The only way to remove high levels of spores in the air is through extensive air cleaning. Being able to see mold can be just the beginning of the bigger picture when it comes to mold problems. Usually, once you can see the mold actually on your walls, or other fixtures in your home it will take a professional to complete mold remediation to restore your home to a safe and healthy environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What health risks should I be concerned about for my family and me?

Anyone who is exposed to mold on a long-term basis will likely begin to exhibit symptoms for various health issues. Elevated mold levels can cause all kinds of allergy symptoms when exposed to mold for an extended period. Even slightly elevated levels of mold can affect some people very adversely.  The range of symptoms varies from person to person. People with already compromised immune systems, the elderly, young children are usually the most affected by mold issues. Some common areas that people experience health issues from mold include:

  • Mental or neurological symptoms
  • Respiratory symptoms
  • Vision and Eye problems such as dry eyes
  • Circulatory problems
  • Skin problems
  • And other illnesses and disorders
If a Mold Inspector finds mold, what should I do? Vacate my home?

When you hire a mold inspector, they will provide you with a plan of action, and from the lab results, they will be able to help you decide if you should leave the premised during the remediation for the mold. Typically they can isolate the work area where evacuation is not necessary. If the spore count is unusually high or you have adverse reactions to the mold it might be warranted to remove yourself from the building until the remediation is completed.

Are Stachybotrys chartarum and acute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage common among infants?

There is not any concrete evidence that Stachybotrys has been linked to hemorrhaging and death in infants. However, it is always best to protect young children from any avoidable you possible dangers that might affect their health. Black mold is not something you would want a child of any age exposed too.

Can I provide you with a sample of mold from within my home to have it tested?

While we can have a surface sample that you collect analyzed we recommend always to have a full inspection if you suspect a problem with mold is present. Air quality is one of the biggest concerns when dealing with mold.  Surface samples are limited in what information they can tell you. They may tell you what species of mold you have in your home or business, but they cannot address your air quality. We always collect two air samples, upon arriving at your building. We take one form the outside and one from the inside. This helps us determine if there are indeed elevated spore counts. To do our job effectively, we need to decide what kind of spores are present if any and how much or it is there. This helps us identify and recommend the best course of action.

Is Stachybotrys Chartarum common?

 You are most likely safe from toxic black mold unless you have had some water or moisture issue in the past. Having Stachybotrys or black mold in your home is uncommon. A lot of the mold people think is black mold is not black mold. Stachybotrys needs a non-porous surface to colonize and grow.

Are Over-the-Counter Home Mold Tests Kits a Rip-off?
  • One of the most significant disadvantages of using a home mold test kit is that you do not have a professional inspector to interpret the results of the tests which can lead to errors and give misleading results which can often lead to thousands of dollars in damages that could have otherwise been prevented if discovered in the early stages.
  • All homes have small amounts of mold present. So an over-the-counter home mold test kit that confirms the presence of some mold is not very helpful by itself.
  • Home Mold Test Kits are of little use if you cannot see the mold because they do not help you locate it. You cannot tell how severe your mold problem is using a kit when you cannot see the mold.
  • It is imperative to have a visual inspection by a professional mold inspector who has been trained to recognize and locate mold issues and problems that otherwise might stay hidden.
  • The U.S. Government EPA says that “Sampling for mold should be conducted by professionals who have specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling methods, and interpreting results. Sample analysis should follow analytical methods recommended by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), or other professional organizations.”
