is enough mold to be seen. From here there are a number of other tests that we can perform to help determine if there is mold present.
We can start by sampling air samples from different areas of the property to determine if mold spores are present in the air, as well as a rough comparison count. We can also incubate surface samples from different areas on the property to help determine if mold is present and to what degree. When we see mold, we can do a sampling of that mold to determine the kind of mold seen.
With these different approaches to mold testing, we can get a good picture of where mold is or may be located, as well as what kind of mold is present. At higher concentrations, mold can cause health issues that include increasing sneezing, coughing, headaches, and other ailments. While mold spores are nearly everywhere, it is when they land and grow that issues can start.
Goals of Mold Testing
When you have mold testing done at your property, whether that’s at your home, office building, commercial space, or other building in Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Siesta Key, Sarasota, Longboat Key, or elsewhere in Florida, the main goal is to determine if mold exists and just how concentrated the mold or mold spores are. The improvement of the air quality indoors is what we are after, as well as the remediation of mold if some is found to be growing. A healthier indoor environment is what everyone is after with mold testing, and our team at Building Performance Solutions is ready to help you do that.
