As the largest mold testing company in the United States, Mold Test Company is helping us raise awareness of the risk factors associated with mold and mold exposure.
Mold exists everywhere; there are no indoor spaces without mold. Knowing when mold is a problem is important. Exposure to mold can trigger allergic reactions and asthma symptoms in people who are allergic to mold. Anyone—with or without allergies—may experience irritation of the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs when exposed to airborne mold particles. Additionally, people with chronic lung disease can get infections in their lungs from mold1.
Since moisture control is the key to mold control, efforts should first be taken to prevent, identify and mitigate any such problems within the building. Indicators such as dampness, indoor water damage, and high humidity can help in diagnosing conditions that promote mold growth. Hidden mold can exist inside walls, around pipes, inside ductwork, in roof materials or more. If your home or building smells moldy but you cannot see the source, or if you know there has been water damage and your family is experiencing health problems, it may be time to test for mold contaminants.
The Mold Test Company has partnered with the American Lung Association to support lung health and raise awareness of when to test for mold. From November 1st, 2020 – October 31st, 2021 Mold Test Company will donate $5 for every live standard mold inspection performed with a minimum donation of $25,000.
