We can determine whether harmful mold is present in a home and posing a health risk to its occupants. Molds and mildews are names given to thousands of species of filamentous fungi. Exposure to bacteria and fungus in indoor air has become a significant health problem in residential environments and work settings. Mold spores are microscopic in size and are often hidden behind the homes finishes. There are over 20,000 different species of mold and they grow in a wide variety of colors, including red, white, gray, and black. Mold allergy symptoms typically vary from person to person. Some people develop itchy eyes, watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing and coughing, while others may only develop only one or two of these symptoms or none of them. We will provide a tape or swab sample if visible dis-colorization is present and microbiological growth is suspected. We can also provide an air sample if there is no visible presence of microbiological growth, however symptoms are being experienced. All of these samples would then be sent to a lab and a certified industrial hygienist for evaluation and recommendation.
