If you are susceptible to mold allergies or have other medical issues there's a high probability that you will have an adverse reaction in moldy environments.
For your home....Mold can decompose matter. Over a period of time, mold can destroy anything and everything it comes in contact with, including your home and personal belongings.
WHAT DO WE DO?
According to a declaratory statement by G. W. Harrell, Florida DBPR Director, on March 28, 2013, a Florida-licensed home inspector:
This inspection is a visual inspection of a property where we look for visible mold and conditions that cause mold. Molds needs moisture to grow. Thus, the inspector will scan the interior of the home with an infrared camera to help identify moisture intrusion. In the event mold is found in less than a 10 sq ft area we can perform an air quality test where we take a collection of air samples that are sent off to certified testing laboratory for further analysis. With 1-2 business days you will receive a detailed report from the lab identifying if there is mold in the air, what type it is, and if its present in dangerous quantities. Bells Home Inspections LLC is NOT in the mold removal or mold remediation business. So, we will not provide these services. If you wish to have mold removed from your home we suggest contacting a mold remediation company.
Our only interest is in providing our clients with accurate reporting of the data we collect in the course of the inspection process and reliable results of air quality and mold inspections samples.
We care, because it matters to you
