Mold Surveys

moldy wallMolds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or un-addressed.

Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory complaints.

Mold growth may be a problem after flooding. EPA's Fact Sheet: Flood Cleanup: Avoiding Indoor Air Quality Problems - discusses steps to take when cleaning and repairing a home after flooding. Excess moisture in the home is cause for concern about indoor air quality primarily because it provides breeding conditions for microorganisms.

If you suspect you have a mold problem, Olmsted Environmental Services, Inc. will come on site and inspect your home, school, office, factory, or other facility. We can determine the nature and scope of your problem, make recommendations and if necessary, plan for any clean-up or remediation necessary. We will also provide a written report for insurance, landlord-tenant purposes or legal proceedings.

All mold surveys are performed by a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH).
