Mold Testing Houston

We are the mold testing Houston experts!

We have a long history of providing high-quality, comprehensive mold testing and other indoor air quality services to Houston-area homes and businesses. We are experts in collecting suitable samples to evaluate if there is mold in your home. When we arrive at your home, we will collect Air Samples from the areas where we suspect mold is present.

Our Process

It is necessary to collect at least one air sample outdoors to provide a baseline for what is in the surrounding environment before any further sampling can be done. After that, we’ll collect interior samples from potentially problematic areas. Outside samples collected in nature are compared to inside levels.

When we arrive at the inspection site, we take notes of what we see. Field observations and laboratory results from samples gathered are included in our findings and presented in a comprehensive report. Typically, the results of mold examinations are available within 24 hours of doing a field inspection. After receiving your mold report, we ask that you phone us to discuss the findings. As a result, you’ll have a solid grasp of the research’s findings.

What is mold?

Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.

Molds reproduce by making spores that usually cannot be seen without magnification. 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. Molds gradually destroy the things they grow on.

Many types of molds exist. All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Molds can produce allergens that can trigger allergic reactions or even asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. Others are known to produce potent toxins and/or irritants. Potential health concerns are an important reason to prevent mold growth and to remediate/clean up any existing indoor mold growth.

Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent moisture problems in buildings. Moisture problems can have many causes, including uncontrolled humidity. Some moisture problems in buildings have been linked to changes in building construction practices during the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s. Some of these changes have resulted in buildings that are tightly sealed, but may lack adequate ventilation, potentially leading to moisture buildup. Building materials, such as drywall, may not allow moisture to escape easily.

Moisture problems may include roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building, and unvented combustion appliances. Delayed maintenance or insufficient maintenance are also associated with moisture problems in schools and large buildings. Moisture problems in portable classrooms and other temporary structures have frequently been associated with mold problems.
