Visible Mold? Skip the inspection and get it removed ASAP

You almost never a need to spend money on mold testing or inspections once you are certain that you see visible mold.

If you know you see mold, there is no real need to spend money on a lab to confirm what you already see and the proper steps to properly remove attic mold are the same regardless of the type, color, etc. In this case, once you know you have visible mold, regardless of the color, shape, or size, you just should remove it in one of the methods outlined in the next section.

The real concern when people speak of black mold or any other mold for that matter is what kind of potential impact the mold is having on her and her family.

What are the health effects of mold?

Every person responds to mold differently. In addition, there aren’t any specific federal guidelines determining what levels of mold risk pose a health risk.

There is a general consensus in our industry, though: mold counts should be lower indoors than outdoors (i.e. lower than the outdoor air that you breathe in everyday). There are many other factors–such as the weather and asthma–which influence mold counts and the occupants’ health profile, as well.

But because mold is a part of the natural environment, you’ll never have a “mold free” home. This factor and the others mentioned above make it impossible to determine if there is a risk associated with mold from identifying mold count levels alone.

One thing is for certain, though: you should never see visible mold growth in your attic–or anywhere else in your home.

Once mold becomes visible on your attic, roof, sheathing or joists, the mold count is officially elevated beyond a normal indoor environment. And because mold can also be hidden behind walls or inside of duct work, you can actually have even higher elevated mold counts without actually being able to see visible mold growth with the naked eye.

Indoor mold exposure is a relatively recent human concern. Although we don’t have a complete understanding of mold, and sometimes, we can’t even see it, we can still recognize symptoms that may be attributed to indoor mold:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Eye irritation (watery, itchy or red eyes)
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Skin rash
  • Difficulty breathing

This list is by no means comprehensive, as there is still quite a bit about mold and its effects that we do not know. Consult a physician if you believe you or someone close to you is experiencing health problems from mold exposure.

Who is most at risk for elevated mold exposure?

  • Pregnant women
  • Children and infants
  • Elderly
  • Individuals with immuno-compromising diseases or conditions (e.g. those with HIV, certain cancers, etc.)
  • Individuals with respiratory disorders (e.g. those with Asthma, allergies, etc.)

Again, anyone who thinks they have symptoms of mold should see a doctor. And have any visible mold removed immediately.

Kind Words From Our Customers

  • My wife and I are extremely pleased with services provided by Moldman. We had a few small spots of mold growing in our baby’s room ... We contacted Moldman for an inspection … And they were able to recommend us a remedy that we could do by ourselves … without charging a dime! Other companies we contacted wanted to charge hundreds of dollars just to come out and check if it was indeed mold: of course it is mold! It’s nice to see there are still honest people out there and Moldman is one of them.

    Gabriel

  • Moldman was the best mold company I talked to. They explained everything, and were very honest and informative. I would use them again if I ever had another mold issue. I have also already recommended this company to friends. Everyone I spoke to was very nice.

    Kristin

  • Mike came out and inspected my place before I purchased it. He did a great job in explaining to me what he found. He also did a great job of getting the results back in time for me to close on my house.

    Eric

  • Mike was really responsive. He came out right away, gave me an estimate soon after, then came out and did the job the next day once I gave him approval. He did a great job too. I’ve already recommended him to other real estate agents that I work with and passed out his business cards to many people.
