Like termites, mold can be destructive to both your home and health. It can also be hard to detect, especially if it’s hiding in your Long Island home. Don’t let hidden problems get the best of you when negotiating a price on a home or commercial property. Call the professionals at Inspecticore at (516) 524-0673 to schedule a mold sampling or air quality test in Long Island or any other residential or commercial inspection service.

The Assessment Process

Because mold can be dangerous, we highly recommend all our clients include mold sampling or air quality testing as part of an initial property assessment. The process allows us to assess the property for mold both indoors and out. We first inspect all areas of the Long Island home for visible signs of mold, which include discolored walls and obvious black mold growth. Then, we take air samples in and outside to test for mold spores, as air quality is a much better indicator of mold growth than standard visible inspections. When the test results come back from our lab, we’ll send it to you and explain all findings as well as go over recommendations for applicable remediation. Air quality tests can help prevent future property and health concerns.

Mold Testing Long Island

Typical Mold Symptoms

Mold affects people in different ways: sinus issues, nasal stuffiness, eye dryness or itching, breathing problems, and so on. Some are more affected than others, but the typical mold symptoms are usually mild but nevertheless dangerous. Check out the CDC’s website for more information about mold and how it can be detrimental to your health, or ask us for more resources. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t causing illness.

For your family’s safety, don’t buy a new home without an air quality test and termite inspection. The façade of the perfect home can blind you, but if you’re wise and ask for comprehensive specialty inspections, you can mitigate future financial troubles. Contact Inspecticore at (516) 524-0673 for more information about mold assessments, and to schedule an inspector to come by and give your home a fresh bill of health.
