Why Test Your Property For Mold? | MoldMold Inspections Mold Testing Jersey Strong Home Inspections Inspections | Mold Testing NJ

Have you thought about mold testing or a mold inspection for your NJ home or property? Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (i.e., substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (i.e., mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold. Research on mold and its health effects is ongoing.

Molds gradually destroy the materials they grow on. That can include but is not limited to furniture, paneling, wallpaper, carpeting, wood framing, or drywall. You can prevent damage to your home and furnishings, save money, and avoid potential health problems by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.

How Do You Rid Your Property Of Mold? | Mold Inspections | Mold Testing NJ

It is impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores indoors; some mold spores will be found floating through the air and in house dust. The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present. Visible mold, once identified and located, can typically be remediated through certain commercially available products or professionally by a certified mold migration contractor. Mold that is on certain surfaces may require replacement. For instance, mold on drywall, carpeting, paneling, wood framing, etc. likely needs to be removed.

Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling the moisture available to it, indoors. If there is mold growth in your home, you must clean up the mold and fix the water problem. If you clean up the mold, but then fail to fix the water problem, then, most likely, the mold problem will come back.
