Professional Mold Testing in Morristown, New Jersey
Before we ever suggest that mold testing is recommended, we will personally inspect the property to ensure it is necessary. We are in the business of helping people get rid of the mold problem in their home - not charging you for services you don't need. If the inspection points to testing, our lab partners will provide quick and accurate scientific evaluation to help us determine next best steps. Our inspections will provide a free quote to see how much the testing will cost.
As a part of our testing process, we retrieve two samples from indoor areas. These may be air samples, affected surface samples, or a combination of the two. Depending on how you describe your problem and what we are able to find, we will pinpoint areas of focus to help diagnose the problem at its source. Samples are sent to the lab for unbiased results. You are provided with their assessment and we give you our recommendations for what to do next. We will give you the meat and potatoes in plain English, making sure not to overcomplicate something that can already be very new to you.
Signs you Need Mold Testing
Most often, Morristown residents or their homes will present with hallmark signs that indicate mold testing should be performed. Not all symptoms are specific to mold and not all mold will produce noticeable effect. Most common signs include:
1. Unexpected and non-specific allergic symptoms
Difficulty breathing, runny or blocked nose, watery or itchy eyes, dry cough, skin rashes, sore throat and wheezing are just a few of symptomatic reactions to breathing mold.
2. Visible mold growth
If you see something, say something. Mold should never grow to the extent where it becomes visible in your home. Give us a call immediately if mold has already become visible.
3. Musty smell
Whether in your basement, attic, or anywhere in between, the most common indicator that mold may be present is a musty smell. Listen to your nose! Mold and excessive moisture give off a very distinct odor that should not be ignored.
4. Recent known water damage
If your basement was flooded or your plumbing burst, the moisture may have quickly seeped into areas that have the potential to harbor mold. Preventing or halting the problem as quickly as possible can help avoid a necessary removal later down the road.
5. Asthma or lung infections
Imperfections in air quality can quickly develop into breathing issues and possibly asthma. In-home fungal growth has been known to cause lung infections and result in lifelong breathing complications. Breathing in mold is no joke!
