Mold in your home, specifically in your crawl space foundation, could pose structural or health issues. If the problem is too severe, it will be noticeable. What proceeds is to perform mold removal, and before you know it, you are rid of any threats.
Still, there may be some cases where a mold problem is hidden. For those cases, mold testing is convenient. A mold inspection is only necessary after spotting mold or evident signs like health issues or water damage. However, other specific scenarios call for mold inspection and testing, particularly in a hard-to-reach space like a crawl space:
- Acquiring or renting a new property is a significant investment. If it has a crawl space, it’s important to perform mold testing to reveal any hidden or concealed problems, avoid additional expenses, and secure good air quality.
- Features such as crawl space insulation and such could be covering an infestation. Testing for mold under the vapor barrier in the crawl space as well as other hot spots is key.
- Sometimes mold can’t be seen but smelled or felt in other allergies and health symptoms. When these occur, and you can’t identify a visible cause, mold testing could reveal if the mold in the crawl space is causing it.
- If your crawl space has a history of mold infestation, these sometimes could come back if they weren’t remedied correctly. If you want to be free of any worries or prevent further damage, you can get mold testing.
The EPA states that “Sampling for mold should be conducted by professionals who have specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling methods, and interpreting results.” For mold testing to be reliable, you have to count on an expert.
