Risks Mold Can Pose To Your Family’s Health
Mold loves dark, moist places to grow and it often goes unseen. When it begins to affect the health of family members, including beloved pets, we don’t always realize the problem is due to mold. Although homes near the water are more susceptible to the growth of mold because of increased moisture, mold can grow anywhere. Aurora Home Inspections, LLC inspects for mold and after testing can determine what kind of mold is present, how extensive the growth is and whether it is likely to cause health problems. Mold can cause respiratory illnesses, exacerbate allergies, and seriously affect those with compromised immune systems. Mold can be a health hazard for families and pets.
How Do We Look For Mold?
A mold inspection may include taking samples from surfaces or from the air. We measure the temperature and humidity in your house, and determine moisture levels in wood, drywall and concrete. Our agents have the experience required to know where to look for mold and are very thorough in their mold detection techniques.
