Tape Testing in Palmetto | When Should You Cal the Mold Inspector?
Many homeowners in Palmetto call a mold inspection service when they start to see visible mold in the house. This does allow us to come in and do tape testing or swab testing, to learn what type of mold you have and how severe it is. But there are signs that show up before visible mold that you can watch out for. If you see any of these signs, we can do an air quality test and find out if there is mold before it becomes visible.
- You smell a very musty, damp smell in your home. This is probably very noticeable in a basement, bathroom, a closet that is next to the bathroom, the attic, or a kitchen. In other words, any area that gets wet, or shares a wall with a room that gets wet.
- You have recently had leaks or flooding in your home. Even with professional drying services, mold can start to grow less than 24 hours after a home is flooded or after a leak forms.
- You suddenly have severe allergy symptoms, increased asthma attacks, or skin rashes – despite no changes in your routine or the weather. Mold can often cause allergic reactions when inhaled.
If any of these signs are present, we can perform tape testing on your belongings and air quality testing to find out what you are dealing with. Contact us online to schedule your appointment, or call us at 1-888-851-5755.
