Mold Assessment And Testing

  • Symptoms of Mold Exposure
There are three types of mold spores, each causing a diiferent set of symtpoms:
  • Allergenic- Mold spores that cause an allergic reaction in those that breathe in it, such as wheezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, rashes, and fatigue.
  • Pathogenic- Mold spores that cause a supression of the immune system leading to chronic pain, respiratory problems, and sinus infections.
  • Toxic- Mold spores that are very hazardous and may lead to more serious health concerns such as mood swings, anxiety, depression, memory lapse, and confusion.

Orlando is known for being hot and humid, and this moisture can wreak havoc on your home, causing water damage and mold to infest and grow in your walls and foundation. Mold can be incredibly harmful to you and your family if left unchecked for too long, and cause permanent health problems. If you believe that your home may have mold, it is vital that you seek professional mold testing services right away. Healthy Home Environmental Services, LLC  offers mold inspection and home health support; contact us today at (407) 273-9387.
Mold can grow almost anywhere that has a porous material such as mattresses, cabinets, drywall, ductwork and particle board, making detection difficult. If you suspect mold, the first thing you should do is contact a licensed mold inspector to conduct a visual survey of your property. They will take air and surface samples so they can have a better understanding of the degree and density of the mold, and will then identify what steps need to be taken to remove it.

If the mold inspection shows that you have a high level of mold, the next step is to find a licensed mold removal service. The first thing we do for mold remediation is to establish the types and levels of mold, and remove infested materials. Removal and disposal must be done by a state licensed mold remediation company to ensure that mold spores do not spread and cause cross contamination.

Once all of the contaminated surfaces have been properly cleaned and/or removed, Clearance Testing must be performed to ensure remediation efforts were successful. Results must be in the Low/Normal range before the restoration/build back process can begin.

Mold Testing Services

We focus on determining the existence of mold growth, mold type, and the airborne concentrations of mold spores. Basic types of lab samples that we recommend to test for mold:

  • Ambient air samples (the air you breathe in a room)
  • Surface samples (bulk material, swab, tape lift)
  • Complete mold inspection of your home, school, business, or rental property designed to identify sources of water intrusion and to detect mold
  • Our findings, recommendations, conclusions, and color digital photographs are compiled into a complete, written report
  • We utilize the finest equipment for accurate results

​​Mold Remediation Support Services
If the mold investigation and mold testing of your property determines that you have a mold problem, upon request we write a written remediation protocol plan that outlines how the mold should be professionally remediated. This scope of work can be submitted to companies that specialize in professional mold remediation.
After the mold has been properly remediated, Healthy Home will perform a clearance test to make sure that all mold remediation containment chambers are properly constructed and free of dust and debris.
  • All microbial growth is cleaned and/or removed
  • All building materials associated with the mold problem are dry
  • There are no current sources of water intrusion
  • Airborne mold spore samples collected meet industry guidelines for clearance
