Serving Residents in the Boston, MA Area With Certified Home Mold Inspections
Home mold inspections are the only way to ensure that the air quality in your residence is safe for your family members. At ASAP Environmental, Inc., our experienced inspectors are certified for microbial inspections by the Indoor Air Quality Association Council.
The Prevalence of Mold in Buildings
Any construction flaw or damage to the structure that allows moisture to enter creates the potential for mold growth. Wood, cellulose, and other organic building materials provide fertile conditions for mold when they become wet. Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate that approximately 35 percent of American homes are water-damaged each year, so the opportunity for mold to damage structures and cause illness to occupants is substantial. Rooms with high water usage, including laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens, are also susceptible to mold growth.
Health Effects of Mold Exposure
Mold spores can grow in almost any environment, whether indoors or outdoors, and almost everyone is exposed to at least some level of mold. While everyone is exposed to some amount of mold, indoor mold growth leads to increased exposure and a multiplied potential for health issues. Living or working in a building with a significant mold problem can lead to serious and chronic health problems, particularly for infants and young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and individuals with compromised or weakened immune systems, allergies, asthma, and other breathing problems.
What Our Inspections Involve
Our thorough mold inspections are conducted using advanced equipment, including thermal imaging and moisture meters, to provide a full picture of mold present in the home. Each inspection includes a moisture assessment, air quality and surface sampling, microscopic analysis by a certified microbiology lab, detailed analysis and reporting, consulting about your mold remediation options, and oversight throughout the process.
