Mold testing is done when mold is suspected but not seen inside a home.
Sometimes the presence of mold is very apparent because you see it growing on surfaces in your West Des Moines, Iowa home. However, sometimes mold colonies exist and prosper in places you can’t see. That doesn’t mean you can’t be affected by them and you might even suspect they are present because of respiratory issues or mold odors. At AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we want to give you peace of mind that you and your family are not at risk of the potential health dangers of having mold in your home, not to mention that mold can damage the structure, too. Our mold testing process is designed for situations where mold is suspected, but unseen.
We recommend that mold testing be on your regular maintenance calendar each year if you have family members with respiratory conditions. Your home can be mold free one year and have mold the next if circumstances have changed and there is a welcoming environment that mold likes. Things such as a plumbing leak that has gone unnoticed or weather changes that have resulted in a damp basement or crawlspace can put your home and family at risk for mold colonization to begin.
Most mold is not immediately dangerous to those without existing health problems, but there is a species, often referred to as black mold or toxic mold, that can be dangerous for everyone, so if you would like to be sure your home is safe, call us today for mold testing.
