Mold Testing or Removal
If you've experienced water damage or an unusual musty odor in your home or place of business, you may be at risk of mold contamination. More than just affecting indoor air quality, mold can produce toxins that can cause serious health risks in both humans and animals.
What is mold?
Mold, sometimes referred to as mildew, is a fungal growth that develops where moisture is present. Mold is a natural part of our outside environments but should be avoided indoors. In your home, mold can lead to health issues, potentially causing allergies and other respiratory diseases.
Where does mold grow?
Just because you don’t see it doesn't mean mold is not there. It can grow anywhere moisture is present: inside walls, under the floor, around windows, under sinks, and in the attic. Whether your property is new or old, there is always the possibility that mold could be present.
How does BLU test for mold?
BLU provides thorough, comprehensive mold inspections services designed to get to the root of the problem. First we visually inspect your home and use infrared thermography and moisture meters to identify locations of potential moisture problems. If there are no obvious signs of mold but you are experiencing symptoms related to mold sensitivity, we can conduct an air sample test inside and outside of your home using an airborne mold test kit. If we do find mold through any of our testing processes, we'll pinpoint the source so that it can be treated accordingly.
How does BLU remove mold?
There is not a one size fits all method for mold removal and it's essential to hire a qualified team to isolate the problem to stop mold at the source. It takes the right procedures, specific equipment, and highly trained certified professionals. At BLU we are held to the mitigation standard set by OSHA and IICRC regulations. We understand the science behind mold and mold growth and will do everything possible to be the least intrusive in your home while ensuring that all mold is removed and that the possibility of regrowth is minimized.
