While we don’t typically think about it, mold is actually all around us in the air. Fortunately, it is typically in quantities too small to bother us in Fort Myers, Tampa, Naples, Siesta Key, Sarasota, Longboat Key, and throughout the state of Florida. And yet, if conditions are right, mold can settle and grow in areas of our home that we likely don’t realize. Getting a mold inspection from Building Performance Solutions is the solution to find out if you have mold, and then if you do what can be done about it. There are several reasons why getting a mold inspection is a good idea, and when you speak with our team, we can explain just what happens with a mold inspection.

Protection For You as Well as The Building
You may not realize it, but you may already have a mold infestation. Different people react differently to mold, and while you may not notice a difference, other people might quickly notice a change in their breathing, including sneezing more or getting a headache after being in a room or in the house for a while. At the same time, that mold can also be doing structural damage to your home as well. Because mold grows with organic hosts, that means that your wood structure is ideal for mold to grow and thrive.
One thing that is common to see is that where you have water damage, you likely also have mold growth. Anytime there is water damage, whether from a weather event or from a burst pipe or other situation, you need to make sure that there is no mold growth. A mold inspection will determine if you have a mold growth in your home, how large it is, and can even assess what kind of mold it is and how to treat it – including black mold, pathogenic, allergenic or others.
Clearing The Air on Mold Inspections
The simple fact is that when you have a mold inspection, you will find out if you have mold as well as what kind of mold that you have. Once you know what kind of mold you have, you can make a plan of attack to kill it and then take steps to correct the situation that allowed the mold to grow in the first place. This all leads to your indoor air quality to be improved, positively affecting both your physical health as well as your mental health and acuity.
There are many different reasons why having a mold inspection is a smart move in Fort Myers, Tampa, Naples, Siesta Key, Sarasota, Longboat Key, and throughout the state of Florida. Whether that is to have as clean of air as possible, to keep your home structurally sound, or other reasons, the team from Building Performance Solutions is ready to help make your home as safe and healthy as possible.
