Nobody likes to consider the possibility that mold exists in their home. Many believe that mold is a sign of failure in keeping house and dread the thought of a Louisiana mold inspection.
However, that is not the case! There are many causes of mold, and you don’t have control over all of them.
If you suspect mold,
Mold inspectors should be trained, certified, and insured. The certified inspector will inspect and test your home according to strict standards. The purpose of a successful inspection is to give you an accurate description of the problem, as well as the steps to take to eradicate mold from your home.
How Louisiana Mold Inspections Work
- First, the inspector will ask some questions about your home. He will want to know if there have been any recent leaks, damage to the house, or unusual damage to floors or walls. The inspector will also ask if you or any member of your family is having health problems. Mold exposure symptoms are commonly mistaken for colds and allergies.
- The inspector will then do a complete inspection of your home. The inspector will look for visual signs of mold including discolored walls, warped floors, water stains, or any signs of visible growth. To begin,
he will use special equipment to take relative humidity readings. Additionally, he will use a moisture meter to measure the moisture content in walls, floors, and other parts of your home. He’ll also look for signs of plumbing issues near tubs, showers, sinks, washing machines, hot water heaters, etc.
- Should your Louisiana mold inspection call for testing, air samples and swabs will be collected. Air samples are taken based on the home’s square footage. Also, swabs of visible or suspicious growths undergo analysis at independent labs. After receiving the laboratory analysis report, the inspector will help you determine your best options to resolve any problems found during the process.
