More About Mold Testing & Mold Inspection
What Is Mold Inspection & Testing
Mold is simply the end result of a growth of fungus (or fungui if plural) on a surface. Its presence in any home leads to problems.
We have extensive knowledge of the parts of a home that breed mold. Plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems, roofs, and windows are examples of areas of concern.
Mold inspection begins with a standard walk around of the outside of a home. We are looking for evidence of mold, or the presence of a situation that leads to mold. Your home has several locations where mold is likely to occur. Most of them involve water.
One example is windows where the seal is not tight. Mold can grow on the outside of the frame. Another place we look is around the foundation. If we find wet spots that do not drain, then we look further for evidence of mold.
If your home has a basement, then that will require closer examination by our inspector. Pipes in the basement may leak and go undetected if you do not regularly go into the basement.
Once we complete an inspection, it is time to take samples. These need to be tested. In most cases we will send the suspected mold to a private lab for testing. They will provide a report which we will provide to you the homeowner. We will explain the contents and give advice about corrective action.
Part of our work involves giving you advice on mold prevention. Once mold gets a hold of a home, it can be difficult to completely eradicate. The key as mentioned earlier to keep your home dry. Humidity and moisture are a perfect setting for mold to grow.
Why You Need Mold Inspection & Testing
We stress to all our customers that prevention is the key to dealing with mold. Do not wait until the mold is about to take over your house. Call us for a mold inspection. If we do not find anything then you have not lost anything. You have obtained peace of mind that your home is in good shape.
Part of our inspection always involves sending suspected mold for testing. Many times the test will be negative. That is a good thing. We want to err on the side of safety. Any growth needs to be checked out thoroughly.
You may not be planning on selling your home at the current time. However, if and when you place your property on the market, it is highly likely any potential buyer will want a mold inspection and testing before closing a sale.
If you have already had the inspection completed, you can feel sure that your home will pass any test. You will not have to worry about a positive test result holding up a sale. In addition, you will not encounter a surprise cost as the buyer will expect you to pay for all repairs.
Think of a mold testing and inspection as a visit to the dentist. You hope that nothing is wrong, and you leave the office with a good feeling of relief. That is what we seek in our business. Periodic testing will ensure that mold can never take hold and damage your home beyond repair.
How Are Mold Testing & Mold Inspections Done
You start the process by calling us and scheduling an appointment for an inspection. Prior to the call you need to make notes of any leaks or other accumulations of water you have noticed in the home. You may want to make a visual inspection on your own to give us some idea of potential problems.
We will examine all parts of your home and exterior that are ripe for mold to grow. This will include any places you have identified. As noted above, we collect and send off to a lab any growths that could be mold.
When we test, we sometimes use a swab or a tape. Laboratories provide testing kits which can be utilized in the proper setting. If your carpet has the possibility of housing mold, we will cut off a sample to send for testing. In all cases, we strive to provide the testing facility with the best possible specimen so a valid result can be obtained.
Mold testing and inspection is not something to postpone. We stand ready to meet your every need. Do not wait until the mold has taken hold. The worst possible result is mold that spreads spores that impair breathing and cause health issues. Finally, a home may have to be evacuated while the mold is treated. No one wants that result.
Call us and schedule a preventive inspection and testing. You will be glad when we have finished our inspection and testing gives your home a clean bill of health.
About Carson City Nevada
Carson City Nevada, officially the Consolidated Municipality of Carson City, is an amalgamation of cities located in south-central Nevada, including Las Vegas, Reno and Elko. The name was given to the place by the famous southern author and television showman, Kit Carson, because of its beautiful golfing spots. Carson has a wide variety of accommodations to choose from ranging from budget motels and hotels to luxury bed and breakfasts and casinos. The climate of Carson City is sub-tropical with hot summers and cool winters, making outdoor recreation a popular pastime for locals and out-of-town visitors alike. Because of its central location, Carson City’s transportation system is one of the most extensive in the west.
The history of Carson City dates back to the Gold Rush heyday of the late 1890s. Known as a mining town, miners traveling to nearby California found gold along the Colorado River. An unstable economy hindered their efforts to transport their precious cargo through the massive mountains of the Great Depression, but when the nation finally started to recover, Carson became a boom town. Reeling from the loss of mining jobs, the city began planning major renovations in an effort to revitalize and rejuvenate. Today, a visitor to Carson City will see modern skyscrapers mixed with old-world charm, including a historic landmark, Grand Palace, featuring an appointed piano restaurant.
A major source of revenue for the city is gambling, especially in the four Las Vegas casinos: the Bellagio, the Venetian, the casino at Silverton and the Stratosphere. Millions of dollars in real estate taxes are generated each year, with many people buying homes in areas outside of Carson City in order to raise capital for construction and improvements to the casinos themselves. Although Carson City is not without attractions, some of its most famous attractions are the Bellagio, the Stratosphere, and the MGM Grand, all located in the historic district.
