Mold remediation can be costly. Pre-testing provides confirmation of what type of mold is present and if black mold and other potentially toxic mold conditions exist. It is possible that remediation may not be required. A-1 Certified Environmental Services is not affiliated with any mold remediation company, so its clients are guaranteed to receive objective, non-bias test results.

Mold is a growing concern. National media attention has alerted the public to the destructive and potentially toxic dangers of hidden mold spores that can affect a family's health. EPA studies indicate that air levels of indoor pollutants may be two to three times higher than outdoor levels. Mold, the most dangerous offender of all, often goes undetected because of its invisibility. Many people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors and are not aware of the health hazards created by this pollutant.

A-1 Certified Environmental Services provides mold testing in the home or office. Indoor air quality testing will let people know if their indoor air environment has excessive mold spores residing within that confined space. A-1 also provides testing for meth residue and other elicit drug residue to make sure that no illegal activity is or has taken place in that unit.

It is important to know everyone is exposed to mold throughout their lives. Mold is natural to the outdoor and indoor environment. However, exposure to excessive levels of mold (allergenic, pathogenic and toxigenic molds can pose a danger to individuals, especially, children, the elderly and domestic animals). It is also important to know that mold is a symptom of a moisture problem.

There are many ways exposure occurs. For example, breathing in mold spores, or by the spores coming in contact with the skin (handling items that are contaminated with mold). Mold can also enter the body by ingestion via not properly washing hands after handling objects contaminated with mold and consuming food ridden with mold. Mold can cause health problems, including severe illnesses. It also has the potential of making a home uninhabitable. Mold that may be problematic for one individual may not affect another.

Buyers looking to purchase a home with a prior roof or water leak or mold issue disclosed by the seller will want to take this seriously. If a real estate agent is needed who will take this issue seriously, contact Nadine McMillon a licensed real estate agent, by going to this website:

Clients will be matched with a real estate agent who will listen and respond to all concerns!

If there is mold growth present, it is prudent to test the environment for excessive levels of spores, and get it cleared up. If a lab report indicates that there is an elevated level of mold spores and/or toxic mold within the home, or the contaminated area is very large, a professional indoor air quality assessment is recommended. The situation may or may not require professional mold remediation, but the first order of business is to test and to determine where the water infiltration is coming from.
