How To Detect Mold In Your Home

Mold detection in your home isn’t always as simple as finding obvious fuzzy growths in the typical areas. Sometimes you need a proper mold testing to identify hidden black mold and other substances in your Kettle Corner, RI, home, but when home mold testing kits aren’t reliable, how are you supposed to trust their results?

Trust an Indoor Environmental Specialist

Where home mold tests don’t do anything to concretely pinpoint hidden mold growth, the tools and techniques used by indoor environmental specialists offer more sensitive, accurate insights that can lead you right to the source of your mold problem. Other reasons you should trust an indoor environmental specialist include:

• Certification. Most indoor environmental specialists are certified in air quality management. This includes certifications in mold removal and remediation according to standards set out by a governing body.
• Safety. Indoor environmental specialists are equipped with the gear and knowledge needed to safely handle mold removal without further dispersing it into the air or causing additional spread of spores.
• Expertise. Indoor environmental specialists can provide recommendations not just on mold cleanup, but on mold prevention and repairs to water damage.
• Advanced techniques. A specialist’s more advanced techniques and tools will be able to find and identify hidden mold through a mold test.

When you hire a specialist, you’re assuring that the necessary precautions have been taken to properly remove all mold from your home, rather than only the mold you’re able to find through inspection with the naked eye and flawed DIY mold testing kits.

Is It Hard to Find an Indoor Environmental Specialist?

Not at all. Most home recovery and home remediation companies keep a certified indoor environmental specialist on staff to provide support for homeowners dealing with mold issues. Finding a local specialist should be as easy as picking up the phone.
