If you suspect your Greenwich home has been infested with mold, it is important to have a mold assessment by a qualified, professional company. At Connecticut Mold, we have specially trained technicians armed with state-of-the-art equipment who can thoroughly assess your home for mold growth. If you have seen mold growing or you have encountered a musty, mildew-y smell in your home, an assessment is necessary.
How Does Mold Grow?
Mold grows where humidity meets warm air temperatures and can be hiding in your home. Sometimes, it’s obvious you have mold; you can physically see it growing. Other times, it hides in attic insulation, inside the ductwork of your HVAC unit, or even behind your walls. Since there are many types of molds, and you can’t judge the amount of mold in your home, it is important to have your Greenwich home assessed for mold accumulation by Connecticut Mold. We are Connecticut’s leading mold assessment company, backed by years of experience, thoroughly trained and qualified technicians, and a customer-focused support staff. Not only will you be pleased with our work, but you will also genuinely appreciate our customer service and attention to detail.
The primary reason to have your home assessed for mold is for the health of you and your family. Mold spores ingested into the lungs can cause long term effects and mold can easily disperse throughout your home if the growing mold is disturbed. Mold has also been known to cause allergic reactions in some people, including runny noses, itchy, watery, red eyes, sore throats, persistent coughs, and headaches. Prolonged exposure has been linked to other respiratory issues, so having your home assessed for mold’s presence is of great consequence. An assessment by the professionals at Connecticut Mold will tell you the extent of your mold problem, and we can also offer recommendations based on your unique situation.
Mold can creep into your Greenwich home in a variety of ways, including a natural disaster like a flood; through an intrusive leak in your roof or plumbing; or even from behind a washing machine or refrigerator. There are many places mold can hide, and you may not even consider all of them when doing your own inspection. Our professional technicians are educated on mold, how to detect it in a home, and what to do once it has been found. Other than the obvious mold growth, we also measure the air for mold spores, check for water stains, warped flooring, and seek out the source of musty smells. While home tests for mold are available, having an assessment by a qualified Connecticut Mold representative can assure you that nothing has been missed. By conducting your own assessment, you may accidentally stir up mold spores that you cannot see and launch them into the air. This can be hazardous if you ingest the spores, and it also gives them an opportunity to land in other areas of your home, compounding your problem.
When providing an assessment of your home for mold, our experts will be properly outfitted in protective gear, including masks, goggles, gloves, and full body suits. Mold is no joke; it is easily spread and can cause damage to health and property. We want to ensure your family’s health and your home’s safety, so we are thorough and complete with our assessment. Our technicians use the most advanced equipment and sampling methods when checking your home, including moisture reading sensors to help focus on the areas of water accumulation. Oftentimes, this moisture may not be visible; it can be a slow leak from a pipe in a wall, or a broken sprinkler head that has contributed to a build up of water under your house. We seek out evidence of past water infiltration and subsequent mold that may have been remedied and could possibly return.
Surface samples from bedding, furniture, appliances, and fixtures are taken to measure the mold accumulation. Surface samples and air tests are taken from various areas in your home and over the course of several days to ascertain mold levels and their fluctuations. Connecticut Mold licensed inspectors will detail for you their findings and provide several different recommendations. We are also responsive when you have questions because we understand the magnitude of finding mold in your Greenwich home.
