Mold Testing in Indianapolis, IN
You don’t want mold in your home — whether it’s on your food, in your shower, or in your basement. Unfortunately, mold doesn’t always live in easily accessible places like the refrigerator or the shower curtain. If you have a leaky pipe inside your walls, mold may grow in there without you ever knowing about it.
Even if you can’t see the mold in your home, it can cause health problems for you and your family. If you need mold testing in Indianapolis, IN, contact Residential Mold Services.
Why Mold Is a Problem
Mold in your home can contribute to various physical complaints from headaches to sneezing to fatigue. Children, the elderly, and anyone with a compromised immune system are especially vulnerable to the effects of mold.
Long-term exposure to mold can also lead to increased chances of developing chronic illnesses like asthma.
The presence of mold also leads to more mold growth — even if you quickly throw out moldy food or sanitize your bathtub, mold spores have been released into the air and may land and grow elsewhere.
How Mold Testing Works
Mold testing services can be done on the air or on the surface in your home.
Mold spreads by releasing microscopic spores into the air, so we use sticky spore traps to catch any mold spores that are in the air. These spores can then be tested to determine what types of mold are in the air in your home.
Surface testing is more self-explanatory. If mold is visible on any surfaces in your home, we can take a piece of it to the lab (either by taking a chunk off, using a swab, or using tape) and test it to determine what kind of mold it is.
