Where to Check for Mold in Your Home

Where to Check for Mold in Your Home

Posted on 12/01/2020

No matter how thoroughly you clean your house, you could be harboring a silent invader: mold. Mold and mildew thrive in the secret, damp, warm spaces inside your home, and mold exposure can be a serious health hazard to the inhabitants. Mold spores lead to toxic air quality, so a growth requires immediate professional mold removal from a mold specialist like MasterTech Environmental.

Mold Hotspots

Moisture and warmth are two primary environmental growth factors for mildew and mold in the home. If you suspect you might have undetected mold in your house due to an odor, signs of mold sickness, or decreased air quality, you should check three major hotspots: basements, attics, and crawl spaces. All three of these places have poor air circulation, are prone to dampness, and can experience water leakage, which makes them perfect for undetected mold growth. However, mold can grow anywhere in the home under the right conditions, so a certified mold inspection is essential regardless of your findings. If you suspect a mold issue in your home, you should always call an expert mold remediation company to inspect and remove the infestation.

Mold Testing 

When MasterTech Environmental arrives at your home, our expertly trained technicians will carry out thorough testing and mold removal services. A mold expert will conduct a visual inspection, digital documentation, thermal imaging, moisture mapping, airborne mold testing, surface mold testing, and inner wall testing. Then, you will receive a mold inspection report along with an explanation of the upcoming mold remediation process (if applicable). Our technicians will carry out the mold restoration process with proven methods and tried-and-true equipment to leave your home mold-free, clean, and healthy!

It was a pleasure to work with Tom and his crew at MasterTech. They did a phenomenal job doing clean up of our crawl space and attic. They were very professional, honest and courteous and they knew the mold remediation business very well unlike the 3 other companies I got in touch with who just cared about the money. MasterTech…

I have used Mastertech for two separate mold remediation issues in my house. They arrived on time, kept me informed of their progress and resolved the issues the way I wanted it done. Their staff is professional and thorough. They did an excellent job. I highly recommend them.

I was very pleased with the work completed by MasterTech after a sewer pipe broke & caused a great deal of damage to my finished basement. The staff members are top notch. I would definitely recommend them to friends & family.
