Mold Testing in Tennessee
Every year Tennessee residents see more and more moisture, whether its large amounts of rainfall or a water leak in the house, Tennessee is a hotspot for mold growth. If any visible contamination is in question you should have mold testing performed at your residence or business right away. Mold can grow after a leak, flood or condensation between 12 and 24 hours. After your environment is dry, we can perform a visual assessment and take air quality and direct fungal samples to check the initial mold and or bacteria growth. High humidity levels are also a factor in the summertime pertaining to accelerated mold growth. Mold spores -whether dead or alive- can emit mycotoxins that can be inhaled, ingested or absorbed through the skin. These mycotoxins can cause adverse health issues
Long-term Effects of Mold Exposure
Mold growing inside a home is an unsanitary condition that may present potential health risks to occupants. Therefore, it is always best to identify and correct high moisture conditions quickly before mold grows and possible health problems develop.
