American Mold Inspection
Why test for mold?
Scientific testing has revealed that the air inside of homes and buildings can sometimes be more polluted than outside air. When mold is found thriving in indoor environments the health risk or hazard to susceptible individuals can increase significantly. At particular risk can be children, the elderly, or the chronically ill, and those who suffer from respiratory ailments such as allergies, or asthma
Mold is Everywhere
Mold Needs Moisture to Thrive - For healthy indoor air quality, indoor environments should always be kept clean, dry, and as mold free as possible.
Fungal Contamination
Mold can be visible, or sometimes hidden. AMI mold inspectors can take both surface and air samples, including attic mold, basement mold and in/behind wall mold sample(s) collection for laboratory analysis.
Why Inspect and Test for Mold?
Individuals are exposed to some type of mold on a daily basis. These microscopic organisms reside indoors and outside and are the decomposers of organic substances that are vital to life on earth. Molds need a food source, moisture, time, and to be left undisturbed. Individuals are exposed to molds through contact with skin, ingestion, and the air we breathe. Moisture conducive to mold growth can exist in all indoor climates regardless of geographic location. Most molds, given the right conditions, have the potential to cause ill health effects in susceptible individuals. Some individuals can suffer no apparent ill effects in a moldy environment while others can suffer from a relatively small amount of mold spores.
Mold inspection and mold testing services should always be considered when individuals, or businesses, suspect mold health risk, or hazard, to occupants in an indoor environment.
