What to expect from your mould inspection. Once an appointment has been set we will arrive to inspect for visible mould or mildew and the cause. Almost all mould infestations are caused by water penetration in the home. If needed, specialized devices will be used, such as a moisture detection tool, infrared camera or, a borescope. If visible mould is found, we then take an air samples using specially designed air sample cartridges recommended by the lab, or take swab samples. The samples are then couriered to an accredited air quality testing lab, where lab technicians count the spores in the samples and are able to determine if your home has elevated levels of mould and what types of mould are growing in your home.

There are many other symptoms as well. If you have any of the above symptoms, confirm with a doctor.
Are you or your family members/coworkers or employees experiencing any or all of these symptoms and think it is a result of your indoor environment?
If your answer is yes, confirm symptoms with a doctor. Then, it is suggested that you have your indoor air quality tested in your residential or commercial building.
It could be why:

- Employees’ productivity is decreasing
- You have and increase in employee absences
These and more can all be attributed to the presence of mould in your indoor environment.
Some common types of dangerous moulds are:
Stachybotrys are the most dangerous and their symptoms are:
- respiratory issues
- nasal and sinus congestion
- eye irritation
- sore throat
- hacking cough
- chronic fatigue
- central nervous system issues
- aches and pains
Stachys, as they are referred too for short, have been linked to hay fever, liver damage, pulmonary edema, and in the most severe cases, brain or nerve damage and even death. Infants and the elderly are particularly susceptible to Stachys and can become very ill when they are exposed to Stachybotrys and in worse case even death.
Cladosporium, Fusarium, and Penicillium:
Are not as dangerous as Stachybotrys but still have the potential to cause allergic reactions, hay fever, nail fungus, asthma, and also infections of the lungs, liver, and kidneys. Fusarium has been linked to gastrointestinal illnesses and even complications to the female reproductive system. Chronic cases of Cladosporium may produce pulmonary edema and emphysema.
Aspergillus is the least toxic of the mould groups and has over 160 subspecies of which only 16 effect humans and they can all be treated by a doctor.
My Promise to You
Choosing the right inspection service provider can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment–after you’ve hired. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a thorough inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a quality inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort. I guarantee that I will give you my very best.
