Mold growth is often an issue in Florida due to damp air and moisture intrusion. Humidity levels must be maintained and proper ventilation ensured to help prevent mold. A mold inspection is necessary to determine if mold is present in the air. This can cause respiratory issues, asthma attacks and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. To be completed successfully, mold testing requires experienced and qualified experts.
Environmental Consulting ensures Florida homeowners and businesses are in compliance with current environmental regulations. When the moisture level is elevated the result is often mold damage. The potential sources include sewer backups, high levels of relative humidity, water line leaks, roof leaks and issues with water build-up and condensation.
A mold inspection detects common signs of damage including water stains, loose wall or floor tiles, particle board damage and discoloration. Relative humidity above 60 percent is considered a potential issue for indoor air quality. When conditions are favorable the result can be microbial growth. Mold growth can begin in 24 to 48 hours after water damage including leaks, floods and burst pipes.
If the residential or commercial property was built before 1978, lead based paint and indoor air quality testing are necessary. Lead exposure has numerous potentially negative implications for both children and adults. When lead-based paints in a building are stripped or damaged, the occupants will be exposed. This can be prevented by knowing if lead-based paints are present. Investors can make an informed decision regarding purchasing specific properties.
Asbestos is a natural fibrous material that can result in serious health risks including lung cancer, pleural disease and mesothelioma just by breathing the mineral fibers into your lungs. If you do not recognize the symptoms quickly, the disease may not manifest for years. Asbestos testing by a certified asbestos inspector is important because this material can be in your:
- HVAC duct insulation
- Textured paints
- Fire doors
- Drywall compound
- Sprayed acoustic ceilings
- Elevator equipment panels
To protect your health and comply with both federal and state restrictions, an asbestos survey is mandatory before you have any work performed such as renovations. Your asbestos sampling includes:
- Sampling of building material containing asbestos
- History of your structure
- Reporting of the locations, area, material conditions and lab results
- Walk-thru including the access points of your building
Millions of deaths in the United States are connected to outdoor and indoor air pollution. People suffering from asthma are easily negatively impacted by mold exposure and dampness in the home. Additionally, mold is a major cause for individuals suffering from chronic sinus infections. The risk of asthma and respiratory diseases increase when an infant is exposed to unusual harmful mold for a prolonged length of time. Unfortunately, many physicians do not have sufficient training for the identification of illnesses due to mold.
The spread of mycotoxins significantly affects the immune system resulting in allergies, wheezing, asthma, coughing, hypersensitivity, memory loss, anxiety and depression. All of this can be prevented with environmental air quality testing. Air quality testing is critical for the detection and proper removal of mold and asbestos.
