Mold Inspections in Oakland & Macomb County, Michigan
Have you had a roof leak or a plumbing leak? A broken washer hose or a bad seal on your dishwasher? Even small amounts of moisture can lead to mold growth when the temperatures and conditions are right. Although minor moisture problems may not seem worth filing an insurance claim for, especially if the repair is less than your deductible, the presence of mold may make the process worth it. Some species of mold can affect your health, and without a proper inspection, you may be ignoring what could become a costly, dangerous problem.
At Advance Restoration, we offer mold inspections throughout the Oakland and Macomb County areas. Our experts can inspect your home or business and find areas that have been affected by mold, even when it is hidden inside air ducts or behind drywall, insulation, or wood. If mold is found, we offer sampling and testing services to determine its type and the level of danger it presents. We also offer complete mold remediation services, should you choose to have it removed.
Why Should You Consider a Mold Inspection?
Mold can grow quickly, especially in environments that are warm, moist, and dark. This often means that it will be hidden from view inside walls, under cabinets, in the basement, or in the HVAC system. If you have had any moisture problems or water leaks, it is best to have your home or business thoroughly inspected for mold growth. At Advance Restoration, we can use tools like thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and borescopes to find hidden moisture and mold with little or no damage to your building.
By determining whether or not you have a mold problem, you can make an educated decision about filing an insurance claim. Although repairs like replacing a leaky faucet or sealing a dishwasher may be inexpensive and less than your insurance deductible, if it turns out that you have a serious mold problem hiding under a cabinet or behind a wall, the costs for repairs may be far higher than anticipated.
What Are the Health Effects of Mold?
As part of the reproductive process, mold releases small, often microscopic particles called spores, which are carried through the air to new locations that are colonized if the conditions like humidity and temperature are right. These particles can irritate the eyes, throat, and lungs when encountered and, depending on the type, they can cause symptoms like:
- Sinus infections
- Asthma attacks
- Allergic reactions
- Flu-like symptoms
Children, the elderly, and those with existing health problems are especially vulnerable. Some mold species also produce mycotoxins, which can cause more significant health problems like fatigue, depression, lung infections, nervous system damage, and more.
