Mold in your home presents serious health risks for you and your family. Most of the time, you know if you have a mold problem. After all, it has a distinct look and smell. But what if you can smell mold, but can’t see it? If that’s the case, you may need a mold inspection. At Ram Restoration, we offer a mold inspection service. Whether you want peace of mind or have a specific reason for wanting a mold inspection, we can help.
What is a Mold Inspection?
A mold inspection is for when you smell something moldy but can’t find the source of it. If you see it, you don’t need an inspection because you already know it’s present in your home or office. However, smelling it and not seeing it means mold is likely present somewhere but you can’t find it. That’s where a mold inspection comes into play. If you need one, our team will come to you and search for the mold. From there, the removal and remediation process starts.
Reasons for a Mold Inspection
As we’ve already said, mold inspections only need to happen if you think you have mold somewhere but can’t find it. However, you may a specific reason for wanting an inspection. For instance, when you sell your home, the new buyers typically want to make sure mold isn’t present. To accomplish that, you’ll need a professional mold inspection. Ram Restoration performs many mold inspections for new homeowners. Also, we’re a certified mold inspection company.
An inspection is always a good idea if a member of your family gets sick and can’t seem to get rid of the sickness. Exposure to mold causes many health risks, especially if that person already has a weakened immune system.
When Should It Happen?
If your home flooded recently, the quicker you act matters. Mold growth happens fast after exposure to water. As long as you catch the flood early enough and contact the proper experts, you won’t have much to worry about. However, if it’s been awhile since the flood and you smell mold but can’t see it, contact the professionals for a mold inspection.
When You Don’t Need One
If you visibly see it in a space, you don’t need an inspection. Once you see mold, you know it’s growing. Once you identify mold growth in a space, the correct next steps include contacting professionals to treat the mold. Typically, mold only needs treated once. However, you want to make sure you choose a reputable company. We are a certified mold inspector and work with you from start to finish to complete the job. Our process ensures complete mold removal from your property.
