Georgia is known for its moist climate. Mold is one of the most common causes of allergic symptoms and certain types of mold can cause health disorders. If a structure has visible mold, a strong musty odor, moisture problems or high humidity problems, mold sampling should be completed. Our inspectors do mold testing and take Surface Samples to determine the types of mold present, amount of mold present, and if any health risks exist. Samples are sent to a professional laboratory for analysis and a report will be issued in 3-5 business days.
It is also important to understand why mold is growing in a home. Our inspectors can tell you possible reasons why a home is experiencing a problem with mold growth through mold testing and what conditions need to be rectified to prevent mold growth in the home.
A house that has withstood old age can be a treasure. But these houses are also prone to develop mold. Building codes have changed over the years, and older homes may have been built with materials that are no longer recommended. Due to damages and leakages, the growth of mold is susceptible.
Champia’s inspectors have the experience to recognize mold that might have slipped from your notice. You might have mistaken those moldy particles for dust.
